We got another Point Taken: a heifer today. I really like his calves! They are thick!

we had a huge naughty pine calf today, probably 140lbs, 12 days late. he fell in the creek and we saved him. don't know if he'll make it through the night. he's painted up pretty good though.
The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

71#'s Northern Improvement Heifer calf out of a first calf heifer 3C Macho x WMW/Angus dam.
Not very good pics. She is about 18 hours old in the pics. Has a pretty distinct number7 on her forehead.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Is that Bojo a little straight?  Do you have anymore of them?  Was curious on how they looked?

It's just the picture, he has plenty of flex to his legs. This is the only one we have. He has loads of muscle, it will be interesting to see him fill out. He is pretty leggy also but that's probably because of his mom.

I had a Sunseeker first calf heifer calve 4 days ago. The calf is a heifer out of Silverias El Capitan and weighed about 65 pounds. My problem is the Sunseeker heifer seems to have very little milk. Her udder is wrinkled in the back suggesting size for expansion and her teats are normal size. The milk just seems to never have come in. The calf nurses, gets milk on its nose and is running around full of energy. My question is, "Is this typical of Sunseekers?" The dam of the Sunseeker heifer has a tremendous amount of milk. Any info would be appreciated.

We have a Sunseeker/Charolais heifer that calved last year, her bag was almost non-existant, and had the wrinkled look that you talked about. She never seemed to get a bigger bag, but the calf seemed to get along just fine and she weaned him at 550 pounds with no creep, he was green but more than acceptable at our place for a first-calf heifer. Hope this helps you out.

He is still alive and doing better by the day.  <beer>

That makes me feel better about her. The calf seems to be getting all the milk she wants. I really appreciate your reply.

So far kinda boring. I have a Shiver x Sun Seeker bull that is thick but has no length of body and a Paddy Omally bull that looks better than his full brother did last year. Anyone else have any Shiver calves on the ground?

Point Taken bull calf born yesterday unassisted. Has more color than I expected!

I bet you saw them white legs and wondered when the white was going to stop.
