The Big Show / Giving Thanks, One Heck Of A County Show!!
« on: January 29, 2013, 11:26:08 AM »
First of all I want to congratulate my daughter, she works her tail off in the barn and deserves any and all awards she receives. She had Reserve Champion steer and heifer last week at our county show as well as steer and heifer Showmanship Champion.  As many of you know Chambero is one heck of a guy.  We had 2 head we bought from him in the show, one steer and one heifer.  The heifer was Continental Champion and reserve overall heifer.  The steer was British champion and came close to winning reserve overall.  Thanks to you and your Family for your support of Faith the last several years.

I also want to thanks Colby and Shellie Collins for the Reserve Champion Steer.  This was our third year buying steers from the Collins and they have all turned out really nice.

Steer is a Troubadour and the heifer is a Monopoly.

Thanks to all the hard working cattle breeders out there trying to put Champion cattle on the halter for our kiddos.  (clapping)

I was given some SC semen and want to use it this week but have a question.  I have two pure bred Shorthorns in my herd but they are different types of cows.  How Does SC change cows and what type of cows does he work best on.  My wish would be for a heifer calve in the end.  Both my females are Free both ways.

Thanks for your input

Just FYI  for those wondering about him.  She was calved out of a heifer and weighed around 50lbs.  Was up and nursing within an hour and is doing great.  I have one more Thriller coming and I will post it here is well.  We will see how they lookk at weaning.

The Big Show / Prayer Request
« on: September 27, 2012, 08:36:25 AM »
Sheri Ellis, a big supporter of the Texas Junior Livestock Association, was nearly trampled to death while feeding cows Tuesday morning.  She is in critical condition in a San Antonio hospital as I type this.  She underwent emergency surgery yesterday where her spleen and one kidney had to be removed.  I've been told the other kidney is failing and she still has a bleed that they will try to locate today.  Sheri, her husband Larry, and daughter Kali are big in the BeefMaster breed in South Texas and have had major champions with cattle breed on their own ranch.

Please pray for the family and I will keep you posted as your prayers are answered.

Thank you  :'(

The Big Show / Aggie Nation Should Be Proud!!
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:18:54 PM »
This is a blog from a Gator fan who was at the game Saturday.


Business leaders often struggle to define corporate culture. The right culture is elusive and fragile, and if its not a carefully protected part of what youre about every day you can lose it. This weekend I got a lesson in organizational culture Ill never forget. I went to my first football game at Texas A&M University.

These guys get it.
This weekend the Aggies played their first game as newest members of the mighty Southeastern Conference. The University of Florida Gators had come to town, and although their last season had been a disappointment, Florida was only a few seasons removed from its dominant run of two national championships in three years. The Gators represented SEC royalty, and they had been picked to travel to Aggieland so A&Ms inaugural conference game could be played at home. This was to be an epic game, the dawn of a new era at A&M on college footballs biggest stage.

The game had been sold out almost since the more-than 83,000 tickets were printed. Saturday broke crisp and electric, the weather gorgeous and the energy palpable. The city was awash in maroon and RVs had been parked for days. History was being made, and everyone within 5 miles of historic Kyle Field felt it.

Into this other world walked about 5,000 Gator fans. My son and I were among them. We wore our Gator jerseys and our orange and blue hats. We steeled ourselves for the harsh and sometimes insulting epithets to which we had become accustomed in places like Baton Rouge and Knoxville, where foreigners are considered fair game and common expectations of decency often suspended on game-day afternoons. As we emerged from our car and into the maroon milieu we thought we had prepared ourselves for anything. We were wrong. We werent prepared for the one thing we found.

Genuine friendliness and hospitality. It was pervasive and natural.
It was a culture.

People smiled at us and welcomed us to the campus. They thanked us for letting them into our conference. They wished us luck before the game, and after a Gator win they congratulated us with sincerity. Members of the famed Aggie Corps of Cadets posed for photos with enemy Gator combatants. People offered directions when we appeared lost, waited so we could go before them at every queue, and let us know that they were glad we had come to the game.

It was a remarkable experience, and as the day wore on I realized that I was witnessing perhaps the most pervasive positive culture I had ever seen. Sure, to a person they were passionate about the Aggies. But at their core, they were just as passionate about being polite hosts and friendly neighbors. They were welcoming us to their home, and it was important to them that we had a great experience.

Understand, Im not talking just about elderly and statesmanlike alumni. Im talking about students, and parking lot attendants and concessionaires and ushers and every single person whod paid god-knows how much for the chance to see their beloved Aggies win their first game in Americas premier football conference.
That kind of culture doesnt just happen. Its built, and its nourished. Its taught and its passed on. Ultimately it becomes part of the fabric that makes up what and who you are. And the Aggies have it. In spades.

My hats off to Texas A&M University and the Aggie nation. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon you showed me what culture is all about. Well done.

Really happy with how he fed during the heat of the summer.  Looking forward to watching his progress over the next four months.

Thanks Chambero for letting us raise this one.

The Big Show / Cream Of The Crop Female Sale
« on: May 25, 2012, 03:21:47 PM »
My Family and I are headed up to Oklahoma to purchase cattle out of the COC sale next week.  It will be our first time going to the sale and we are very excited about the trip.  Has anyone been to the sale before?  What can we expect and is there any advice you can give to some newbies.  With almost 500 lots I was feeling kinda of confused but since the videos have come out it looks like there will be plenty of good ones to choose from.

Any comments or advice is appreciated.
