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.

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??

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.

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?

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

The Big Show / Flushing options??

Have a cow that needs frame bone and body. She is a clubby bred cow but I want to take her back to take her back to a maternal bull (thinking Simmental and Charolais) and looking for suggestions. Have thought of chopper and firewater but don't think there bring enough body to the table. She is good hopped and good fronted and really stout and hairy and thf. Thanks

The Big Show / Simmental bull on Commercial Angus Heifers
« on: December 15, 2013, 10:42:43 AM »
I've read some threads on here about Simmental calving ease bulls but I wasn't sure if these were results from crossing with Simmental heifer or any heifers. I have about 50 mostly commercial angus heifer I want to breed to a Simmental bull. All of the heifers we under 80 lbs at birth and unassisted.

The bulls I'm interested in are Built Right, In Dew Time, Goldmine, and Ranch Hand. Again, I'm curious how these bulls would work on commercial angus heifers, Thanks in Advance

The Big Show / Swine help, Beginner needs help

This is a repost from the Swine Chat, I've noticed there isn't a lot of replies on the Swine Chat side so if any of you have any suggestions let me know.

I have convinced my little brother to show pigs at the country fair which is in the first week in july. I come from a cattle background and have no knowledge of pigs. When am I suppose to buy the pigs, what do I feed them, what daily care do they need? Any thing will help, Thanks

The Big Show / screwing up a calfs hair cycle
« on: August 06, 2013, 12:13:29 PM »
If you put a 4-6 month old calf in a cooler before sale does it somehow screw up there heir cycle? Ive only heard one person tell me this but I'm wondering if there's any truth to it.

The Big Show / Heat Wave's Dam
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:30:20 AM »
I seen on executive sires blog that Heat Waves dam was recently flushed which obviously means she's alive and well, I'm assuming she would have to be around 16 years old since Heat Wave was a 2000 model. Just wondering if anyone has a picture of her or thoughts on the fact that a 16 year old club calf cow is still producing eggs when it seems that most clubbie cows don't see that age to often.

The Big Show / Craziest breeding decisions
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:24:10 PM »
I don't know if this has been a topic on here and I wouldn't even know what to search, but I sometimes see in catalogs and posts that people have bred a heifer to a bull like monopoly or some clubby bull (big BW bull) and got away with it so I'm just wondering what some people have bred to heifers or even cows and looking back are saying, "dang I got lucky there" or maybe it didn't go good.

I obviously don't plan on trying anything that will be posted I'm just curious
