The Big Show / Re: Good headache remedies wanted!
« on: July 18, 2007, 01:37:42 PM »

have you considered going to a DO or a Chiropracter?  I used to get headaches like that ALOTTTT and then had a car accident nobody would see me except my chiropracter and the ER (which I was not going to the ER) so I started seeing the Chiro and do not get headaches like I used to. (side note: I have not gone to the DC for 3 yrs as insurance changed) I now go to a DO who treats not only your symptoms, but your whole body.

For a headache I take 3 Ibu's and 1 tylenol.  If at all poss. I take a tylenol PM and sleep it off.  I also rub flexall 454 or horse linement since they no longer make flexall on my neck, the smell relaxes me and the heat helps my neck muscles relax.   Good luck!!  I feel for ya.

Oh and drink LOTS of water!! That could be some of the problem.

I am a inland type of person.  I even hate swimming pools, I do know how to swim, but when I was a kid my dad would hold us girls under the water and since I have become an adult, I all of a sudden have an intense fear of anyone horseing around like that with me or my kids in a pool, my husband and I have gotten into some good fights over this. Just thinking about being in the water and being held under or not being in control makes me hyper ventilate!!

The Big Show / Re: How much grain is to much grain?

From when I talked to them last, they are reducing the amount of grain and going to feed him 2 times a day. They went and got a mineral lick.  I just want this little girl to make weight with the calf, she has worked hard and gave up all of her other animal projects to do this one so this is it.  Thanks for all of your information and I will let you know how it turns out.

He will not eat if fed 2 times a day, from what she has told me.  That is why she is feeding grain just one time a day. No squirts, regular poo with very little grain in it (but I only saw the poo around 24 hours after he had eaten grain).

I am having a conversation with a family that has been in the beef project for 2 years now.  Their calf has only gained 100#'s in the last 104 days.  At this rate they will not make weight for their fair which starts July 23.  She is feeding this calf 37 pounds of grain at night(29#s grain and 8#'s of steamed flake corn plus 4 oz of corn oil)  he cleans it up within 45 min.  She feeds him hay in the morning.  The calf weighs 875#'s.  Can you feed to much grain and have the animal stop gaining like he should? Is less really more?  How does that work?  They wormed 30 days ago, the calf is not sick he eats everything they give him.  They are going to start upping his grain every 5 days by 1#, I am trying to talk them out of it. But she thinks that it is working.  I did talk them out of jackpotting him.  Any ideas?

The Big Show / Re: leaving cows out in the pasture
« on: June 01, 2007, 08:23:44 PM »
I for one do not believe in abortion, and I believe that some horses need put down. I do not think we should eat them as the bible says something about eating one hoofed aninmals is a no no.  I do however believe that my dog should have the right to eat horse, and I think that the slaughter houses should open back up in the USA.  I do not beleive that wheat/rice or other grains should be shipped from China. I think I should have the right to go out in the pasture and shoot my horse or dog or cat if need be.  Why spend money on animals that need put down?  While I am at it...... I think that we need to start getting our oil from our country and the Caribou will just have to adapt.  So Knabe, I  applaud your bluntness!!!

So I had posted about my daughters shorty steer not eating like he should and just not looking good, and I was blaming the feed, and I think I was right.  We switched to a feed made in Fort Collins and the steer is back on feed and acting like he has been starved.  Which is good since we are a bit behind at this point. Upon looking at the old feed compared to the new feed the old feed is mostly oats, hardly any corn in it for a finisher.  Just keep your fingers crossed that he starts packing the pounds on instead of looking like a red and white giraffe.

I am still looking into implants for next year when we first get the calf home but I just do not know enough about them to feel comfortable with using them, guess you could call me a chicken!!!  ;D !!!
