Yup, Texas.  It makes even more sense because the one non-Jersey I referenced was a Longhorn that somebody brought down from up North.

     Joe Boy, have you had a chance to ask around about the penal block? That takes care of alot of the desease risk and your yearling bull is already acustom to you and your methods of handling cattle. Cab

I don't remember where you are Jeff but probably TX, OK? Somewhere else we had a discussion about gomers and down there you guys seem to use dairy bulls while up here a lot of guys use Longhorns (minus horns) - must be a regional thing!



longhorns are pretty valuable down here for ropin'.  and you have to say "ropin'" not roping.

Off topic......most of the ropers I know have soured on Longhorns in favor of Corriente cattle due to durability issues.

I use CIDR's and a paint stick on the tailhead.  I have had alot of success with this over the past 4 years observing cows in the AM and PM (have to work during the day).  I have noticed that at the beginning I worried way to much and bred too early. (cow)

My vet says the side winders are the best that there is some problem with the blockage ring... can't remember what he said..... old age I guess....

I have AI bred since 1979 and all I have ever done was watch.  I have noticed that one cow seems to be more aggressive in mounting than others and that cow usually guides me to the one ready.  I have found heifers are more likely to ride those in heat than older cows.  I have tried a couple of different ways to synchronize and it works pretty good, but I have had greater success with just watching.

Thanks to all who put in their two cents worth.
