    My version of heifer pasture photos.

We have had so much rain that they could not keep up to the grass and weeds. We have been cutting the thistle down to try to get rid of it. Last year we kept up OK, this...

    Help from the dairy breeders on here.

    I have a friend that has bought a bred Holstein to feed through the summer then sell her at fair in August. I would like her to feed the poor thing more but need some guidelines to show her.

    Heat detection aids.

    So what is everyone using. I have used the Estrus Alerts and they are fine but has anyone used spray paint and liked it. If so exactly what kind. There are dozens out there and I really don't feel like trying a bunch if I can use someone's research.

    N/C sports question

    So was watching football(NFL) tonight and got to wondering why, in North America, there are 2 football leagues but most other sports like Soccer, Basketball, and Lacrosse they play each other on both sides of the border?

    newborn with hernia

    So had a calf born with a hernia. Was a first time heifer but would not call it a long or hard labour. The vet today said that it could be genetic and that the bull may sire more. We have had 2 other calves by him, no issues, have 2 more coming. Now I wanted to use this bull harder this year as...

    Sulfer Toxicity - MERGED TOPICS

    Sunday morning the calf cant stand and you think that is normal? Just a FYI a calf needs colostrum 4 to 6 hours max after birth not 24. I still say its Piss Poor Management more then PEM, and your conspiracy theory's.

    Sulfer Toxicity - MERGED TOPICS

    So you found the calf Sunday AM and was not sure it ever sucked but didn't try to give it colostrum until the next day, which is way to long and would never do any good. They didn't put the cow and calf in a smaller area where they could be watched closer to know if it got up and nursed?  I...
