Congrats, Stu!  That dude is a stud!

Certainly one of my pet peeves, and has been going on as long as I can remember.  Crazy when an operation sells only spring heifers, but has a bunch of late fall/early winter born bulls....just doesn't add up.

I have come to the conclusion that we are in the minority when we report only actual birthdates.

There's an old adage to remember...."If you tell the truth always, you won't have to remember the facts that you lied about"!

Honesty is always the best policy, but the greed in the world gets in the way.

I picked Angus Valley out of a large pen of bull calves at weaning time as my favorite.  He was a stud.  Can't comment on his calves, but he looked exceptional at all stages of his life.

This has always been a pet peeve of mine...and I'm gonna stick my neck out and guess that an alarming number of calves are "aged". 

And why does it have to happen?  If a simple ribbon in a show ring is more important to someone then integrity, that is sad.  A few more pounds on the 205 day weight...will it make that critter sell that much better? 

There is no way to police it, however.  Has happened in the past, is happening now, and will continue in the future. 

Kudos to those breeders with calves born 12/31 that show up as 12/31 calves in their sale catalogs!

I've always been told that 3 or 4 times is acceptable, if not over-stimulating.

We only had one ET born this year.  He's a good one.  If they all have his front, hip and rear leg, I'll like them.

I'm sure I'm considered old school, but I've clipped hundreds and hundreds of heads with Stewart Oster sheepheads.  Still work fine for me,

We have an I-80 fall yearling bull out of a Dream On donor that is awesome too.  In fact, just last night I was thinking that it might be a good plan to flush her that way...wondering how the females would look.  Might be one of those so called "genetic clicks"....

Great posts, guys.  Appreciate you sharing all of this information.  Very interesting.

My experience with the Simmental breed started several years later...I'm more of the Achilles Superstar, CPS, Highwayman, Pineview Jazz, RBR Papillion, etc. generation, though we had a bunch of Signal cows around.  And the Signals were great cows.

Gonewest, that last black baldy pictured is spot-on; I'd take 100 just like her!


We've had all kinds of odd heats this year....back in at 16 days; back in at 25 days....had one recently bred one night; standing again 24 hours later...

Good luck...

The Big Show / Re: Costs of certain vet charges???
« on: May 21, 2014, 08:35:50 AM »
All interesting comments, folks.  I support our local vets 100% and am very thankful that they are here.  Just hard for me to swallow certain charges, while others are maybe even too cheap in my eyes. 

Another charge that always gets me is that I live about 1 mile out of town, 1.5 miles from the vet clinic, and our trip charge is $45 every time doc comes out....$45.  To make it more crazy, our doc lives across the section from us and goes by our house to get home....Oh well, it's only money!

Thanks for the put...

Just for information, I got charged $37.50 for a health paper the other day...which was hard to swallow.

Trich tests $75 this year.
