The Big Show / Replacements Heifers from these Angus cows
« on: February 26, 2013, 01:11:39 AM »
We run a pretty strong commercial Angus herd, I'm looking to tap into it slightly for replacement heifers. I have been doing a lot of reading and searching on the topic but just want some fresh ideas. I'm pretty much open to all suggestions but mainly looking the Simmy, Maine, Char route. Here is a picture that gives an idea of what I'd be working with. Most of them could use hair, and some guts and power. Most are medium framed. Thanks for the suggestions in advance.

The Big Show / Mommas Boy
« on: February 26, 2013, 12:28:35 AM »
I have been searching for bulls to breed to some Angus cows for replacement heifers and stumbled upon Mommas Boy. Meyer on the top and Harietta on the bottom....wow. For those who have used him what have your results been? What type of female does he work best on?

The Big Show / Meyer 735

He has one of the best maternal pedigrees I have seen. Has anyone seen any calves out of him? What are your guys opinions on what situation he needs to be used in?

The Big Show / Cow dead..Answers?
« on: February 20, 2013, 04:25:53 PM »
Just got a call from back home, they found one of my better young cows (one in my avatar) dead. She was in a picked cornfield with 50+ others. She wasn't due till May so I think calving can be ruled out.....any ideas? Just looking for the most opinions possible to try to figure this out.

The Big Show / How early is too early?
« on: January 28, 2013, 05:21:57 PM »
After calving how soon do you start putting the calf on a halter and messing with them? I am not talking leaving him tied up for long periods of time, just like 30 minutes to an hour combing or washing. We have always started in June but was wondering if earlier will be better.

The Big Show / How Livestock Feeding has Changed in last 25 years.
« on: January 15, 2013, 01:00:27 PM »
This was a topic of discussion in one of my classes and I thought it was pretty interesting to talk about. The first thing that popped into my head was the changing from a fatter animal to a more lean, high marbling animal. I believe that this is due to the America's perception now a days that everything "fat" is bad and should be avoided. What do you think has changed the most?

The Big Show / Soundest THF Bull
« on: December 28, 2012, 11:50:48 PM »
We have a powerhouse Sunseeker cow that we are really excited about. However, she needs a bull to put some soundness into her. I need a THF bull or I'd use Unstoppable.....so basically I am looking for a THF replacement for Unstoppable. Only of my ideas so far was Tabasco from Trausch's, anyone know anything about him?
