The Big Show / Hereford show genetics
« on: April 09, 2018, 03:24:40 PM »
A friend of mine is planning on setting up a few of his GKB influenced cows so we can breed them AI.
I am running through the different semen providers trying to give him a little help with had he should order.
He is looking to produce a few show heifers for his kids. So we're looking for maternal genetics with good hair and bone.
My research is very limited I like the purple reign cattle, gkb has nice stuff and so does Sullivan's.
Just some bulls that catch my eye. You guys tell me cause I dunno I'm a Shorthorn guy.

Purple Chachi 65Z ET
Sull Mr Harley 5423C ET

                                                       His half Sib out of JPJ
Would like to ask for suggestions on naming our solid red shorthorn bull.
He is out of Jake's Proud Jazz with his dam being a Sonny WHR Bred cow.

We will be using him as a heifer/clean up bull, and plan on taking him to the Louisiana State Fair.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The Big Show / Shorthorn Show Heifer
« on: January 01, 2012, 03:50:30 PM »
Pictures don't do her justice. But here is peak at my sister's show heifer for the 2012 season.

I am building some regression models of the beef industry and i cant seem to find data on historical American Per-Capita beef consumption (# of pounds) or the  average sales price per pound or per head. I will continue to search for data but if you know where i could find this, it would be greatly appreciated. The years i am concentrating on are 1980 to the present.

The Big Show / S&P Downgrades U.S. Credit Rating From AAA
« on: August 05, 2011, 09:41:52 PM »
Ho lee chit were screwed.

Urgent: Credit rating agency Standard & Poor's on Friday downgraded the United States' credit rating for the first time in the history of the ratings.
The credit rating agency said that it is cutting America's top AAA rating by one notch to AA-plus. The credit agency said that it is making the move because the deficit reduction plan passed by Congress on Tuesday did not go far enough to stabilize the country's debt situation.
A source familiar with the discussions said that the Obama administration feels the S&P's analysis contained "deep and fundamental flaws."
S&P said that in addition to the downgrade, it is issuing a negative outlook, meaning that there was a chance it will lower the rating further within the next two years. It said such a downgrade to AA would occur if the agency sees less reductions in spending than Congress and the administration have agreed to make, higher interest rates or new fiscal pressures during this period.
S&P first put the government on notice in April that a downgrade was possible unless Congress and the administration came up with a credible long-term deficit reduction plan and avoided a default on the country's debt.
After months of wrangling and negotiations with the administration, Congress passed this week a debt reduction package that averted a possible default.
In its statement, S&P said that it had changed its view "of the difficulties of bridging the gulf between the political parties" over a credible deficit reduction plan.
S&P said it was now "pessimistic about the capacity of Congress and the administration to be able to leverage their agreement this week into a broader fiscal consolidation plan that stabilizes the government's debt dynamics anytime soon."

The Big Show / Working on the barn
« on: August 05, 2011, 08:41:27 AM »
Got these two heifers that are learning to eat in a tie out situation. They are just now being weaned so they are doing well for only being in about a week. I have to bust up the stalls, the August ritual of digging up the stalls for this years show team. Its back breaking work but someone has to do it. Check out the heifers as they learn to behave themselves at the link provided below. On a lighter note pretty happy we finally got the inter-webs down to the barn, now i never have leave. Hahaha <cowboy>

That was fun, i need to get another webcam.

The Big Show / Grasshopper crop driving me crazy.
« on: July 15, 2011, 05:24:57 PM »
Yep they are every where, Is anyone else having issues with this? What is causing this, i figured the birds would be hear eating up a storm but they are just letting this huge grasshopper crop of mine eat everything they can get on. Def need to make a game plan for next year but i really have no idea how to go about it, or is just something im just going to have to deal with.

The Big Show / Ag Teachers Better today or back in the day?
« on: July 14, 2011, 11:33:27 PM »
I dunno just wanted to see if i could get some feed back. Is it just me or do these people just not give a damn? I know a few Ag teachers here in Texas and there is no way i would let them pick out an animal for my kid much less tell them how to take care of the animal. Most seem to think they are some kind of hot sheit. Hell i went to college didn't take the easy Ag teacher way out, but i can do better by most kids than these wannabes.  Hell they just watched my cattle dominate them and they still have balls to act like they know what they are talking about(good thing im the silent type, because there is no reason say the wrong thing to them as they can be very moody). I especially love those city kid AgTeachers fresh out that took that three hour class on market animal evaluation trying to push kids into taking crappy cattle back to the barn. I walk around barns where i have sold cattle and see trash, hell my neighbor has better commercial cattle than some of the stuff i see in high school show barns. Oh well I sure do miss my old Ag teacher from back in the day, good guy old guy and made it apparent that he would find good cattle for us but was also man enough to say lets go look at all the choices not just the first calf he came up to. Are these new Ag teachers  just lazy,is it lack of cattle education, or is it just a paycheck and they dont care. These are the things i would like to know. Just had to vent. Don't get me wrong there are a few very good ones here in Texas but the majority couldn't scoop the crap in my barn. (thumbsup)
Yea i said it.

Had to tone it down, there are plenty of excellent educators in the state of Texas and i thank them for everything they do for the kids and for the industry. Without the network of Ag teachers im not to sure these cattle shows would exist in their present form. Hope this discussion can give us a better understanding.
