The Big Show / pasture check
« on: June 28, 2017, 11:50:30 AM »
 This heifer calf caught my eye the other day when checking a remote pasture she is about 2 1/2 mo.old.She has an inbreeding coeficient of 39.18.Her dam,grandam, great grandam and great great grandam are still in active production.Her dams heifer from last year is being bred this spring so the potential is there for 5 consecutive generations still in active production.This heifer also represents the 13th generation of this cow family since the foundation female for this line was purchased.Every herd bull that made it to senior sire status in our herd the last 44 years appears at least once in her extended pedigree except for one but his sire and dam are well represented in her ancestry.

The Big Show / How to Make a Profit
« on: July 22, 2013, 04:13:17 PM »
 Interesting reading in the July issue of beef magazine.The article summarized cow costs for the last year based on records kept on a substantial number of herds in North Dakota.These records had been kept for 18 years and the average herd size was 150 cows.
 A couple standouts were first there is little correlation between herd profit and high weaning weights.Second was that replacement costs for 2012 were 38% of the total annual cost per cow and this in a year when keeping replacements was not a high priority for most producers.
Could the day be approaching when cattlemen ask how many pounds/dollar input instead of what was his weaning weight,or begin to question the seedstock producer who replaces 25% plus of his herd every year or has an average age cowherd of 4 years or has built his herd on embryo producers instead of live calf producers.
 Also another article in the magazine stated that 80% of the cows in this country are in herds of 150 or more head.
