I took a look at some of the animals he's pulled out and it look like he likes them whistle fronted and pushing some condition. The heifers he's pictured with don't look too small though, what are we calling 'moderate' these days?

Sold 10 steers yesterday, average of 620 lbs, got 109.25/hwt.

Looking at the Full Tank website, it is pretty vague on exactly how much to feed to an animal. Right now beet pulp makes up 13% of our feed ration, how much Full Tank would I have to feed to make that equal, and would I be able to keep my level of show mix the same?

What's the cost difference of Full Tank to beet pulp?

One place here in town said that they can't get any in until beet harvest this fall. The other place in town has been ordering it in from California by the semi-load, so they always have it in stock. It's not the typical molasses covered shreds though. These are some bigger chunks with no sweetener added to them. The pieces are so big that they can almost look like wood chips when you get water in them.

We'll be pulling in 2 bull calves and 3 heifers. One of the heifers is in the Billings sale and the other will be a National sale consignment in Denver. One of the bull calves is a Bruce Almighty on an Fighting Irish daughter, the other is a Formula son. The NILE sale heifer is a Bruce Almighty on a Irish daughter, and the National heifer will be a Formula daughter on a Hercules daughter. The other heifer is a Bruce daughter as well.

We'll see what he thinks of our bull calf. He's pretty clubby looking for a Guppy.

Doug Satree will be judging our Gelbvieh show in Billings. Does anyone know what he looks for in bulls and heifers?

Thanks for the suggestions. We typically let the heifers drag the halters for a few days and get them good and muddy, but it's hard to keep these new ones on without them being tightened up. Is there any risk of the nylon melting if you throw it in the wash with warm water? Just want to make sure the wife doesn't try to string me up with one of them :)

I just bought a bundle of new halters from Sullivan's and I'm trying to figure out if there's an easy way to tighten them up so they don't slip off the animals when halter breaking. It seems like these new nylon halters just don't tighten up as good as those old rope halters used to. Does anyone have any methods of breaking in new halters?

It's going to depend on what state you're coming from. We're in ND and are in the same situation right now. My understanding is that everything must have a negative test for TB/Bangs/Brucellosis before getting off the trailer in Billings. Bulls over 12 months of age may also require a Trich test, depending on breed and health requirements. If you're planning on purchasing anything, that animal must come from a herd that has had a negative test for the entire herd within the past 9-12 months. Check www.thenile.org for the latest requirements for entry.

I had an 04 Chevy 2500 with the Duramax that I traded off in February for an 2008 Chevy 3500 Dually with the new Duramax. The 04 would pull around 19mpg on the highway and dog down to around 12-13 when we had the 24' trailer behind it. Plenty of power though! The new truck didn't start out too well with mileage, I got 11.4 when I drove it home from the lot, but as the miles have been put on and it breaks in, the mileage has been getting better. I'm at 16,000 miles right now and it's up to around 15.5 for mileage. I averaged 12.0 mpg towing the trailer to Kansas and back in May, so it's actually getting better mileage than the 04 with the trailer on, and that's including a long bed crew cab dually on the 08 versus a short bed crew cab on the 04.

I also had an 02 Powerstroke 7.3L before I got my 04 Duramax and that was a heck of a truck. Mileage was around 18 empty and 12-13 loaded, but she had the guts...so much so that I blew the tranny right out of it.
