The BISS program is owned by Jordan Buba, Spruce Grove, Alberta. Jordan only has a few Shorthorns but she has a pile of cattle knowledge from working with her families Lewis Farms breeding herd of about 1000 cows. Lewis Farms has been a world leader in Simmental genetics and they also have some Angus and Limo females. Their annual bull sale usually offers 300- 400 bulls and it is one of the great sales every year. I think the Shorthorn breed is fortunate to have a young lady like Jordan involved and she has already proven that she knows how to get it done.

If you don't like the bull, look the other way.  If you don't like the breed, use another breed.  I am just a youngster, but always thought...if you want maternal, use angus, if you want pounds, use char or simmy genetics, etc.  No reason to bash.  The bull comes from a proven program if I've ever seen one.  Most people bashing others program/cattle, etc. are those who just sit in the stands anyhow.  I have done it myself.  The truth is, if you want it...go get it yourself.  You never know what it takes until you have been there yourself!!!

The Big Show / HELP!! How to remove blu-kote.
« on: November 20, 2014, 11:17:49 AM »
I pulled a stupid move yesterday and doused a white/roan heifer in blu-kote to help with ringworm.  We have a show in a week.  Doesn't the colour stick quite well?
How can I get this out?  The only good thing about this is it is non show side.

Ditto!  I would like to know as well.  Also, would like to know of a good one-stop-shop to get this all.  Somewhere in North Dakota?

Thanks!  I had one more come around and bred her this morning.  When should the other 3 "non-responders" come around again? 
Pulled those CIDR'S and gave estrumate on Monday (the 16th).  21 days from Monday I assume?

I have a group of 8 cows I CIDR'd.  Pulled CIDR's on Monday night (about 84 hrs ago).  Had 4 come in heat and bred them already.
I am not really crunched for time so am wondering if I should time breed them today and give Cystorelin, or just wait for the others to come in the next few days and breed on real heats?

Thank You all!
The cow is a commercial RAx old 4-H heifer that did very well at for me.  She probably has a 1/4 limi in her, but is otherwise all home raised Red Angus with no fancy names.  She is a long, thick, no holes cow.  Deep ribbed and flanked.
I have attached a few pictures of the cow.  1st one is of her the day she calved.  2nd is her on the left and on the right would be a maternal sib by SULL Salute (4 year old cow in production) to the Blindside bull calf.  She enjoyed the feed this winter a bit much.  Fat is sexy when it comes to cows  (clapping).
We have 5 Blindsides and they are all growing out well so far, although young yet.  Only 1 is smaller framed, but that comes from the cow for sure.

What do you think?  He is an April calf out of Blindside.  We are real excited about him.  Stout as heck, long bodied, thick, big boned, and backed by a great Mama.

This might be hijacking the thread but I have noticed a few things too.  In Canada we have terrible selection when it comes to American clubby bulls, and this has me quite frustrated to begin with.  Then, I ask what the bull has to offer, and 9 times out of 10 they say "bone, hair, thickness".  Um??  Ok.  Doesnt that sort of apply to the entire clubby industry?!  Nobody suggest anything other than bone/hair, etc.  If you ask what type of cows they work on you MIGHT get more breed specific, but not phenotype specific.  Often you will just get "works well on Heatwave daughters' or something of the sort.
This clubby deal has me wondering how much clubby people actually know about functional cattle?!?! 
Wait...maybe I just asked a silly question!

We have 3 working females out of Salute and I would definitely not throw them to the ground.  They all came under 90 pounds as babies from RA cows.  As 3/4 year old cows they all have clubby calves on them now from Blindside and Salty Dog and they are doing great.  They have very good udders, milk well, have lots of grow, and great personalities.  I wouldnt throw them out.  We have a Facebook page with pictures of the Salute cows, and their clubby calves if you are interested in having a look. https://www.facebook.com/LongwayRanch.

Have a look through our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/LongwayRanch.  We are Canadian, and have a cow base of Red Angus x Shorthorn cows bred to clubby bulls.  Look us up and let me know what you all think!  We have calves from Blindside, and Salty Dog this spring arriving daily ;)

Well done to all parties involved (especially the Aussie partners!). He's certainly an eye catcher and from what I hear, a pretty mobile individual with that all-important "sire appeal".
I'd love to see this bull slicked/wet, anyone got any pics without the hair?

I think what you see is what you get with this guy.  He does not have a lot of extra fluff.  Coming from the outfit he does, you can bet they know how to raise bulls!

I thought Rodgers black bull had a lot of future because of his length combined with a little grow. He was smooth with good wool hair

Does anybody have any more photos of this bull.  I really fell in love with his look just from his promo picture.  What does everyone else think of him...for those who could not make it to actually see the bulls.
