The Big Show / Re: Breeder Map?
« on: August 25, 2016, 03:45:37 PM »
With today's technology, there are a lot more online sales.  What I'd like to start is a discussion or poll of how many people never buy sight unseen to those that will buy online.  I also believe that a breeder's/seller's reputation makes or breaks buying online.  (Sorry if I am trying to hijack this thread.)

Haha, not a problem.  I'm wondering because I am going on a trip this weekend to pick up a heifer that I bought sight-unseen (off a picture and video) ironically enough, and I am wondering about good places to stop and look at calves that will be selling online this fall.

The Big Show / Breeder Map?
« on: August 25, 2016, 12:17:35 PM »
Does anyone know of a map or list that shows where most or all crossbred/clubby breeders are located.  Or even one that includes purebred breeders as well?  If not, I think this could be a really handy thing for someone to make!

The Big Show / Ears Forward in the Show Ring
« on: April 29, 2015, 09:20:48 PM »
So I know how to get my calf's ears forward in the show ring, but I find I'm constantly having to get at her, she won't keep them forward.  But I have seen people who manage to keep them forward the entire show, and I was wondering if you had any tips or tricks you were willing to share.

I have never had a Sullivan chute, so I can't compare them.  However, I really like my Stierwalt one, except for the fact that it has a manufacturing problem.  The hole at the top in the front where the pins should go in, don't line up, so I am going to have to drill additional holes.

He was actually one of my favourite bulls that Lautner's had there.   I was surprised I didn't hear much about him after.  Maybe I missed something, but it was sure nice to see some size.  I've attached a couple photos, but they aren't very good.  It was pretty bright that day, but I sure ain't complaining! 

The Big Show / Re: Mile High Hereford Sale
« on: January 20, 2015, 07:28:22 PM »
Word around the yards was that lot 7 is headed to South America, just a rumor is all

That's what they announced when the lot sold.

I also saw the following online :
Mile High Night Denver, CO 2015 National Hereford Sale: 41 live lots/ $30,421; 5 embryo lots/ $8270; 1 flush/ $15,500; 1 semen lot/ $78,250; 48 total lots grossed $1,382,350

The Big Show / Terminal Shows, such as Denver
« on: January 20, 2015, 07:26:08 PM »
While in Denver, a parent explained to me how it, as a terminal show, works for lambs.  They explained that aside from the animals who qualify for the sale, the lambs are led directly from the ring to the truck, where the exhibitors receive market price.  Is this the case with steers as well?  I am curious as to what is the reasoning behind making it a mandatory terminal show?  I understand that if they qualified for the sale, they should have to sell it.  But if the exhibitor does NOT make the sale, why can't they take it home and try to sell it privately or make the sale at another show?

He's one that I would be proud to show, he is definitely going to turn some heads. 

The Big Show / Cleaning combs
« on: August 22, 2014, 10:02:50 AM »
Anyone have any tips for cleaning all the glue and crud out of combs? I've decided to take on the task of cleaning all the show supplies.  Before you ask, yes, I am crazy.

Does anyone know if this bull is heifer safe?

I like her.  If I could do one thing, I'd like to smooth her out over the shoulder.

The Big Show / Re: Growing hair without the best facilities..
« on: April 29, 2014, 08:02:39 PM »
I have heard that before, do you know exactly what it is about the light that is related to cycling?  I plan on breeding her on her next heat.  Once she is bred, will there be a problem with the dark?

I'll go pick up and install a mister tomorrow, and see about getting some cheap plywood to cover the opening.  Thank you! 

The Big Show / Growing hair without the best facilities..
« on: April 29, 2014, 05:33:30 PM »
There was another topic that was saying it's best to just have cold and dark for growing hair.  My problem is, I only have a small barn (it's really more of a 10' by 15' shed) without doors, so I can't get it very dark or cold.  I slicked out my heifer, and am trying to grow back a nice, full coat.  I am currently rinsing with ice cold water two-three times a day (at 6am, 2pm and sometimes again at 8pm) until she gets a chill, then tying her in the "barn" with a fan until dusk.  Is there anything else I could be doing, or anything I should be doing differently?  I have heard many mixed reviews on whether or not to use oils and/or conditioners daily, any more opinions on this?

I agree that the color is really cool,  however I find that it takes away from the calf.
