Thanks for your input! I appreciate it. I was wondering about front end structure with some of these bulls but I think I-80 would be a solid choice. Thank you

Cow is a Jimmy the Greek x Ang/Meyer.  Thought about using Salty dog, WMW or Gunsmoke. Curious to see what others may think about different bulls or the ones I have listed. Also attached a picture of her as a calf.

The Big Show / Re: How quick can I AI after calving?
« on: February 24, 2014, 06:00:40 PM »
After calving, cows go through a period termed Postpartum Anestrous Interval.  During this interval cows DO NOT have an estrus cycle and pregnancy is NOT possible.  Estrus will not resume until uterine invocation (repair) is completed by the cow (souly depends on how fast the animal will repair, no human intervention can speed this process up).  Postpartume Anestrous can be less than or equal to 45 days.  After this period of time has occured estrus will resume, most likely it will occur within 30 days depending on the animal.  Hope this info is handy.

The Big Show / Red Angus question
« on: September 20, 2013, 12:49:17 PM »
Have about 20 head of heifers that my dad and I are looking to A.I. back to a red angus bull.  The heifers are 3/4+ red angus influence.  Looking for a bull that is low birth weight, fairly good growth epd.  Also looking for a bull that is going to ad back some look and style.  I have been through the old threads about this and I do not want to use Fat Tony.  I was looking into Perfect Storm and Card Shark.  We also have a purebred red Simmental cow that we are going to breed back to a red angus bull.  I was thinking about using Firestorm and was just wondering what others thoughts were about this bull as well as the other bulls mentioned.  Red cow relocator I know this is your specialty so your advice would be exceptionally great.

Was just curious if there were any shows around Kansas this weekend?  I know it is a major weekend for everyone to be looking for next years project, but i figured there had to be a show somewhere around here.

Oklahomafarmboy-Right now I'm asking $2,500. I lowered the price some because I need to move him.
  He was never fed the proper amounts of grain needed to boost him when he was younger.  I'm gonna get knocked for doing that but poor people have poor ways. My parents didn't have the time to give the attention he needs. I know if he gets on grain he will explode.

The Big Show / Re: Simmental advice
« on: June 17, 2013, 04:30:22 PM »
My choices would have to be Top Gun or Upgrade. I have seen numerous calves out of these bulls that work very well on a cow like yours.  Upgrade X Starpower heifer sold at KSU bull sale this past year for $13,500.

The Big Show / Re: What do ya'll think of this exciting bull calf?
« on: June 07, 2013, 08:30:27 AM »
here is my advice...if you are questioning to leave him a bull, then you need to cut him.  I don't want to come off mean here but I think the cattle industry has enough bulls that people thought would make it and didn't.  Yes he is good looking, but he isn't that stand out, eye catching bull.  In other words I have cows that look like him, I want to fix that not mate to the same thing.

The Big Show / Re: Dying hair
« on: June 02, 2013, 09:19:21 PM »
What I usually do is mix enough die to be applied in 5 minutes.  How much Kleenex sheen really depends on the size of your bottle. Now that said, before u even think about dying your calf they need to be show ring clean, no dirt what so ever. Yes you should rub it in with gloves, let it sit for about 18-20 minutes, DO NOT exceed this limit. You need to be able to apply all of the die within give minutes, otherwise you will have one side ready to wash and the other side still sitting. If you exceed twenty minutes you could burn the hide on the calf. If you are going to add Kleen sheen you need to have about a 1.5:1 ratio of Kleen sheen to dye. U could also add in a pea or nickel size drop of conditioner. This will help keep the skin from drying out. Make sure you apply your dye evenly. If u don't it will not look good at all. You also need to make sure all of the dead hair is out of your calf. Hope this helps

The value aspect shouldn't even be a consideration in the debate.  All opening these plants does is provide a fascilitator for these horse mills to keep pumping foals out in hopes of breeding that great one with no recourse or repercussion for the disposable mindset that afflicts these people. 
  Does this not happen today?  Yes it does and what happens to those horses?  They end up becoming the wild horses that the BLM "takes care of."  This situation is always going to be there.  Everyone wants to hit it big and this is just the out come.  I think  you are a wrong on this one.  Horses are a market just like cattle, sheep, pigs, etc.  They create income for people, whether its raising them for sport or pleasure.  I think with a matter like this emotion needs to be set aside.  Instead, horse slaughter should be looked at as another way of thinning the dinks and creating a more diverse culture and as well as keeping the population under control.  If this was on the other foot, we would see numerous amounts of cattle and would have the same problems.  this is JMO, knock it if you want, tell me that I am wrong, but if you set aside your emotions and think about it....i think I bring to the table some just cause.
