The Big Show / My eagerly anticipated mating’s!
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:56:12 PM »
Well this morning was a much better start compared to last weeks disaster. Here is one of my AI calves out of True Grit (Herf) and one of my One & Only heifers. Tipped the scale at 72lbs. and was up nursing within 30 minutes.

The Big Show / Opinions about feeding silage?
« on: February 07, 2013, 11:23:06 PM »
Is there any benefit to feeding some silage if it is available in your area? We don't have any available to us but we could get it by the barrel full from one of the local feedlots. Where it is packed in the pit once you take it out it could mold so using the barrel would limit the amount you would have at any time and your loss would be minimal.

Is there any advantage to it and how would you adjust your feed ration to utilize it best?

The Big Show / Feeding schedule
« on: February 03, 2013, 03:19:00 PM »
I would like some opinions about feeding schedules and what you should do when your late for your schedule. I have been told that if you are more than 2 hours late on your regular schedule you should skip that feeding. I have also been told to just feed their normal hay but no grain. I imagine that there are folks that will tell you all kinds of things but that doesn't make them right and maybe there is no perfect way except to just not be late. But it happens, so what say you?

The Big Show / Dead Hair removal?
« on: April 06, 2012, 11:07:36 PM »
I have some friends that I sold a couple steer that feed them up and put them in the freezer, anyhow one of them works at the city shop in his town and he brought home a street sweeper brush and put it on a post in his pasture. The steers love the stupid thing and they have pretty well removed all of their winter hair on it. I thought it was funny until one of my kids started asking him to get them one for their show calves, they thought they had found a easy way out of their daily routine of rinse, brush and blow. The were pouting when I told them they couldn't skip the hard work.

Kids, you gotta love them!!!

The Big Show / Salty Dog Question????
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:39:07 PM »
Maybe my memory is going bad, but I thought Salty Dog was a hired man son and tonight I was reading Traush's sire catalogue and it says his sire is Heatwave. I did a search on here about him and in a post from January 2010 when he was displayed in Denver it also says he is a Hiredman son. So when was it decided that he was a HW, or did they do a DNA test or is that one of those "He is a HW" so his calves will hopfully bring more money. Just wondering!

Also in the thread from January 2010 there was a bull on there named TAXI, what ever happened to him and does anyone have any calves and/or pictures?

The Big Show / What is your biggest?
« on: March 23, 2012, 01:11:16 PM »
So what is everyones biggest calf that you can remember having without assistance? Had one yesterday that I think is mine, a Tiger Woods that tipped the scale at 145 pounds and was 16 days over due. Nothing to brag about but I thought it would be interesting. I like them 80-90 pounds better!
