The Big Show / Re: problems with calf
« on: August 29, 2011, 06:48:09 PM »
that calf was most likely stressed pretty good before birth because of the foot being back; when that happens you can get some oxygen deprivation and even when the calf is born and survives, there can be some brain swelling and that results in a lethargic calf or sometimes you hear them referred to as "big dummies"; but after the swelling goes down and the brain recovers, the calf will most likely be very normal and healthy;
keep up what you are doing and I bet you will have a very normal calf in a week or so....

I have carried a metal scotch comb at times and if they come towards me with their heads a tap on the nose with the sharp ends of the teeth will take care of aggression; then they don't have to check if you have a stick in your hand or not.

The Big Show / Re: Will beef industry transition away from corn?
« on: August 22, 2011, 02:06:55 PM »
just google milo and add + feeding cattle; that should help you narrow down your results.

but it feeds just like corn, however, it has to be cracked or ground because the outer shell is too thick for the cattle to utilize; it takes just a bit more per lb. of gain;
it is pretty fine when it is ground but we have a total mix wagon so mix it with enough silage and ground hay to make a really nice feed.

we have fed milo to cattle for years; it is the crop that we rotate with from corn....in each field, corn one year, milo the next.
milo does what corn does; cattle like it; have to know how to use it but it is good feed.

so we sell corn, feed the milo to cattle.

a single dose of Draxxin.....

end of story

at the cost of it.... it should be end of story, end of the line..

many, much cheaper, more reasonable methods...

I do have to disagree with you......
we had one calf alot the same as the one that prompted this thread;
had patched the eye, given shots, eye got better then after the meds were worn off, the eye got bad again, so went through all that again, same result.

Then I was told by another purebred breeder about Draxxon.
one shot, and that is the end.

the calf that was forced to suffer because we tried more "traditional" methods didn't deserve all that.
we who had to run that calf up the chute how many times to treat that eye in a "traditional" way had better things to do.

You can do what you want, but I will pay a premium for a product that works the first time, saves me time, and saves the animal alot of pain and suffering.

ya gotta tell us about the sires of the calves also;
no fair the cow has to bear all the burden....

that calf is marked just like that old bull Buck was;
I am really disappointed with so much white like that.  In our country, the commercial guys would never buy a bull with so much white; white on legs is very bad when it comes to marketing.

I had two Cut Above calves last spring; one out of a solid black cow is a pretty little baldy and the other out of a half simm/angus cow, blaze face herself is a solid black blaze face, so I was not aware that he could chrome them up this much.  The calf out of the half Simmi/angus cow was champ breeding calf at our county fair and he will be heavy in the hunt for bull calf champ at our state fair; he is prob the best bull calf we have ever raised.....a tank, very deep, very thick but the cow he is out of never ever misses...just like yours.
