IMO, most of the better showmen will find their best place in the ring and make themselves be seen..    I just dont' want to see them do that at the expense of another exhibitor.    I just wonder where the politeness to others has gone?

My showman wasn't trying to be first in, was just going in as the others trickled into the ring.  She might have been in the first 3rd in.   They were somewhat lined up as they had come out.   In any case, you are  correct, there was more elbow room at the end of the line when they all got into the ring.  The point I am trying to make is that there is not really any excuse for rudeness from one exhibitor to the next.   My kids have all experienced being covered up in the ring and they know what to do about it.    That is one thing, this was another, more dangerous thing.  Had my showman been a smaller/younger child or less experienced, and/or our heifer a more flighty animal, this could have been a bad accident.

So true!   My showman survived that to show in the next round.. 

The Big Show / Showmanship scramble & courtesy to other exhibitors
« on: July 16, 2013, 08:46:03 PM »
We recently attended and participated at a show.  My showman made the first cut and was going back into the ring for semi finals.  She was near the front of the line and the kids around her were calmly making their way into the ring.  One overzealous showman came out of nowhere from behind and pushed her way thru the gate, knocking my showman into the fence almost knocking her down, and banging our heifer around in her attempt to be first in. I'm not sure what other casualties there were before she blew passed the three or four ahead of us.    Seems to me like it has become a mad scramble to be the first into the showmanship ring.  I understand why everyone wants to be in the right place but I'm concerned about the lack of respect for other exhibitors - both in covering up and shoving passed them like we experienced.    Lucky for us, my showman was calm and got herself collected and made it into the ring.

Has anyone else noticed that there seems to be  more of this?

Sounds like it was a good week for you!    It was a long hot one that is for sure!

High Noon or Essential Premium Gold are very good show lamb feeds.

We haven't used him a lot but the calves we've had from him have been less than impressive at birth and then at some point they really explode.   I intend to use him more in the future.

Leanbeef..  you are right!  Moser Ranch = good people.     I'd also recommend Hoffmann Simmental in NE KS.     One other one to try would be Peltons.

There are a couple programs in Kansas that have good red simmis.

Has anyone ever done this on purpose and put them in something like a Holstein?

I would think you'd get some interest just by posting on here.

I feel your pain Frostie.    The drought has been extremely hard on the older cows.  They had a tougher time maintaining condition thru the summer and have taken longer to get it back this winter.     Those old girls have sure paid their way around here but with the higher price of cows, cost of feed, shortage of pasture and water, there is a time when they have to go..    We have a pen of them that we are giving some extra feed & TLC.   One of them is a 13 year old cow that's done a good job for us every year but just hasn't been able to come back from last summer, even with extra feed.   I imagine she will go to town.
