The Big Show / Executive Order calves?
« on: March 09, 2016, 06:18:49 PM »
Anyone have Executive Order calves on the ground? I have seen one bull calf and (oh boy) are they good. I have one coming end of April out of a Uno Mas / Grandmaster cow.

The Big Show / Best place to buy just a few CIDRS?

Looking for best buy to get a few CIDRS.  Like 5 or less without having to buy a bunch of them.  Or is 10 the least you can purchase?

This is awesome!  My friend had two drop last week and he said they are solid little calves with a lot of class.  Good news

Don't mean to double dip on threads but curious if anyone has used this bull, have any calves out of him and what you think of him?

Can anyone help me find pics or info on calf crop out of Ghost Rider?  Should there be some on the ground yet?

Thank you very much for the info.  Both Touchdown and Free Spirit would fit the bill for sure.  I guess it's up to my kids now.  I appreciate the Shorthorn guys posting this info.

Thanks OH Breeder.

Ghost Rider has me kinda interested.  Never saw him before.  Pretty cool.

Is Alta Cedar First Blood horned?

So getting ready to make our annual semen order.  I always let the kids pick their bulls on their cows.  My boy has a mutt.  She is SH/Herf/angus cross.  My least favorite cow of my boy's, but he loves the heck out of her.  This will be her second calf.  She currently has a heifer calf out of a heifer safe black angus bull.  She is really tall, narrow topped and has no butt.  (Boy I'm making this sound pathetic).  My boy wants to breed her to a roan or white SH bull. Goal to get a better heifer.
I have one straw of JPJ in my tank but wanted to get some back up semen.  Any ideas? Preferrably $25 and under?  Was looking at Saskvalley Yesterday 116Y?  Bonanza appears to be sold out? 
This is the only pic I have of her as a weanling.  Not the best but all I have.

Chap I think you are spot on. 

I also like the embryo idea except we are probably 200+ miles from a technician or someone who can do it.  I guess we would have to explore costs.

I have a good friend who has produced my neighboring county's 4-H and FFA champs the last several years in a row.  He is the one that got me thinking.  He has had a ton of success using the bull Alias.  But his trick is to use him on his "less desirable cows".  They turn out awesome, but he said the minute he breeds him to his best cows, the calves have issues.

Thanks for all the comments everyone.   

Thanks for the comments.  I'm not worried about using a heifer safe bull.  Most of the cows are 5-10 years of age.  We understand the birthing issues with calving little "blocks".
I was just hoping someone had more pics of the results they got and how the breeding made you say, "wow that calf came out of that cow" kind of senerio.

I did it a couple years ago on a similar cow.  Bred her to Walks Alone and got a nice little heifer.

So my friend as a rancher has a lot of commercial, "range cows" that spend most of their life on grazing permits in the desert scrounging through this drought and then surviving tough high desert winters. They are "survivors" and not "show cows".  He just wants to get decent 4-H steers for his kids.  Obviously he would like to say he have show stock from years of detailed breeding, but he really dosent although his kids are working on it through breeding projects, etc.  Has anyone got some wing dingers, or surprise calves by breeding some of todays top clubby bulls to plain jane or even not so pretty cows?  Any pics?  My friend thought about pulling 10 or so head of the better mamas / milkers and wanted my help throwing some clubby semen in them.  Most are Angus / Hereford crosses or Sim / Angus crosses. Seems like most of his cows are a little leggier, and narrow. Thanks

Try keeping him tied, head kinda high and just mess with his feet over and over again.  Kinda like de-sensitizing a horse.  Also work on getting him to "walk" into the set if that makes sense so you dont have to do a ton of foot moving.
