The Big Show / OLD bull semen codes?
« on: July 19, 2012, 03:48:25 PM »
Picked up a bunch of semen today to try and figure out what it is...  Most likely is either old shorthorn, maine, or holstein.  Really hate to have to thaw out a straw to ID it.  Could be as old as the '70s.

94N (AMPS)
SP15 Cadinal?

and other's I haven't begun to figure out yet.

The Big Show / My new bull--- made an oops.

Wasn't expecting this calf- guess it goes to show those talking about genetics don't lie... Two blacks can in fact make a RED>

About 2 weeks ago, we started getting calves sired by the upcoming 2 year old bull we raised and bred exclusively with last year as a baby.  His first calf was born July 12- and he will not be 2 years old until the end of Sept.  He is sired by the Dr. Feelgood bull we bought from Jeff Cornell (feeder duck), and from the best Angus cow on our place.  We call him "Pyromania".  I would guess there will be another 10 or so cows and first calf heifers bred to him yet to calf throughout the fall-- although we sure didn't expect the last two to calve so quickly-- even the vet was wrong!  I have not seen any of these calves in person yet- as they are at my parent's place-- but I'm impressed thus far none the less-- kinda interesting looking calves for them to be less than a day old in the pictures.  I attached his picture taken last Jan- after running 15 cows since turning 10 months old-- obviously!

Anyways, the solid red bull calf is from a Red carrier Angus cow- Beckton Lancer dtr.  and the blue heifer calf is from a purebred Kool daughter.  We've also got another solid black bull calf that I cannot find the picture of right now-- his mother is a grand daughter of OCC Homer.

Misguided, or Misplaced Urbanite?

The Big Show / There once was a bull...................
« on: July 15, 2012, 08:00:48 PM »
named Cedar Curve Thumper-- and he just disappeared.  His sire was TAGUE'S EXPLOSION, who was also used by Brockmueller's. 

Anyone ever hear of these two bulls?

 Speaking of Cedar Curve-- anyone ever own any Cedar Curve cattle?  Anyone ever hear of any other than Farrah or Colleen?

Mark T-- You don't count.

The Big Show / Breeding on ability of the Shorthorn color pattern
« on: July 15, 2012, 05:22:29 PM »
Sitting here, mostly wasting time today in the house instead of outside in the heat-- and I got to wondering---  has there ever been a shorthorn bull breed on only one color?  Figured I'd ask the masses of SP.

Have you ever had a red shorthorn bull produce only red calves, regardless of what color cow he was mated to?  Have you ever had a white bull only produce white calves-- even from 'red' cows?  What about a roan bull- have you ever had a roan bull only produce red calves? white calves? roan calves?

Interesting to think about.  I know that even the strictest red herds- still get roan popup every once in a while- as we all know that sometimes those 'reds' really have a roan hair somewhere.  With the genetics of roan, anything is possible, but has their ever been a bull defy the genetic odds?

Will be interesting to see what the long established shorthorn people of SP have to say?
AJ- you ever get roans from your reds? 
Okie/ Jamie-- how about your pure shorthorns-- ever get anything unusual?
JIT- I know you'll have a story

Southern Ingenuity   

One morning 3 South Carolina good old boys and 3 Yankees were in a ticket line at the Spartanburg train station  heading to Columbia for a big football game.   

The 3 Northerners each bought a ticket and watched as the 3 Southerners bought just one ticket among them. 

"How are the 3 of you going to travel on one 1 ticket?" asked one of the Yankees.   

"Watch and learn" answered one of the boys from the South. 

When the 6 travelers boarded the train, the 3 Yankees sat down, but the 3 Southerners crammed into a bathroom together and closed the door. 

Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around to collect tickets. 

He knocked on the bathroom door and said, "tickets please."  the door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The Conductor took it and moved on. 

The Yankees saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever idea.  Indeed, so clever that they decided to do the same thing on the return trip and save some money. 

That evening after the game when they got to the Columbia train station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip while to their astonishment the 3 Southerners didn't buy even 1 ticket. 

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed Yankees.   

"Watch and learn", answered one of the Southern boys. 

When they boarded the train the 3 Northerners crammed themselves into a bathroom and the 3 Southerners crammed themselves into the other bathroom across from it. 

Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Southerners left their bathroom  and walked quietly over to the Yankee's bathroom.  He knocked on the door and said "ticket please".   

There's just no way on God's green earth to explain how the Yankees won the war...
