Goat/Lamb Chat / Re: Feeding for the new trend and preventing Fungus
« on: September 07, 2016, 01:57:18 PM »
The best thing I have found to fight fungus is a product called Envirosep. It is a disinfectant spray for human use. Have used it in goats and it works wonders. As far as feeding goes the best product I have found to put cover on an animal quickly is the purina supplement Powerfuel. It is a highly fat based supplement that will really help them put on some extra conditioning. Good luck to you.

He was a son of no fault and out of a fullblood boer doe. He did really good around at local fairs. Took home a few championships. But at our state fair he was lower in his class around 7th I think. As he grew he got taller and narrowed up over his top. He didn't stay as stout as we anticipated.

I agree with what shorty breeder said about his weight. I don't think you will have a problem whatsoever with him making that in the time period that you have. As far as the flank goes we feed beet pulp to our show calves to get them to drop in their flank as well as fill out through their flank area. we just give them about three pounds daily, soaked so it swells and is easier to digest than it is for them when fed dry. However we start feeding them at the very beginning of the season. I don't know how much it would help with this time period. Purina also makes a supplement called depth charge that is reasonably priced. We have tried it on a heifer and have been pleased. Hope this helps. Good Luck 8)

I think she is pretty nice. She is very square. I like her style and levelness. From the looks of her now I say market, but with age and time that may change. The only downfall I find is she doesn't have a lot of hair, and where I come from they will send you to the bottom of the class for it. But that could change with the seasons too. Overall I think she is a pretty nice calf. (clapping)

I use Lister Stars. These are my personal favorite. With these I use a covercote or fine cut blade. It really depends on how close you like them cut. I have also seen some people using premiers that love them. It is really just personal preference.

From what I can see it looks like he throws some nice looking calves. Its hard to rate the bull without knowing his EPDs also. But judging just by looks, he seems to be a pretty nice bull. He is long as a train. And has muscling to burn (clapping)

Overall I really like her. She is very feminine in her lines and very deep from a side profile. If I did have to point out one thing I didn't like it would be that she cuts up in her flank area a little higher than I like. But I really like her as a whole. (clapping)

Out of the two cattle prospects the heifer is my favorite by far. But in my opinion it looks like she is at a later state in her maturity than the steer. Once that steer comes along and puts some finish on he might be pretty good. I really like the Hamp wether. He has plenty of length of hind saddle and has muscle definition to boot. The only negative I can find (getting Nit Picky) is that he breaks a little in that hip loin junction, but other than that he is almost picture perfect. I think he will do very well with proper feeding and exercise. Nice group of animals you have there (clapping)

The Big Show / Re: Opinions needed on sale bulls
« on: July 26, 2015, 03:22:50 PM »
I will be starting to prepare the following three bulls for sale in September:

i)   D. Tarantino 159, 3yr old Shadybrook Scotty 83K son
ii)  D. Threadneedle 187, 3yr old D. President 049 son
iii) D. Ultimate 200, 2.5yr old D. Ronin 073 son, out of a Sprys All Gold D052 daughter

Pictures of the sires on the website if interested.

Any opinions are welcome.

I will start with the fact that I feel D. Ultimate possibly has loose shoulders.

I will agree with the fact that D. Ultimate is loose in his shoulders. However he is my favorite. I think he could use a little more length as stated before, but put on the right cows I think he will make some great calves. In my opinion he is the most shapely and expressive in his rear 1/3 and has the most power out of all three. One thing I also appreciate is his depth from a side profile. So many bulls you see are muscled out the wazoo, but they sacrifice so much depth of body. But 3 great bulls!  (clapping)

Wow what a powerhouse of a front end he has! He looks to be very stout through his front 1/3. I think he could be a little more powerful in his rear if I was to get nit picky, but overall I think he is a good looking calf! <rock>

The Big Show / Re: Is this a Market Heifer or Breeding Heifer
« on: July 19, 2015, 01:34:25 PM »
In the first pictures she looked like a market heifer to me , more of a breeding heifer in the most recent picture . Nice heifer either way !!

I would have to agree. I think in the first pictures she has tons of muscle definition in her rear end from what I can tell. In her most recent picture she doesn't appear quite as muscled through her rump and looks to have matured to a bigger framed, longer made heifer. But as stated before she is a nice heifer either way and in my opinion could compete in either division. (clapping)

Wow, he is huge! He almost reminds me of a piedmontese, what with them being double muscled. I think he is beautiful and a great example of what bulls should look like! (clapping)

HAHAHA! This is Hilarious (lol)

Good for Nebraska State Fair! Time and time again animals test out positive for illegal drugs with little to no consequences. So good for the fair.
