The Big Show / Stands alone
« on: November 12, 2014, 07:01:07 PM »
Has anyone used this for their calves? I see competitive edge is using it. Also what is it for, they say it is basically a bunch of supplements combined into one but don't really say what it does specifically.

The Big Show / help with feed
« on: December 15, 2012, 04:34:03 PM »
So last year, i started my steers out on a purina show ration and a couple months in it started getting really expensive, about $17 a bag. When that happened i switched them onto straight cracked corn with protein pellet (22%) and cotton seed hulls mixed in. This year i would like to keep my calves on that feed to keep costs down but i would like to add some other stuff to it like oats and/or barley. what is a good ratio per ton of corn/oats/barley? ive looked into AAOK's feed ration but not all the ingredients for it are available to me here. feel free to PM me and thanks for any help! also it needs to be safe for steers and heifers.

The Big Show / Wash rack
« on: November 26, 2012, 08:48:29 PM »
I'm starting my next little project around the farm, a wash rack! It's going to be an outdoor one because I don't have room in my barn. Ive done some searches on here and as of now it will be about 12 x 12, concrete of course (with rubber mats), posts 3 feet back and 3 apart. If anyone has any ideas, advice or even pictures, any help is appreciated! Thanks!

The Big Show / clippers??
« on: September 23, 2012, 06:55:04 PM »
I need to buy a new pair of clippers and i'm just wondering what kind you fellow planeteers think I should get. The previous pair i had was the Andis AGP Super 2-Speed Clipper and they just died this afternoon >:( the kinds i am looking at now are the Andis Excel 5 Speed Clipper and the Andis AGCL Lightspeed Clipper. Just looking for pros and cons for each, what you like about them, etc. I'm also open to any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

The Big Show / Getting started?
« on: February 05, 2012, 08:32:29 PM »
I was considering buying a heifer this year, but now I am thinking maybe embryo transplant. I have a few questions about it. How much does it cost to get a frozen embryo transplanted into a recip cow? Can embryos be stored in a regular semen tank? What is the process from frozen to inserted into cow? Not too sure about this, but it was just an idea. Any help is greatly appreciated also any thoughts or opinions on this.

The Big Show / Cattle senses
« on: January 07, 2012, 09:49:08 PM »
After reading ZNT's post about safety with cattle, I remembered the question I kept thing of. i watched the movie Temple Grandin several times and I'm still amazed how she never got hurt when laying on the ground in the middle of the herd. I was wondering if maybe the cattle would have been able to sense that she was autistic or if it was just because she was calf that they were. Just looking for other people's thoughts on this.
