The Big Show / Hereford show genetics
« on: April 09, 2018, 03:24:40 PM »
A friend of mine is planning on setting up a few of his GKB influenced cows so we can breed them AI.
I am running through the different semen providers trying to give him a little help with had he should order.
He is looking to produce a few show heifers for his kids. So we're looking for maternal genetics with good hair and bone.
My research is very limited I like the purple reign cattle, gkb has nice stuff and so does Sullivan's.
Just some bulls that catch my eye. You guys tell me cause I dunno I'm a Shorthorn guy.

Some people just sell bad cattle sometimes and make it up to you on the next one lol. Either way they get your money twice.
 Club calves are a risk and sometimes it just doesn't go well.  If the animal is that important that's why they have insurance.
I personally like the ASA guarantee or however that works, but that's on breeding females.

The Big Show / Re: Shaving/clipping cows
« on: June 09, 2016, 03:51:12 PM »
Useing the head clippers is fine, on the sheep heads I use a beveled blade that just cuts through hair like butter. This blade has dull tips so it's safe on calm cattle. I clip down the top to half way down the side , neck, head, and tail.  I do this in July when I have them all coming in for shots and deworming. If I see hoof issues I treat them as well. Do pregnant checks and pull blood if needed. January and July like clockwork

It seems like you are trying the right things. Unfortunately that's just the nature of Angus cattle.

Great first post.
You tell us what you know and will tell you what we know.


P.S.    I bet that judge is going to sell a lot of cattle between now and the show.

The Big Show / Re: Shorthorn dispersal
« on: May 16, 2016, 02:45:46 PM »
Yes this is a dispersal and they have had previous sales in which I'm sure they had good profit margins. Buying donors and haveing good recipes tends to do that in the show cattle business.
Anyone can have a good set of revenue numbers, but if your cost of doing business is to high it deminishes profit. 101 ..
I love hearing about total sales numbers, but I always wonder how money they actually made. Some of these big operations have a lot of money going to accounts payable.

These are show cattle bred to win cattle shows. These cattle are line bred and do exhibit a lot of predictability with continued line breeding. Yes the heifers get sold as show animals for a lot more then chump money at the county sale barn. This is what happens when you actually excel at maximizing profit. Who cares if you want to see the prefix back a few generations, raising cattle is a business and this family has been doing it for a long time in one way or another. Clearly a lot better then the experts on here.

My screen shots are to big to upload so I use http://www190.lunapic.com/editor/ and upload it then save the web image. I'm sure there's apps to do this but I'm lazy. Certain forums require a web link to images so it helps In that aspect as well.

I believe their in cross plains Texas.

Bull is out of double vision, I would assume the cows are clubby bred also.

It just depends on if you want to raise show cattle? If yes, then he would be a good bang for your buck as these are the bloodlines that win shows.
If you want to brag about efficiency and epds and what not, then no he would not be a good choice for you.
