Liberals are trying to legislate us into their ideal world where we are all free, smoke dope, and hopefully money, and food, falls out of the sky!
I don't feel these guys have any idea of what is needed to feed the world and, unfortunately, they have managed to get the liberal media on their bandwagon.
I deal with the irrational misconceptions about farming from my teenage daughter fairly regularly, none of the instigators actually have the facts. We need to market ourselves better!

Sort of obvious, but using the same logic, no restrictions on abortion.

They value animal life over human.

If passed, it will be illegal to flush, palpate or ai in Colorado because it violates a cows reproductive tracts. Insanity!

This is just more vegan / enviro harassment.  They got the wolf introduction by ballot initiative so they can harass agriculture, especially on the West Slope and in the mountain valleys.

Ag in Colorado is vastly outnumbered by the urban masses, but there are good animal protein customers in the urban areas and ag needs to reach out to find all the friends it can.  The ballot initiative as I understand it is somewhat a protracted process where the pushers of it have to first collect a certain number of signatures.  The producer organizations are taking it seriously, are on it and no one is ignoring it, but there are limited things they can do to stop the collection of signatures except work on engaging the public and getting out front of the PR campaign.

Keith Lauer's cattle are functional.  Besides having at least 2 KL cattle in our herd bull's pedigree, we have Gauge (bred by Keith) and Teddy daughters.  Use KL genetics if you want your herd to stand the test of time.

Everyone better check out the proposed Protect Animals From Unnecessary Suffering and Exploitation legislation in Colorado.  Among other things, it will prevent the slaughter of animals until they have reached a certain percentage of their expected life span.  According to the bill, the expected lifespan of a cow is 20 years, a chicken 8 years, etc.  I believe the article said they need 124,000 signatures to put the rule on the ballot.  This type of thing is never ending, proposed by folks who have absolutely no knowledge of agriculture.  We need to stay aware and the production associations we pay money to need to combat these types of actions.

Wanted to bump this thread to ask those of you out there who have WS A Step Up calves in your herds, how do they do as cows? I've had a couple females that I wasn't incredibly impressed with their milk production, wanted to see if that was just my bad luck, or if it had been seen in other herds as well.

Any info you care to share is very appreciated!
