Here is a daughter we own out of our Irish Whiskey/Angus Donor that is for sale.  She is very thick, yet correct and seems to be getting more feminine as she ages.

Ok so I have some recip cows lined up, pasture lined up, barn lined up, now I just need to know where to look for some of the best maternal genetics via embryos to start a herd with.  Suggestions?

The Big Show / Castration Question
« on: February 13, 2012, 12:33:07 PM »
When do most show steer operations steer their males?  At birth?  After a certain number of days?

Also what is the preferred method of castration, banding, clamping, cutting for show steers?

Thanks for the response and answers.  I guess a little more detail of my current situation would answer some of those.  I have a couple commercial farms of 200-300 head that we purchase feeders from throughout the year, these would be the people I would approach about using their cattle as recips.  I can trust them and we already have a relationship, they also have good facilities to work cattle, as do we in our current barn.  I also have a market for any cattle that would not be show quality, as we feed out 500 head or so a year, so they would just be put into our feedlot.  I understand the importance of marketing a finished product as well, I see this as the biggest challenge in getting started, if in fact my goal is to market show animals/seedstock.  I will have to put the pencil to the paper in this regard and give it some more thought.

I currently help operate a feeder/stocker operation on about 200 acres in Ohio.  We buy feeders in the spring, run on our pasture until late fall, then send to a custom feedlot to finish out.  I have a young son, and another on the way, and would like to get them into showing cattle as they grow.  I have around 30 acres that I would like to put a show cattle barn on and run a small herd of females.  The situation I keep running through my head is to buy 8-10 really good cows, flush them, and use a Recip Herd to calve out and raise the calves until weaning, bringing the calves back to the barn to show/sell.  The questions I need help answering are:

1.  How many times a year can you flush a cow, how often do you breed her to have her own calf.

2.  How much on average does someone charge to use one of their cows as a recip?  I have a few farms who we buy feeder's off of that I would approach about doing this for us, but would like to have an idea before I approach them.

My plan would be to put in maybe 3 of the embryos out of one cow, and then sell the remaining to help pay for those three being placed in the recip.  Giving me around 20-30 calves per year to choose from, the rest being sold or sent to the feedlot.

Thanks for any ideas, insight.
