The Big Show / Re: Melatonin pills question?
« on: December 19, 2020, 11:28:57 AM »
It's been well over 20 years since we used melatonin and we trying to take the edge off of a couple of calves. You'll have to research what levels are necessary to help with hair growth. Good luck  :)

To give you a correct answer a person would need to know the concentration of the melatonin pills to be used.

I agree with using feed stuff products. It puts you more in control of your ration IMO. Depending on where you are located will somewhat determine what you have available to you. I use the basic AAOK ration to start out with and then tweak it for my own goals. I usually feed both CSH & Beet Pulp. I personally think Beet Pulp will work as well as any other product to fill one out and expand rib shape.

I would give it at the first breeding in this situation.

cattle's comfort zone is 20 to 60 degrees F.

We have had good luck controlling insects using Tempo on surfaces.

Thanks Steve. I found the sale catalog. I was kinda hoping it could have been one of the Ellie 2201 daughters. I ran a full sib bull here for a few years. Came home on August 19th 2019 to find him laying dead had gotten laid down with his back downhill and subsequently suffocated. Very tough loss to take. He was probably the most complete bull that I have ever ran in my 50 plus years of owning cattle! :( :'(
  I know lot numbers 13 to 18 were out of Ellie 2201.

The Big Show / Re: Best bull stud to visit
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:33:31 AM »
Both of those collection centers are impressive and top notch. I usually go through them each a few times a year. Traditionally after Denver up until turn out time in the spring are the best times to see the most bulls. Vogler's at Ashland, NE. is good and I have heard that the Mitchell, SD. stud is impressive. There are great studs located all over the US that would be fun to visit depending on where you are located. Great people work at the studs in general!!

I would have also induced her but I will say that her birth was more than likely when she would have calved without the induction. Most induced cattle will calve 48 to 72 hours after being induced.

The Big Show / Re: In your opinion, who is the best show calf producer?
« on: September 15, 2020, 01:08:47 PM »
Remember there is a huge difference between a producer and a trader depending on what you want to do and what your budget is if you want/need someone to sort through the calves that are out there being raised by many producers go to a trader / dealer. If you have an eye or know someone that you trust and want to try to save a little coin, find some local producers to guide you.
  Sydney if you would include your local in your profile users could point you to good producers in your home area and depending on where you are from, different areas like somewhat different types of calves especially haired verses slick calves.

The Big Show / Re: Umbarger Feed Help!!!!!
« on: September 09, 2020, 06:22:13 PM »
Develop a relationship with your Umbarger feed dealer/salesman. That would be the best. Someone that can put his/her eyes on your projects.

The Big Show / Re: Pongs too big but middle not filled out
« on: September 06, 2020, 03:24:07 PM »
I don't really have any advice for you feed wise but I think your friend was meaning the fat pones that appear around the tail head when a beef is possibly getting too fat. It is a good indication of when one is finished. Once a young beef puts on that kind of cover it is tricky to get it off without sacrificing body condition. Most show heifers get plenty of condition on them during their show career but will get the condition sucked back off of them after calving. Hopefully she hasn't put an excessive amount of fat down into to her developing mammary gland area.
