Goat/Lamb Chat / Making money with commercial goat herd?
« on: July 29, 2019, 09:55:02 AM »
Located in the Midwest.

Looking at buying a small acreage with 5 acres of pasture. Wondering if there is any money to be make with commercial goats on a smaller scale? Any tips to get started, like breeds or different feed types? Thanks in advance.

The Big Show / Re: Opinions on flushing a 20 year old cow
« on: October 20, 2014, 12:25:32 PM »
If she has proven herself to you through her previous calves, I would give it a try. If she still cycles regularly you could still get a somewhat decent flush out of her, sometimes with those old cows you never know when they're going to start going down hill so if you want to flush her I wouldn't wait any longer.

Some friends of mine just put in a new wash rack, they spaced there bars every 24 inches in between pipes for calves then the space from that to the next set of bars in 29 inches I believe. That was they can put calves in the 24 inch whole but if they need to clip fat steers they can still put them in the 29 inch holes (I think those measurements are correct) but you get the picture. I hope I explained that good enough. I thought it was a great idea.

Need a steer transported from Plainsville, IN to anywhwere near Nerbaska, will pay for trucking, message me if you have anything

My little brother wants to take a shorthorn steer to the junior national show next year in Grand Island. I looked at Sullivan's club calf sale last year thinking they would have some but I didn't see any. Thinking more of a purebred but open to plus's too. Anyone have any other suggestions to go look??

Has it been announced where the simmental or angus will be at in 2015?

Took some bulls to Voglers the other day to get collected.

Figured while I was there I would take a look at the new clubby bulls since I've never had the chance of seeing any of them in person.

Now I've read on here about how short they are and I've always known they were short but I didn't realize they were that short. They almost looked like a weaned calf in the fall, just fatter and extremely hairy. It's almost one of those you have to see to believe things to really understand how short they are.

On another note if I had to judge them, I would say my favorites were the MAB clones and Italian Stallion. I didn't really get to see them walk out so couldn't see how sound they were.

Not talking bad about clubbies but it was just an eye opener for me and I wanted to share my experience.

Recently flushed with Monopoly 4 semen and got 12 good eggs, which is about how many that cow usually flushes so I guess I didn't notice a difference

just had a I Da Man heifer out of an older 3D cow around 90 lbs. Only a few days old but only think I would knock her on now is she doesn't have massive hair but other than that she's stout and has some bone to her. Like I said only a couple days old, time will tell

The Big Show / Wet distillers as creep feed, any try it?
« on: March 12, 2014, 07:42:42 PM »
Was thinking of using wet distillers as creep feed this summer on a small group of calves. Have easy access to plenty of it and creep feed from the feed store is a little pricey. Would have to feed everyday since there would be no way to limit them on it. Am going to talk to our nutritionist about it to see what he thinks but wanted to see if anyone on here has ever tried it before and if so what the results were?

I think I like the looks of the full brother better compared to the original, looks more functional but like you said, they probably won't be called out of the full brother

Does anyone have calves out of him yet? Looks like a nice option to use in heifers. He's 3 this year, figured maybe someone had some opinions of him
