Private Treaty Sales / Re: Purple Passion Sale
« on: October 01, 2012, 09:33:47 PM »
I have had the good fortune of watching the past three Purple Passion sales.  I have always been impressed with how sound and functional the animals are from top to bottom, yet still maintain the look to compete in the showring.  This years group is probably the best to date, particularly the heifers.  If you are looking for that next show heifer, but also want a phenomenal cow after her show career I encourage you to take a look and give Anthony a call.  I have been lucky enough to watch this group from birth, and let me tell you they are the real deal.  My words can't do them justice, go take a look for yourself.

As a past customer I wanted to post here and let everyone know how great the service after the sale has been in my experience.  In 2009 I was thinking about starting a herd after several years away from cattle.  I called Anthony and asked to come view his group.  He invited me out and showed me a really great set of calves.  And even though I did not purchase that year, he stayed in touch and even pointed me in some directions to find the type of cattle I was looking for.  The next year I was ready to purchase and picked up two heifers from his sale.  They have done so well, they are the foundation of my future herd.  Anthony has been available every step of the way with them.  He offers feeding advice, breeding consultation, has helped me get them shown.  He has done these things with great patience, honesty and a wealth of knowledge.  One of the heifers i purchased in the 2010 sale had a steer this year that I thought was pretty good.  Anthony came down and evaluated him and has graciously allowed me to market him in the sale this year.  I can attest to the fact that you are not just buying a calf, you are buying the whole program and all the support that comes with it. 

This is a great set of cattle put forth by a great family.  Doing business with them has been a great pleasure.  I highly recommend giving Anthony a call and discussing how he can put you in front of some backdrops.  Read his sale intro., it's not just fluff. I guarantee you he means every word of it.  My young program is proof of that, we are many years ahead of where we would be without his help.  I've come to know the YNOT herd.  They really are offering their best.  I've personally questioned his sanity for putting up more than one of these calves.  Great cattle, spectacular service, I'm not sure what else you could ask for. 

A side note from my father, who is a man of few words, in reference to Anthony, "He is a square dealing, conscientious cattleman seriously dedicated to improving the quality of cattle in the showring and in the pasture"  That is a direct quote from a guy that has seen alot of cattle and cattlemen in his day. 

Don't just take our words for it though.  Get through this group and talk to these people for yourself.  You'll be glad you did.

Had the pleasure of looking at the sale calves this week.  This is a great set of cattle.  Thick, powerful and SOUND.  Not a bad walker in the bunch.  I was very impressed.

I used to work for our vet.  He did exactly what Cowz suggests.  regular granulated sugar to draw the fluid out.  Most go on and produce calves normally, if you keep infection from setting in

The Big Show / Re: Bull or Not - didn't want to hijack Doc's thread
« on: March 22, 2009, 12:48:05 AM »
We only run between 20 to 30 cows, but always keep a bull for clean-up.  I agree with OH_breeder, I cannot justify the loss of one missed breeding.  Also keep a tight breeding season and when I miss AI I need the bull to cover it on the next cycle.  I have never had any trouble finding a neighbor to lease our herdbull to when he's not needed on our place.  That helps a bunch in terms of space and upkeep of the bull.  It is a big risk loaning out your bulls, but I have had mostly positive experiences letting our neighbors use ours on their commercial cows.  I only let them go to folks that I know will do their best to care for them.

I type this tonight through teary eyes and with a heavy heart.  I am very new here but feel like I have lost a member of my own family.  Red was a major reason I chose this forum and I was always interested in her input to the discussion.  My condolences to her family, and to all of you on SP who will miss her so.  I had to explain to my three year old why the computer made his Daddy cry.  That is a testament to her goodness.

Red,

We had 3 Hardcore calves this year as well.  2 heifers and a bull.  All are out of Maine cross cows.  Love all three of them.  More top in them then any day old calves we've ever had.  I will post pictures soon.  I was wondering if yours were exceptionally vigorous at birth.  All three of ours were up, full of milk , and kangarooing around inside of one hour.  Almost freaky how thrifty they were so quickly

Thanks for that Tony.  Dad's catalogs are mostly Shorthorn.  We were looking for a picture to maybe get an idea about the overall size and shape of this bull's calves.
