The Big Show / Feeding a show heifer for the fall
« on: June 07, 2011, 10:34:12 AM »
Hi, I've been feeding a yearling angus heifer for show. Currently I'm giving her 10 pounds or so of purina beef mash with some soybean mixed in for the extra protein. I want to put some more cover on her, and I was just curious as to how to go about doing it. I was thinking of mixing either cracked corn or some barley in with it, but I'm not sure which one will give me the best results. Any suggestions?

The Big Show / Young Ration to grow bull
« on: January 25, 2010, 07:14:21 AM »
Hello everyone, I was hoping that I could get some advice. This is our first year raising and feeding a bull calf, so I was interested in what he should be getting nutrionally. He gets hay, and for the last while i've just been feeding him a beef mash thats only 13% protein. He's growing, but not like i was hoping he would. What should he be getting?

Does anybody know how the sale went? I meant to watch it but got busy fixing the water up on the farm. What was the average? And does anybody know what lots 3,5 and 6 went for? The  cattle looked good in the sale book.

The judge has always told me that you should be enjoying yourself out in the ring. It shouldn't look like you don;t want to be there, so I would say a smile wouldn't hurt.

The Big Show / Starting a herd
« on: February 11, 2009, 07:08:17 PM »
Hi everyone, I was just wondering what you guys thought were some good (and fairly inexpensive) ways to start a little purebred herd.  Embryos? Good bred yearlings? Or Older cows towards the end of thier lives bred to good AI bulls? What are the pros and cons to each one? I know there are a lot of members on here with tonnes of experience, so every piece of advice helps!

The Big Show / Embryos
« on: February 03, 2009, 01:37:22 PM »
Hi everyone, I had a question about embryo transplants. How does the whole process work? I've been thinking of buying some frozen ones in plugging them into a couple of cows, but I'm not sure how much it would cost to do, or how the process works. Could anyone help me?

The Big Show / The Spread of Ringworm
« on: January 30, 2009, 09:57:39 AM »
Hi, I know that ring worm can be transmitted through halters and show combs, but is it possible that it also can be spread through the use of clippers? I only ask because I have read forums on here that say that Fluid Film is a good way to kill ring worm, so I was just wondering if the oil on the blades would be enough to stop it from spreading from one cow to another.

We run a small cow calf operation with 25-30 commercial angus cross cows, with a couple show cows as a hobby. Were in Nova Scotia, and we all work off the farm.

Aside from that high tailhead, I really like her. It looks like she's standing on a good pair of legs. I hope she does well!
