The Big Show / What would you flush her too?
« on: June 08, 2014, 08:30:16 PM »
 The Cow (P43026433) is sired by Star Bright Future and was named Reserve Grand Champion Heifer at NAILE a few years back. Her past calves who were sired by About Time and are very impressive and have done very well in the show rings, however we wanted to try something different and flushed her to Ribeye 88X. He is the hottest bull in the country and his calves are in extremely high demand. He produced the 600,000, two time national champion MILES MCKEE. We are extremely excited about those eggs and expect great things to come of them (limited amount of those eggs are for sale) ,but we are looking to flush her to a few different bulls. What are some bulls you would try flushing her to? Below is a picture of the cow and two of her heifers sired by About Time 743.

The Big Show / Opinions? Hereford Show Heifer
« on: February 04, 2014, 07:02:54 PM »
This is my show heifer for the 2013-2014 season. She is sired by Manhattan and the famous Bailey 545 cow of Dan Sullivans, she is a full sib to the reserve grand champion heifer at the 2012 Hereford junior nationals, the reserve supreme heifer at Houston, and the champion Hereford steer at the 2012 Illinois Beef Expo. she is a maternal sib to many national champions including the grand champion Hereford steer at the Junior nationals in 2012, the reserve grand champion steer in 2013, and many others! we are really excited about her future in our program. she has already been named champion heifer at multiple jack pot shows this past fall. her DOB is April 30, 2013. Any thoughts and opinions and advice on this heifer are welcome!

(see her this coming Weekend in Princeton to begin the 2014 show season!)

The Big Show / Best Shorthorn Bull for the Job
« on: February 04, 2014, 05:27:32 PM »
I have two cows id like to breed to shorthorn bulls. Both cows are sound hand have had 1 calf.

Cow number 1 is out of heatwave and a friction cow. she is real cool fronted, wide, and pretty stout but could use a little more depth of body and a more maternal look to her.

Cow number 2 is half angus half Maine. she is more angus looking that the other. I would like to breed her to something freak fronted, shag haired, Heavy Boned and really wide.

Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

The Big Show / calf dead.
« on: April 03, 2012, 03:16:36 PM »
i had a calf born a couple weeks ago and it was out of a first calf heifer. we had to pull him. when he came out it appeared as if his head may have been swollen. we gave him some colostrum and eventually he started to nurse and we thought everything would be fine unlike most calves he had a big belly. we let him out into the pasture with the rest of the calves like 5 days ago went out yesterday around noon and he looked bloated but not to bad.. later on we went out to check on the calves and we was bloated.  we gave him medicine and put a hose down his throat but it didnt help. the next morning he was dead. any idea what happened to cause him to bloat? we have never had a calf not on creep and getting just a little milk bloat before.
