The Big Show / Sire Directory

Does anyone remember when you got a new book in the mail they always had a hip height and a weight on every bull? For me that was helpful if I had a cow that needed downsized or a little more growth in their calf.

I have a problem with a sale that is supposed to end at  6 and you have the winning bid on something and the sale drags on because someone bid on another lot and that keeps the whole sale going. Then after 2 hours of extending someone all of the sudden bids on what you should of had bought 2 hours ago.  >:(

For me it was Ildeno. Makes me think I should have raised goats. (thumbsup)

The Big Show / Re: Bulls developed in feedlot ended up sterile.

I have clipped a lot of bulls over the years that have been fed in feedlots for production sales. As far as I know there have not been any problems with fertility. The owners I have clipped for always have them fertility tested at the end of the feeding period before I clipped them and only the ones that passed went into the sale.

That's a real nice calf Tallcool. Where are you going to end up with him?

All I will say is you can't believe everything you hear or see. Dealt with these people before.

The Big Show / Re: When is it considered overkill?

Is it considered overkill if you are a club calf producer and when your kids get old enough to show you send them to town with some of your better calves?

We faced this problem several years ago. Both boy's showed and played baseball. When they got older they started playing on select travel teams. There was no way they could do both. We couldn't be out of town for the weekend or a week and do a good job of taking care of the calves like we needed to and be competitive. As for now if I were you I would let them do both until you have to make a decision but sooner or later you will have to decide. It won't be fair to your calves or your kids teammates to try to do both. Just my two cents worth. Good luck. Tim

The Big Show / Re: Hanging beef before cutting up
« on: December 31, 2014, 05:06:44 PM »
Boy this is an old one isn't it? (lol)
A few years ago we had a steer to butcher. I always ask the butcher to let it hang 21 days. They would only let it hang 14 day's. My oldest son ( who was going to college at West Texas A&M University ) said dad I will butcher him. He came home and we killed him and hung him up. I said let's let him hang 21 day's. He didn't make it back for 30 day's. I said he has green stuff growing on him! He said don't worry I will cut that off you won't eat that! That was the best beef we have ever ate.  My opinion is longer is way better!

The Big Show / Re: Using a donkey
« on: December 10, 2014, 07:10:53 PM »
We always use a donkey to halter break calves. Back in the day we had to many to halter break by hand and now I'm to old and crippled. We put the collar on the donkey and hook them about two foot apart. You don't want a donkey that is broke to lead because the calf will lead the donkey. Contrary to popular belief a donkey doesn't always break a calf to lead but they will stop when they hit the end of the rope. Good luck!

The Big Show / Happy Thanksgiving

I won't be around a computer tomorrow so I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving today! Hope you have a safe and wonderful day with your family and friends and have a lot to be thankful for.   <party> (clapping)                   

The Big Show / Spanking n/c
« on: October 25, 2014, 07:52:38 PM »
I don't know about all of you but I am getting tired of reading the news and seeing parents arrested for spanking their kids. What the he11 is the matter with this country? Parents need to start being parents and not homies to their kids. If this would have been the attitude when my kids were growing up I would be in prison. They got whooped when they needed it and they turned out fine. My oldest boy is obtaining his PHD in animal health and nutrition instead of living in prison with 6 kids from 6 different women so I would say the spankings didn't scar him for life like our current civilization thinks it will. Thanks for letting me vent.

The Big Show / Re: online sale sites

I have to agree with titan. I have bought through both Breeders World and cwcattle sales. The things I liked about cw was I could pay on line with a check right after the sale whereas with Breeders World I had to mail a check. Also whether I spent a few hundred dollars or several thousand they called the next morning thanking me for my purchase as well as informing me my payment had been made. As a buyer I felt appreciated. (thumbsup)

The Big Show / Re: Zilmax and Optaflexx Photos
« on: August 11, 2014, 03:44:20 PM »
Sorry to everyone if I didn't make my first post clear.

Yes it was the manufacturer that pulled it off the market voluntarily.

I don't know that it's fishing so much as "trolling."  Don't feed it - zilmax or the troll.

I'm not a troll. The sole purpose of me registering on this site was for me to visually see how implants and/or beta-agonists effect muscle and/or male secondary sex characteristics and maybe see if it can do the same to horses (I'm sure I'm not the only one to have thought of implanting a horse or feeding it optaflexx).


There are other ways to increase muscle in horses which I won't discuss here.
