The Big Show / Re: Removing stains.
« on: December 02, 2011, 09:32:02 PM »
I've shown Charolais cattle and Shorthorns. I think GreenSpot stain remover (Can get it at a big R or tractor supply co.) or Cowboy Magic (same) work the best. You could use it before you wash, or if your calf lays in poop at a fair after a wash. You don't even have to rinse it out. Just spray and brush it in with a curry. Its easy and simple and doesn't smell gross either.

I've seen people zip tie extenstion cords to the top part of the chute on each side and use plug in lightbulbs and it  makes clipping so much easier.

The Big Show / Re: calf color question

It can really end up being anything. I bred a redfactor char with eyecandy and got a light gray smoke. The calf could end up being a cream color like the mother or even all white, though the all white is probably more than likely.

We had the same problem, it's probably just the weather changes...but we poured them again. We have  a fly/lice/tick pour that works well and doesn't kill their hair either. It it is dry skin, try conditioning if they are show cattle.

I like Eye Candy. We had a hereford cow have a 75 pound black baldie who looks amazing. Then my first time heifer had a smokey heifer, about 70 pounds without assitance. He tends to have more females, the black baldie heifer has amazing hair and that sure isn't from her mother.

The Big Show / Re: What is your agriculture story?
« on: February 22, 2011, 08:02:20 PM »
Like they said, its in our blood. My Great grandfather(dads side) owned a large dairy operation up in wisconsin and my Grandparents (moms side) own a farm as do my aunt, who has a large cattle operation in southern illinois and my uncle who has a red angus herd. I personally live in a suburban area so i don't live on a farm, but my cattle stay with my aunt. Its amazing how little city folk know about livestock and ag. A few of my friends come to fairs and love it. Its a totally different life.

we normally feed them the night before then holdoff water and food until after weigh in b/c they tend to get rather grumpy and it removes any risk of dehydration or stuff like that

The Big Show / Re: Pantene?
« on: November 30, 2010, 04:19:28 PM »
I've seen people use dove, suave, dawn, and joy soaps but i've never seen pantene. we personally use treseme or sometimes mane and tail both which are sometimes bogo at walgreens. you get weird looks when you check out at walgreens with 8 bottles of soap and hair dye though.
