The Big Show / Re: Remington Lock and Load 54u

I was able to get some - apparently mine came from one of the first collections after his accident.   Got 30 freezable embryos using three straws on one flush.  I understand its few & far between.

Unfortunate and senseless loss.   I got to know him personally through shows.   He was always willing to help and knew what he was doing.   RIP Karlton.

The Big Show / Re: Cow Choking on Placenta

We've had it happen before too.   We can't watch them all and the ones on pasture do what they will.  However if I see it in the pens, I get rid of it before the cow can get to it.  That is also partially for my own benefit as my gag reflex is triggered by the sound of it! blech.

I guess I don't see the problem.   Fortunately (or unfortunately) we don't have to classify here.  Steers have to have papers..    And a Sim steer can be sired by MAB, Monopoly, HW, pick any clubbie bull... as long as the cow is a registered simmental.   Technically she should be a PB making the steer 50% but I know many are not .. and there are many 3/8 showing with papers that have 3/8 SM right on them.   I know many of the other breeds are the same way.  So if you want to make a rule to exclude those cattle from the breed classes, you would need to put it in the rules that the calf MUST be 50% and above or whatever % you think is right.   And sure a DNA test of the winner might make some more honest...    I actually would have a bigger issue with the Hereford classified steers..   knowing that they are required to be 100% on a papered show.

I liked what we got and will use him again.

He is calving ease but not a true heifer bull.  We had birth weights from 75-95
I would agree with this.


The calves we got are thick enough but might wish for a touch more frame.  I like the soundness and bone we got.

The Big Show / Re: retaining flushes
« on: October 05, 2014, 08:12:32 PM »
It really depends on how well I know the seller.   Most of the time, the flush never happens and if it does, its supposed to be at the convenience of the buyer.  Also, look at the details of the flush..  does it specify number of embryos?  We have purchase several with a retained flush and its not been a problem yet, but as I said, I've always made sure I know the seller and have a good feeling about the deal.

The Big Show / When is the latest you would castrate a show steer?

How late would you cut or band a bull and still expect him to be a good show steer?

The Big Show / Re: Question about ESSENTIAL FEEDS???
« on: September 03, 2014, 01:52:26 PM »
We've fed the cattle feeds as well as the supplements.   I think the heifer developer is a pretty good product but not sure that it is much different from other company's developer.   Supplements.. we've fed several that they sell and had mixed results.   Like the lubrisyn, nu-grow, BR Fat, and a few of the others.      Where essential excels .. IMO.. is in their goat feeds.

Make sure she got some kind of antibiotic injection.    Good old penicillin works pretty good on injuries.    She also could be given something for the inflammation .. what depends on if she is bred or not and what your vet would prescribe.   Otherwise.. hydrotherapy.. just run water on it 10-20 minutes couple times a day.

The Big Show / Re: where do you stay when showing at KC Royal?
« on: August 28, 2014, 11:50:31 AM »
Do not stay at Days Inn west on I70.   It was horrible last year.   They had a large group of Army, Guard, ROTC people come in and had room mixups like crazy.   Parking was a complete mess..  could not get out when we had to leave at 4am.

it's pretty hard to believe that appeasing them didn't have something to do with it.
I think that is the real answer to the whole deal.

e don't show at county fairs, except our own 4H show, and it's not really a fair.  We don't take any of our good ones, and we only take as many as we need to fill the breed class.  The reason is simple- too often, the good ones do not do very well.  It's not worth it to us to take a heifer that just won her division at a Jr National, only for her to get beat by an ill structured, sloppy fat, hairless pig of a heifer.
  That is the truth!
