The Big Show / Re: New here and have a question.
« on: May 31, 2007, 02:15:27 PM »
   One of our middle daughter's steers would only take her when she was about 8 or 9 years old. He would not try to do it to anyone else and was broke very well with a great temperament. I had to get her a short pipe and told her when he did come at her to give him a good tap or a bit harder bump. It takes the right calf & kid to get it done, but he only tried it once after she implemented the punishment. She never had to use it again, but like I said, it's hard to get a child to stand in there when they are getting taken. If your calf is @ the pt. where you think this kind of punishment won't make matters worse, it may be worth a try. Good luck, Cab

The Big Show / Re: Success with Lutalyse?

   What is your gold, or total protocal as far as what you are trying to achieve? Need some more detail as to what you are hoping will happen by shooting just lute. Might need some more steps to get the results that you are aiming @. Cab

   I'm so proud of you for 2 good things that you did last weekend Brahmergirl. One, & most important, you are thoughtful & compasinate for your niece & what she is having to deal with right now through no fault of her pown , & two for confronting the know it all judgemental ringside clowns. Cuddos to you. It's about more than standing 1st. Cab

   We have 4 Man Child calves this spring, and are having a hard time getting a good read on what they may turn into. They do have potential, but right now he is on what we call, the side line. I have been taking a second look @ the Money Shot bull as well, but will most likely wait until we hear more. Trying to give up the carrier bulls. Cab

   Elbee, How long or many years have you been cleaning & reusing like this & can you tell ant differences in your results? Thank you in advance. Cab

   Cattle Chick,  look @ www.valleyvet.com, or toll free 800-468-0059. Study up alot & ask people that have done it successfully. I'm sure that there is great info on the net for it. I use to freeze brand with varying degrees of success. Some people seem to be able to make it work well every time. Good luck, Cab

   Do either the ASA or the Maine Anjou Ass. require clean tests to participate @ their major shows. I think that would be a good start to clean things up & help the image of the breed. That to me is a no brainer & is probably already in place hopefully. Cab

The Big Show / Re: Correction to the AMAA PHAF and PHAC list
« on: April 26, 2007, 12:24:08 PM »
    There are mistakes on alot of the sites. People are going to have to get ahold of the owners of the bulls that they are planning on using and point blank ask the quetions. I e-mailed Onlinebullstud.com yesterday about Habeger's Texas Hold'em bull, because if you put in critieria for PHA & TH free list under club calf bulls, he comes up clean for both, but is THC. They e-mailed back, but the bull is still listed free.

   Interesting, when you look @ Frostbacks gestation length, it stands out, that they really get tight around that 282-289 area, but 10 days early & 10 days late re4ally common. For everybody that is always wondering about how long??? It would be interesting to go by breeds & bulls to figure out gestation lengths. I have only had 5 Cowboy Cut calves, but I think he could be a short gestation length bull. Started on the 2nd round this morning. A cow that was bred on 7/2/06, recycled & was rebred on 7/22/06 calved 4/26/07. I think that is 8 days early. Have 3 Radio Actives coming soon, they look to be longer term. I haven't have alot of previous experience with SH, but aren't they longer in general? Have one old broken down Simi X cow that is bred to Sunseeker, she always has a early small calf that I don't like that usually rises to the top B 4 fall.
  On one of my previous posts, I asked for the best PHA & TH free bulls to use that can compete. What I was also kind of trying to show was that until we can come up with one that will, us club calf freaks will use what will work  & sell. I know it doesn't make any sense to alot of people, but it's the total reallity of the situation. I find it abit more amasing that we use Heat Wave & his offspring, when we are pretty sure that the heirfers probably won't end up milking even close to well enough.
   Does anyone have any thoughts on the Open Bar bull? He does interest me. The Black Impact in the pedigree, how much will it pull down the milk & maternal values? CAB

   Have used Doctor Who & most likely will again. Problems with him are, won't very often sire stout enough steers, but looks like he will work out by leaving acceptable females, little early to tell for sure how good. He is better structured than his sire by far. Is crossed up quite abit more than I like to see as far as siring hybred vigor. Does give you hair on some. Friction is a good choice. I like the looks of Live Wire,a Friction son that is THC. Has anyone heard anything about any Live Wire calves?
    I was entertaining the idea of using Sugar Ray some. The Chi X deal may need to be explored some again. Where can I find more info on the Flash bull, please? Cab

    RCS, I really like your choices as to what youare flushing her to next. 3C Machco is my pick of the Simi's right now and have been loking @ the New Edition bull alot lately. Cab

The Big Show / 06 sync breeding results
« on: April 25, 2007, 12:23:42 PM »
   I thought it would be fun to put this up. Seems like there are some young producers that wonder how long to wait B 4 getting concerned about late AI due dates. Of coarse we all know that different bulls have different ges. lengths. These were all mature cows that I synced with 1 shot cystrelin @ the time of putting in a cidr for 7 days & @ the time of pulling the cidr I gave 5 cc of Lytalyce, then started heat cking. & bred off of standing heat. Actually put in 20 cidrs. Bred 1 cow naturally caught in on the 1st of July,(she happened to calf last out of this group on the19th of April). One cow lost her cidr & showed no signs of heat and was later reset bred 2 times, didn't settle ,& was sold. Another cow had her cidr in, but no response, set up later & bred, settled & is due on 5/14. The rest of the cows are as follows.Pulled cidrs on a Thursday afternoon, early evening. Started breeding Sunday evening. Bred 15 that day,which was 7/2. Bred 1 on the 3rd, & 3 on the 4th.
5 cows calved on 4/4, that's 9 days early on a 285 day gestation table
2 cows  on the 7th, 6 days early
1 cow on the  9th, 4 days early
3 cows on the 10th, 3 days early
1 cow on the 15th, 2 days late
1 cow on the 16th, 3 over
And again the cow bred natural, 1st cow bred & last to calf on the 19th, 6 over
Of the 6 cows that recycled. I had one 9 day wonder, bred her 2 Xs, she reycled, sold
one recycled 2Xs, sold
4 rebred on the 1st recycled from 7/22 to 7/25, Am ecspecting to get 4 calves from 5/3 to 5/5. We'll see how that works out for me.
   I liked the way it worked last year, because I got 2 swings out of it in approx. 3 weeks. All AI calves, but had to sell 2 coes, which happened to be older. Going to set the mature cows up for Sunday the 1st of July this summer. CAB

   So far, of the bulls listed, I like the Life Line bull best. I have used WMW some over the years, and he does leave good to great females, but alot of his calves will toe out severely. Bold Statement will be fun to watch develope or crash. I read him as being way too straight & posty. Pale face works on some, but not consitant enough for me. Ido like the Sonny bull, but I can't afford him, maybe a son, but then we get back to proven sire questions. See what we're up against trying to find a predictable, genetic defect free club calf sire that can and will compete. CAB

The Big Show / Re: Dead calves - was it aliens?
« on: April 25, 2007, 09:20:07 AM »
   DL, I totally agree with you in theory, but my problem is that I hardly ever get a possitive diagnois, so you just lost money on the dead one and what is your charge to poist  a calf? Doesn't take alot to lose the profit potential from another cows baby. I know it's a pretty bad attitude, but it has been my experience over the years to try to be patient, and think some for yourself. There definately comes a time that you need to post & send off tissue, but economics and results play into my decisions largely.
   Show Heifer, I assume that you have ruled out the possibility of any of the clostridials attributing to your problem. The clostridials is what it sounds like to me, but that is just a semi educated guess. Have a good day everyone. CAB
