The Big Show / Breeding heifers.
« on: June 07, 2020, 08:23:55 AM »
Im trying to write this without bashing on anyone. Im just hoping someone can educate me on the why. Im hoping for a good and honest discussion without the mud flinging. I want to talk about breeding heifer divisions at jackpot shows. The kind Im preferring to is the kind where all breeds and crossbreds compete in the same division. In my mind, usually the champion is flat and a tick frail.
 Most of the time the champion is an angus, simangus, or Simmental. When I look at these champion heifers, I wonder if theyll ever make a competitive show steer. Some might tell me that their place is to produce heifers or bulls. In the beef industry, do we want flat light boned cattle? If so, the champion steer should also be a little bit flat and frail. I think theyre a disconnect between the market steer division and the breeding heifer division. The market steer had a mother to hopefully calved on her own and milked.
Now Im not saying a super clubby market heifer should win a breeding division show but I believe a breeding heifer should have a little shape and bone. Im still waiting on watching a Shorthorn, Maine, Hereford, etc to win a breed show. I watched some good heifers that are just as sound but are still feminine but get dinged because they have a little shape and a little power.
Im looking at as a perspective of a parent and wondering if it will ever be worth dragging a heifer to a show. We just wouldnt make any money on trying to make show steers out of these champion breeding heifers.

The older bull is a Yellow Jacket son out of Dragor Donor 501. The yearling is a son of the older bull. Both bulls are vigorous breeding bulls and are guaranteed. $3000 for the older and $5000 for the younger or lets make a deal. (Im just the messenger. Call Kelly Burch in Casper Wyoming if interested or message me here.) Both are registered Maintainers.

The Big Show / Soundness of bulls
« on: August 07, 2019, 06:27:12 PM »
I think too many bulls especially clubbies are too small and have small feet. Besides a mature photo, I would like to see bulls on the move. Sound enough just isnt good enough.

I can't find the answer by looking it up. has anyone had an experience when a recip showed heat and still be safe bred with the embryo? Don't want to kill a pregnancy if I can help it but I also want to get the recip cow bred asap if the embryo didn't stick.

The Big Show / Darn show heifer!
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:11:07 AM »
Anyone have any ideas on getting a show heifer back on track? She was doing great on her feed but we hauled her to a show in Utah this past weekend. We also opened a new bag of feed when we got back and she won't touch it. I gave her just beet pulp and she'll eat it just fine but add in a little bit of the grain and she turns her nose up to it. Our next show is in 10 days but if she doesn't get going then we'll have to stay home.
