The Big Show / Graft/Bottle Calves
« on: April 20, 2016, 03:05:03 PM »
I lost two calves and acquired two graft calves. The guy I got them from said I could pay him now or when the calves sell. He said just whatever the market price would be. My question is what would the market price be for a graft calf? they were 80-120 lbs roughly.  Or where could I find that information. I tried looking at my local livestock auctions but they don't run things through that small.


The Big Show / Shorthorn for commercial use
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:58:38 PM »
I haven't been able to find a good commercial producer forum yet or one that has this forums numbers so I thought I would post this here.

I am graduating college soon and am going to work on my uncles ranch he runs Maine/Angus cross. Eventually I will be able to have 20 cows (to start). Whether i buy heifers/cows or a mix of both I haven't decided.

I have been thinking about buying angus and crossing them with shorthorn. I'll keep replacement heifers until I have all F1 cross cows. I'll be using A.I. On my cows. I'll breed my F1 cows back to angus. I'm trying to get really good cows with great udders and that flesh easy because of where we run our cows.

I'm wondering if anyone on this forum is doing something similar and what their results have been or just is shorthorn viable for commercial cow making?
