The Big Show / Re: Watch as Goretska Videos GO UP!
« on: October 08, 2010, 08:56:38 AM »
Brad I see tracy has 15 breds, are you going to video some of them? Waiting to see the who da man heifer.

They were clipping them today and starting everything at $1500.  There will be NO VIDEOS of these breds.  The Who Da Man heifer is toward the end of the list we videod....not because of quality.....just because that's the pen she was in.  Hope to have ALL 57 done today.

If you're bored in the OFFICE or at HOME.....you can keep me company if you like.  I'm working on 56 head for Tracy Goretska's upcoming sale on the 16th, and there's NOT a BAD ONE in the bunch. 

I'll be editing and uploading them to his video site at www.youtube.com/tracygoretska

The Big Show / Re: Best Market steer you ever saw
« on: September 26, 2010, 08:51:43 PM »
In regards to the WMW steer of Mannings.  a little research finds he was 1996 champion.  sold thru JBH's pasture to purple sale.  . 

Got a text telling me I better get on here........

ACTUALLY......"Chief" (the baldy steer) was  the first calf crop of "DeBull's"  OR "DaBulls" as he was first named.  Chief was the first A.I. calf out of what would become my greatest donor ever named "Hot Coffee", owned by Ed Coffee.  She was a full faced baldy Sm/AN going back to some old Fleckvieh breeding.

She was also the dam of "NO DOUBT".....a full brother to "Chief"..... and "Hot Lips" a legendary donor for Scott Coffee, not to mention SEVERAL OTHERS.

That steer really STUCK in Jerry's head.  When he judged the state fair in 2008, he mentioned him (Chief) in his closing Final Drive speech.  He truly was the BEST calf I've ever raised.  I can still vividly remember where I was standing in that pasture when he stood up for the first time!

The funny thing was, I'd never seen DaBull before.....Tyrone Hullinger was (still is) my hero, and I trusted him enough to describe the type of cow to use him on, and it just so happened HE WAS RIGHT! 

Chief was one of the few steers to ever win the Iowa Beef Expo and the Iowa State Fair.  Laverne Massman bought him out of the pasture for $3500 from me.  Russ Harkema came and looked at him at least a half dozen times that summer, and then ended up buying him out of Laverne's sale for $14,000 with Bob Manning standing right beside him.

Manning's had "Chief's" head mounted and hung it in their basement.

I had a partnership flush that was G.I.D. on a HIGH dollar Heat Wave cow, and everyone of them got sold, and most won something.

The wildcard is your color......red, red and whites, blacks, black and whites....expect them ALL.

I gave $15,000 for 1/3 semen interest in Get It Done, after I saw the first calves out of him and Heat Seeker influenced females......I probably haven't and won't make my money back on him, BUT, he's sired many, many big time winners.  Is he perfect....NO.....but none of them are.

I really don't know why he never took off like I thought he would.....the calves are big boned and hairy and he crosses AWESOME with Heat Wave and Heat Seeker genetics.....GO FIGURE!

You know......I've been thinking.....

Since you can add tabs to your blog for other pages to be added.....why couldn't you use blogger exclusively for your website? You can buy your own domain name for it.... I pay over $600 a year for a host out of Des Moines....kinda wondering WHY????

Will this work?  What's the downside?  JASON........?  JEFF.......? Anyone......? HELP!

The Big Show / When "PLANETEERS" Talk.....Manufacturers LISTEN!
« on: September 16, 2010, 11:02:13 AM »
Hey Everyone.....

I didn't go back and find the exact thread where we were talking about the first "Fitters Force" Blowers that came out, and the promotional video I produced for them....BUT,
I do remember some of the suggestions that were given right here on this VERY BOARD, and the manufacturers LISTENED!

I built an update video for them a while back, and just released it on my site.  Production is NOW in full force and sales have been through the roof! 

The one major change made was they went from a wire running through the hose to the remote......to a wireless receiver for the remote now.  It's pretty dang COOL!

If you have any further suggestions or ideas.....PLEASE keep them coming.....and thanks MUCH!


The Big Show / Re: "MY TURN" Information by Brad Hook.....please read.
« on: September 10, 2010, 08:39:09 AM »
Hey Brad,

What were the final results of the DNA testing to prove parentage?  Also, were you able to register him Maine?



Sorry folks......wasn't meaning to ignore you......just hadn't clicked on this subject for a while.  Thanks to those who brought it to my attention!  Been stuck in my office editing calf videos for a LONG time!

GOOD NEWS!......it's OVER!   We were notified by the Chi Assoc. a while back that the pedigree that was stated in the above posts is correct. My Turn remains a registered Chi with the original reg. number that was given to him.

For those of you asking about him being registered as a Mainetainer.......I don't think he can be, but I'm checking with the Maine Assoc. TODAY, just to be sure.

When you view the My Turn progeny in the sales this fall.....think about the batting average of units used to calves that made sales.  I'm sure My Turn runs a distant third in semen sales....but could very well be the LEADER in CONSISTENCY!

Thanks to you all for your patience. Brad.

I started a blog about two years ago and done absolutely NOTHING with it......and opted for Twitter instead.  After enjoying reading some of the popular blogs that have emerged in our industry.....I figured I'd better get after it.

All you long time bloggers.....PLEASE HELP! if I'm doing something wrong or need to do something different.....I'm kind of a newby to this format.  Hope you find it interesting. Hook

For Steers He has worked the best for me on my Simm x cows out of a meyer 734 son. And the heifers look like real good replacements out of my mostly angus cows and some simm.

The My Turn that was Supreme female at IN State Fair was out of a Grizz/Meyer cow.  I also just videod an awesome My Turn x Aftershock steer that I will post when edited, and that would be of similar breeding also.

Nope.....not a heifer bull.  He himself was very low birthweight, but he won't calve easy enough for heifers as a whole.

The Big Show / Re: jbh Governor's Charity Steer Show Judge
« on: August 20, 2010, 01:06:08 PM »
Caution - Good natured ribbing ahead.

My visit to the Iowa State Fair on Saturday did not include a visit to the Governor's Charity Steer show because there was no room left in the pavilion.  Tonight I saw Mr. jbh on IPTV  judging the Governor's Charity Steer show.  They said it took him an hour to find his champ.  Once he chose his steer, he took it easy on Mr.Grassely by not slapping the champ.  Either he remembers Jerry Douglas' advice or last year's mishap.  Mr. Grassley champ and Mr. Culver reserve.  With his tie and obvious network professionalism I would almost guess he was campaigning for some sort of government appointment. 

Seriously, I am glad one of our own had such a lofty task.  Brad, you did a great job.  I will post a link to the video once it is available. 

We got home from the State Fair last night and I was SOOOOOO tired I collapsed before the TV show came on......hope to catch it on the Sunday re-run.

It might have taken THEM an HOUR to get everyone interviewed and the show put on....BUT.....it only took me about 5 seconds after I saw ALL the cattle to figure out the Champion.  He was nice!

Had a blast doing it and there will be more to come about the Governors Security and T-shirt episodes.
