The Big Show / pembrook/elmore sale 10/19
« on: October 20, 2019, 07:57:48 PM »
Any one have the results of what the red angus sold for?  Had a wedding and wasn't able to watch.  The sale isn't listed in the sale reports on liveauctions.tv.  Thanks in advance?

Get the Andis one with the interchangeable batteries and get a couple extra batteries so you can keep clipping while one battery charges instead of having to put the whole clipper on the charger.  They came out with these just after I already had a pair of the others, would have waited on these had I know they were making them.

The Big Show / Re: how do i twine legs?

Baling twine or horse hair glued to the legs and tail head to fill in gaps of no hair.  It is also used to change natural angles and give the appearance of straighter and larger leg or more level hip.

DON'T DO IT!!! Judges hate it and there are probably only 2 guys on the planet that can make it look natural.

Powderful or ProPowder White (Christmas tree snow) is the only thing I would use.  Maybe a little sawdust but only in a couple of spots and not the whole leg.
Just curious who are the only 2 guys on the planet that can make it look natural?  I know of a very prominent judge out of Missouri that would rant and rave over it when he judged steer shows but then his sons showed heifers that had it done to them.  I've also seen many judges compliment the fit jobs on twined cattle as well.

First off spare me the lectures on how you shouldn't need / use them when working cattle.  Which brands have y'all had the best luck with lasting?  Does anyone have the one with the rechargeable batteries like a cordless drill.  What about The Stinger?  Those are about the only ones I haven't tried.  Thank you for the input.

The Big Show / Re: Hauling cattle in a horse trailer

Horses will haul better in a stock trailer than cattle in a slant load horse trailer. Get a lq with a stock compartment in the back instead of a slant load with dividers.  The cattle will have more room and be more comfortable.  You lose a lot of space with the mangers and the rear tack, plus it will be easier to haul them loose or stuff that isn't broke.  The horses would have more room as well.

The Big Show / cattle truck question

What height ramp would one need to unload a straight deck or a pot with?  Can't find it on any trailer mfg website.  Thank you.

Is that the guy referred to as trucker don?

I'd say he was just cutting corners and costs.  If they are such a pain how come every major feed manufacturer out there uses them?

I've got a few straws of the Spur Emulous Master bull of Griswold's born I think in '69.  Will either sell it or flush a real moderate occ type cow with it.

The Big Show / Re: Cookie monster, m&m
« on: August 30, 2016, 09:05:08 PM »
Cookie Monster was a blazed face Full Flush x Meyer 734 raised by Roger Hainy and owned with Harkema and Klingner.  He would have had a very strong maternal background as all Hainy cattle did, he made good females back then (early 2000's).  He was plenty gentle too.  M&M was a Phil Lautner bull, may have been on the straight side from what I remember.  He was a Heat Seeker x Payback.  Both bulls could use more belly for today's times would probably be best used on Ohlde type cows.

SSR Mr. Driven is a long time proven favorite in the South, mainly with club claf breeders.  There's not a fancy pic of him so what you see is what you get.

The Big Show / Re: Squeeze Chute/Alleyway System
« on: July 01, 2016, 08:26:37 AM »
An 8' alleyway is only enough room to load 1 cow unless you have mini's, might want to lengthen that.  It'll save lots of steps when you can load multiple head at one time versus 1 in the chute and 1 in the alley. We have a 90 degree tub, a bud box and the old tradional v down to the alley, with limited use so far because its new the bud box seems to work the smoothest with the execption of calves just becasuse they don't know what to do.

The Big Show / Re: 2017 Ft. Worth Steer Judge
« on: May 22, 2016, 09:26:34 AM »
Doug Husfeld is who the judge is.  I highly doubt that no one showed up to the meeting to decide on the judge for the greatest steer show in the world. House he has been judging shows longer than you've been on Earth, predominately brahman shows but he is no rookie. 

The Big Show / Re: Old clubby Bulls before my time- calling experts
« on: December 16, 2015, 09:45:56 PM »
Shoot for females with these bulls that is where they will work the best now days.  The De Ja Vue's could have some fire to them and a few of the forms could too.  These would be big boned, hairy and good muscled.  Hard Core's could be hard made, he was in a sort the i-80 of his day on a smaller scale.  Wedge was kind of a regional bull and didn't get used very widely.

The Big Show / stolen property recovered in Michigan
« on: December 09, 2015, 09:13:56 AM »
Did I miss the follow up stories on the recovery of the semen tanks stolen at the Michigan Beef expo or have they not put published yet?  Will be interesting to see what else was recovered and if the semen was still in the tank.
