The Big Show / Cane code help needed AN713
« on: December 09, 2012, 09:26:36 AM »
Mysteriously showed up in dad's tank.  We have no idea what is.

Both are ABS bulls.  Still looking for Red Outcrosses.  Rushmore is pretty young so I am guessing not much there.

The Big Show / Any thoughts on Red Simmental Bulls out there
« on: October 11, 2012, 11:53:07 AM »
Would prefer a Dream On Outcross.

Other than the Gunner/ Top Gun lines are there any good onese out there?  Also what do you think of either Gunner or Top Gun calves?

I of course like Mack but would prefer not to pay $200 on anything completely unproven at this point.


Cattle For Sale / ***Sold*** Bred Simmental Heifer
« on: September 27, 2011, 12:10:13 PM »
GLZ APPLE PIE X001 is a black February 5th, 2010 heifer.  She is a Trademark daughter out of an In Dew Time cow (that is still producing in our herd).  She is vet confirmed bred to Grandmaster.  She was bred on June 12th so she is expecting a March 21 calf.  She has had no exposure to any bulls and settled on the first AI breeding.  She is halter broke, and very gentle.  She has an extremely solid set of EPD's including a 9.4 CE, a -2.4 BW, and a 113 API.  If you would like to look at all of her EPD's and her pedigreee, her ASA # is 2528752.

I hope to have some pictures this weekend if the weather holds and the last hay gets put up.

We are located in SW Illinois 25 miles south of St. Louis.  I am asking $1750 for her.

Please send me a message if you have any other questions about her or if you would like me to call you.



The Big Show / Breed early or late.
« on: July 31, 2011, 07:54:17 PM »
So I have a 4 year old cow that just came into standing heat literally 10 minutes ago.  (7:30 PM)

Due to work tomorrow I can either breed her at 6 in the morning (not quite 12 hours), or 5 in the evening at the earliest.

I have always been under the thought process of if I am going to error, I want to error on the late side of things.

So would you breed her in the morning (10 1/2 hours), or in the evening (21 1/2 hours)

This calf was born this morning.  At 6 am it was up and nursing.  Went to work.  I went out at 5 pm tonight to tag and weigh it and found this.

Found nothing else.  No traces of blood or anything.  Just the bottom half of a calf.

The Big Show / Any good place to order banners?
« on: June 09, 2011, 08:49:01 AM »
We order our trophies for our local fair from a particular company.  Last year we asked them to do 3 banners for supreme champions and they came out pretty poor.  They have told us they probably won't be able to improve on that as it is not their specialty.  Not looking for anything super advanced, just looking to order a few nice banners.  Any recs?

The Big Show / Off Topic: Skid Steer Tires
« on: April 06, 2011, 08:17:44 AM »
Just bought a used skidsteer that needs new tires.  I have been pricing tires for the last two days over the phone.  Is it possible to get by with 8 ply, or do they pretty much  have to be 12 ply?  Found a guy that has 8 ply tires of the same brand as another that has 12 ply at about $300 cheaper.

The Big Show / 10 day old calf bloated
« on: March 06, 2011, 06:34:43 PM »
You move him around he has gas coming out of both ends, but wants to lay down.  He was running around earlier today. 

Any quick suggestions?

Mineral oil?  Therabloat?  If so much for a 10 day old calf.

The Big Show / Clipping unbroke calves
« on: January 24, 2011, 03:22:48 PM »
What is the best method for clipping calves that are not yet halter broke.  I ask this because I see so many young calves on here that are clipped out and I have never tried to clip on one that I couldn't at least move a little on a halter.

Do you use a grooming chute, or make due with a squeeze chute.  Any other tips on doing it?

Just curious.

The Big Show / Thoughts on lack of heat
« on: December 10, 2010, 04:23:22 PM »
So I have asked many people this questions, and noone has really any solid answers for me.

My dad has a small group of Angus cows.  Nice enough cows, they do what he wants them for.  For years he has had me or the brother in law AI them, then he turns the bull out on them pretty normal stuff.

The thing that is puzzling is this group of cows absolutely does not show any signs of heat.  He has early fall calvers every year, and we usually sync the cows to breed back end of Novermber early December.  The cows do not show any natural heat in between their September calving, and their Nov/Dec breeding.  They also do not show heat after synchronization either.  (7-day CIDR protocol)  We breed on a timed AI after pulling the CIDR, and breed to about 65-70% range on timed AI.  The clean-up bull usually gets the rest 3 weeks later.  (they obviously stand for the clean-up bull).  So there is no real reproductive problems, just heat detection problems.

It isn't for a lack of checking either.  He constantly checks on them, and when synched they are checked many times a day, and through the night.  However nothing.

Nutrition shouldn't be an issue unless there is something we aren't thinking of.

The replacement heifers are a different story.  They show great heats on a sync program, however as soon as the move into the herd after calving for the first time the strong heats are gone.

I have no problems with my own cows/heifers and they are virtually on the same program 12 miles down the road.

Any thoughts?

Also will he throw a lot of white?

Cattle For Sale / Yearling Simmental Bull
« on: November 28, 2010, 04:15:09 PM »
I have for sale a solid black yearling Simmental bull for sale. He was born October 11, 2009. He is a son of the Simmental Bull Built Right out of a BOZ Redcoat cow. His registration number with the American Simmental Association is 2527407.

His actual birth weight was 68 pounds with an adjusted weaning weight of 613 pounds (actual 640). His EPDs include a calving ease number of 7.9 and a birth weight EPD of -2.0.

I just got him back from an efficiency feed test where he did great. While there he had and average daily gain of 4.15 pounds per day. The efficiency test also measured a factor known as RFI or residual feed intake. This factor measures feed efficiency.  The bull that I am selling had a fantastic RFI of -1.85.

He has been semen tested with semen results being classified as very good.  He is current on his vaccinations, and has been tested negative for BVD. He is also negative for all known genetic defects based off of parentage.

I have more pictures available if interested.  Located in Illinois, near St. Louis, MO.


Cattle For Sale / Green Springs Bull Test Sale: November 21, 1:00 PM
« on: November 09, 2010, 03:09:01 PM »
Green Springs Performance and Efficiency Tested Bull Sale is November 21, 2010 at 1 PM at the Mo-Kan Livestock Facility near Passaic, MO.

This is an opportunity to purchase performance and efficiency tested bulls from the most recent Green Springs Bull Test.  Many registered  breeds are represented including Angus, Simmental, SimAngus, Red Angus, Polled Hereford, Limousin, Lim-Flex, Gelbvieh, Beefmaster, and Braunvieh.  There were over 200 bulls tested and they are selling the top 84.

The test measures RFI or residual feed intake.  This number represents the amount of feed (greater or less) that a bull on the tests eats compared to bulls of the same size and gaining at the same rate that they are.  A negative RFI number represents a more efficient calf.  Feed efficiency is moderately heritable running along the range of 35-40%.  Therefore progress through genetic selection can save you large costs in feed in future offspring.

I am selling lot #80 GLZ Victor W906.  He is a purebred Simmental.  He is a Built Right son out of a BOZ Redcoat x 600U cow.  He had an ADG of 4.15 on test and one of the best RFI numbers at -1.85.

If you have any questions about this bull or anything else I can help you please be sure to send me a message.


Cattle For Sale / Four bred Simmental Heifers
« on: October 03, 2010, 08:55:04 PM »
I have for sale four bred Simmental heifers. The heifers were pregnancy checked by our veterinarian on Monday September 27th and confirmed all four of them to be bred. The four heifers were all AI bred, and have never been exposed to a bull. All four were bred to calving ease Simmental bulls. All four heifers are registered with the American Simmental Association.

1. Purebred heifer - ASA# 2479688. This heifer is a Dream On daughter out of a Waltons Jewler (RW Bomber son) cow. She is bred to Trademark for a February 28, 2011 calf.

2. Purebred heifer - ASA# 2479687. This heifer is a Triple C Invasion daughter out of a Triple C El Poderosa Rey cow. She is bred to the Lazy H bull Pathfinder for a March 16, 2011 calf

3. Purebred heifer- ASA# 2479689. This heifer is a Triple C Invasion daughter out of a Mr. Momentum cow. She is bred to the Select Sires bull Grandmaster for a March 16, 2011 calf.

4. 3/4 Simmental heifer - ASA# 2479686. This heifer is a Triple C Invastion daughter out of 1/2 blood Simmental / Angus cow by Three Tree's Prime Cut. She is bred to Grandmaster as well for a March 16, 2011 calf. For those not familiar with the Simmental Assocation her calf out of the purebred bull Grandmaster will be able to be registered as a purebred.

All four of the heifers are halter broke with the exception of the 2nd heifer listed. She is tie broke as she doesn't lead very well on halter. They have all been on halter many times however have never been shown.

I am hoping to get some better pictures next weekend.  I took a some in the pasture today and the close up one in the corner of the pasture.

Each of the four heifers will make excellent cows. Prices on the heifers range from $1500-$2000. Please reply if you have any questions about these cattle. I am located in Southwest Illinois, 25 miles from St. Louis.
