The Big Show / Re: Weaning calves early?

You can definetly wean them that early. We wean all our show calves at 100-120 days old. Works fine. Just start them on grain.

He is picky on his CL's and he said they felt good. I won't put eggs in if they are not good. Guess I shouldn't be worried idk...we usually go off natural heats and get 70-75 percent but am just too busy to her watch day and night.

The Big Show / Cidr Help!
« on: May 25, 2013, 07:29:38 AM »
Ok, we had a group of 20 recips we were trying to bring into heat to get eggs. Put cidrs in with a shot of GNRH. 7 days later we pull the cidrs and have a shot of estrumate. Then 2 days later after we pulled cidrs we gave another shot of GNRH. Only half the cows showed a standing heat. Went to put eggs in and my embryologist said it was fine the cows all went through ovulation, and that the second shot of gnrh may have caused some of the cows to not how the secondary signs of heat. Anyways, we put eggs in all the cows except one that he said didn't feel right. Should I be okay?
Next, we have another group of recips the exact same protocol. Out of 25 cows NONE showed a standing heat, he plans to come soon to put eggs in this group. Should I be worried? Or are the drugs actually working?

I know a lot of people like him, I just don't. I see him as a poor man's monopoly. For as much as he is used no steers ever do anything big. Don't want the Galloway in the herd also. Just makes them too plain I guess. In my eyes he is really overrated and overpriced. Just my opinion, like I said I know lots of people like him.

Want to stay farrrr away from eye candy. Anybody seen a good number of MAB and 2tone? Really the 2 bulls I'm looking at. Planning on IVFing for bulls. Smilin Bob? I know monopoly works but looking for more bone and power. Lifeline and yellow jacket deals I like for females but the bulls I wouldn't want. She is a moderate cow, lots of red meat bone and foot. Just could use a tad of style. Thanks!

Personally, I think it's a waste of money. Plus, twin heifers are then useless. Also, twins rarely grow as well. But the biggest reason for me is because nobody enjoys calving twins.

Not too many hard drive cows out there worth much though.

From my point of view a good mother cow is a wide headed broody type female with lots of capacity, I don't see that in I80's at all. They are longer from poll to mouth than a lot of other sires make, can be taller and lack body. Exceptions to everything I know. I80 is back by a super cow I know, but the bull himself is gutless and as post legged as they come. On deep sided big volume cattle he can throw you a monster show heifer! From what I have seen his bred heifers are hard doers and don't keep their flesh like a good cow should. They grow into tall, leggy cattle. With i80 being so straight I would worry about throwing more clubby into the equation hoping for show calves. Just my opinion, but I'm not convinced they will make long lasting brood cows. Don't get me wrong though, he can make show heifers! And I use him for that myself.

I certainly agree with you on their lack of "terminal phenotype". I guess fr
