We've got a TH About Time daughter out of a Indian Outlaw x Angus cow. She's nearly perfect Hereford marked. After we get her first calf out of her next April, I want to breed her to a Hereford clubby bull to get a Herf classifying calf. Any suggestions? I'm out of the loop on this clubby thing and my kids are starting to get real wound up about showing so dad better get it in gear. Sorry I don't have a picture of the heifer or I'd post it. She's moderate framed, wide, decent rib shape and gentle as a dead dog.

Howdy folks!
After a long hiatus, I'm back! The operation has changed some in the last couple years. 2012 was just plain bad. We had dang little rain, 45 days straight of 100+ degree temps and lost over 2000 acres in a major fire. Made it through it though and after 30 days of rehab that fall, I came home better than ever! Lol. We thinned the herd in the spring of 2013 due to things still being extremely dry and sent a potload of registered pairs to JT Moreland Farms in Ohio. It began raining in June of 2013 and herd rebuilding began. We calved over 350 cows this year primarily in April, few in May. About 70 registered Shorthorn cows, 180 Angus and 100 commercial Angus and various crossbred cows. We have changed our breeding program to where only the very best purebred females get bred for purebred calves. Most of the Shorthorn cows are being mated to Leachman red Stabilizers and a few to Leachman Red Angus. Half the Angus cows are being bred Shorthorn and Black Stabilizer. And it just depends on breed composition as to what the crossbred cows get bred to. Generally, Stabilizer sired get bred Shorthorn, Shorthorn sired get Stabilizer or Angus and Angus sired gets Stabilizer or Shorthorn.
Here's a few calves:

Get out and vote folks!  The future of our country depends on what happens tomorrow!  I have never been real big on politics but the thought of another 4 years like the last four just scares the crap out of me!

It all started Wednesday afternoon at about 4:30, approximately 4-5 miles south of my main summer range, and it was headed north.  I was hauling hay home from south of the ranch and saw lightning north but had no idea of what was to come.  At about 7:00 I got a call saying the fire was about 2-3 miles from my pasture so picked up the guy that runs a few cows with me up north and we headed out to see what we were up against.  We got within 3 miles of the pasture before we ran into a traffic jam, which is never a good thing out in the middle of nowhere.  Finally got thru and to the pasture to find about 40 fire rigs on my ground along with about 8 county maintainers blading firelines on the north end of my property.  We drove where we could with a 4x4 pickup but could not find any cattle, so we headed back home and loaded 4 wheelers, spotlights and particle masks and went back to the roaring blaze.  Drove where we could with the wheelers and managed to gather up 12 pairs of mine and 1 fall calving cow of Dwights, there are 40 pair and 12 fall calvers in this pasture.  Got home at 2:30am and went back up the next morning after feeding the weaned calves we have at home.  We made it to the far southwest corner of the pasture that had been burning the night before to find all of the remaining cattle camped on a 50 yard x 50 yard "island" on the south side of a 70 ft. cliff, down in a holler by a pond.  All of the cows and calves were covered with soot, some have singe marks and burned spots on them but all alive and well.  We trailed them about 7 miles to some corrals and hauled them home Thursday.  I have been busy helping neighbors haul their cows to safety ever since.  I beleive Ive burned about $1100 worth of diesel thru my pickup since wednesday night.

The Big Show / What's your most exciting matings coming in 2012?
« on: December 16, 2011, 12:29:14 PM »
With calving season quickly approaching, I cant help but get excited.  Especially for some very special matings I have in store.  Im sure everyone has a cow or 2 bred to a certain bull due to calve in 2012 that you have high hopes for.  Lets hear about it.

I have 3 matings in particular that I am fired up about.  Time will tell if they are worth the anticipation but here they are:

1) DRC 244 (dam of Captain Obvious) due in March to GS&J Captain Rob. Captain Rob is a Captain Obvious son out of an RS 034 daughter, back to the dam of 034

2) A&T Captain Clara 040 (full sister to Captain Obvious) due in February to Eionmor Marquis!  <rock>

3) A&T Obvious Marquis 028 (Marquis out of A&T Miss Obvious 725 who is a Byland Mission out of DRC 244, captains mom) due in February to her Maternal brother and new cattlevisions aquisition, A&T Rawhide 962, an Open Range son.

Did anybody go to the Gibbs Farms sale recently?  I saw that select sires bought Lot 134.  I checked out the catalog and see he is a Upgrade son.  I really like him!  If anyone went, what did this 134 bull bring?  As well as prices on the other purebred simmi bulls.                                                                                                                                                                                http://gibbsfarms.net/pdf/2011/2011catalog/Gibbs%20Farms%20Catalog%2011-12-11%20(2-Bulls).pdf

Just curious what anybody knows about new laws being passed in the state of OHIO concerning "humane and ethical treatment of animals" and if there is any truth to what I heard, how is it affecting agriculture people there?

The Big Show / Apology to Jason
« on: June 21, 2011, 09:05:40 PM »
I posted a new topic last night about the Shorty Hfr Bull thread being locked and was a real butt about it and pretty much made an ass of myself without knowing it as I read Jason the riot act about locking the thread.  Come to find out in Jason's very professional and polite pm, he had no idea it had been locked, it happened on accident.  I am very sorry Jason for my conduct concerning this matter.  Folks we have a great guy running this website.

We have 4 yearlings left and 3 2 year olds still available.  Full performance and ultrasound data available.  Bulls have been developed on roughage only and have run out on 200 acres of river breaks all winter.  They are lean and ready to cover ground.  3 of the yearlings are sons of the Sneed bull, RS Max.  The other yearling is an ET bull sired by JSF Real World and out of a Dover Ranch female.  The 2 year olds are out of Max, Byland Mission son and 1 is a bull bred by Gary Kaper in Illinois.  These bulls were not bred for show cattle.  Easy calving, highly maternal cattle with an end-product advantage is what you can expect to get out of these bulls.  Priced to sell at 2000/head on the yearlings and 2500 on the 2's.  Call Aaron Rasmussen A&T Cattle Co. 308-760-5695  can e-mail pictures per your request. 

16 head. 15 blacks, 1 dark blue roan.  Individual birthweights, weaning weights and yearling weights available.  These heifers are mostly March born with a few late February and a few early April.  Bangs vaccinated and have had Bovi-Shield Gold 5, all tested BVD negative.  This is the best of the best.  We started with over 30 of these crossbreds and this is what we bangs vaccinated.  Heifers will weigh around 750-775 right now and are really cycling good. Every one of these heifers is out of purebred angus, a.i. sired cows and purebred shorthorn bulls.  Some heifers out of a.i. sires such as JSF Capiche and JSF Navigator.  Would like to sell as a group but would deal on groups of 5 or more.  There are some of these heifers that are definite donor quality.  Very nice set of one-iron, reputation type heifers. Pictures also available on request.  Located Nebraska panhandle.  1025/head off the ranch.  Call 308-760-5695 for more info.  Aaron Rasmussen A&T Cattle Co.
