The Big Show / Re: Outsider and perfection?
« on: October 05, 2021, 09:24:23 PM »
I guess it depends on what major breeders you have in mind. I agree with both of the comments above. The big boys aren't going to dabble until the bulls have enough proven results. They will let everyone else take the risk and they will keep making the same genetics that work for them.

Look at what Cates is doing. They bought Boardwalk and used him for a while. Now they are dabbling in the PVF and JSF scene for outcross bulls. All the while still using Solution and HC lines. The last FSF bull I can remember Cates using was Cornerstone and that wasn't a huge success. That said I do think Perfection is a lot better. WHR just bought Easy Rider and they are still using Waco, Low Rider, Bloodstone, etc. As long as those matings still work they are going to keep using them. If you want to see Perfection or The Outsider on a specific cow line, then your best bet is to buy a cow from that cow family and use The Outsider and Perfection on them.

Essentially, make what you want to see. Take the risk and if it works big copying will be the biggest form of flattery.

The Big Show / Re: Shorthorn/Shorthorn + Bull Recommendations

That bull of Compton's looks good! I'd consider him for the cows talked about. Like said earlier, I wouldn't worry about DS as much unless PHA is in play. There are breeders that have bred DS on DS on DS and still been able to sell calves. The Outsider is a bull I'd consider. Evolution is a little pricey but he could work as well. Stacy Lewis may have some bulls that fit the mold you are looking for as well. Mark has forgot more about shorthorns than I will probably ever know. His ideas will have merit

What are you wanting the offspring of your cows to do? I assume you are trying to raise show stock. Without having pictures or much to go on from the cows pedigrees it's kind of tough to say. What is your end goal? What are you ideally wanting to raise? A little more context may be helpful in suggesting bull decisions.

The Big Show / Re: Best Clubby Bulls for Charolais Cow
« on: December 24, 2020, 12:27:13 AM »
Monopoly cross on Chars has been documented and it works. Does anyone think Monopoly's Angus background has a sizeable impact to why this mating works? I think it's an interesting thinking piece that I wanted to throw out. The reason why I say that is that if Monopoly's Angus background has a sizeable contribution to the effectiveness of the mating then, in theory, other club bulls with this background could be in play. Just an interesting thought worth discussing

Thank you Gargan! I think her best days are ahead of her. If you like her there then you should see her on the move. Big footed and sound as a cat

The Big Show / Hot Commodity Heifer For Sale
« on: November 07, 2020, 08:27:32 PM »
I've got a Hot Commodity heifer for sale that I think is very interesting. This heifer goes back to JA Dazzling Naomi which some of you know as a daughter of Cedar Curve Colleen. This heifers grand dam is a half sib to CYT June Flower 9107. This heifer is sleek fronted, deep bodied, and sound. She is flexible and fluid on the move! I think this heifer make a really cool show heifer next spring but ultimately a really cool breeding piece. I tried to post a video but apparently the file is to big.Let me know what y'all think and if you would like a video.

Thanks!

I'm with you CRS. I didn't know about the Dominant Follicle Removal either. I've heard of some good cows that wouldn't flush as well and I would love to see if this was the problem. I also thought it was interesting how many cows he had data on in regards to heat detection dating back to the late 90's and early 2000's I believe. I've been guilty of not putting the semen in early enough. Overall, great episode imo.

I know some people have had good luck crossing the JPJ with Monopoly. I saw some Red Rocky calves the other day and they sure are stout. I think that would be an interesting option for a Texas Shorthorn steer

I thought it may be a Texas Shorthorn deal but I figured I would ask haha. Reason why I asked is Idk if there was any JPJ already in the genetic line. Outsider is a great option and Mark would know better than me but what about Red Rocky?

I haven't heard much about Hawkeye tbh. What's the shorthorn side of the cow?

Currently my favorite podcast! I've learned a lot from this podcast and I thought the Maine episode was particularly interesting as well.

I am going to try to attach an excel spreadsheet of a nutrient calculator that I use. I got it from the University of Kentucky but can't seem to find it online right now.

If there is something that you feed or have available to feed like a supplement, that isn't on the spreadsheet then you can manual put in the item. Go to the tab at the bottom of the page that says "Feed Ingredients" and click on it. Put in the information of the item and the nutrition values. Now when you click on the "Calculation Sheet" tab your information will auto fill in the when you choose the desired ingredient. I put the information for Calf Manna this way and it worked like a charm. Let me know if the attachment doesn't work for you.

The old Grand Slam bull!! I remember seeing some pretty good calves out of him for the times. His BW EPD through the Hereford Association is +7.2 and CED is -12.1 so take that as you may Mark. Would be interesting so how that bull would work today.

Today, Purdue announced that County Fairs in Indiana in July are a go. Hoping the second wave that will probably hit in late June/ early July doesn't cancel the Indiana State Fair.

The Big Show / Re: "Hype Man" for a sale.
« on: May 10, 2020, 05:46:29 PM »
I think it really depends. When you say "hype man" is this in specific reference to the rep in the block or any of the ringman? As for the speeches, any speech that takes place when bidding is occurring is counterproductive. If the auctioneer has to stall between bids or struggles to get one started then I think the speeches can work even if the speeches aren't great. If the auctioneer and staff are able to jump start the momentum after the speech then the speech was productive even if the meaning of the words were not. I hope that makes sense.
