dutch pride said:If they have not been clipped before or recently, we like to "rough" clip them about two weeks before show and then come back a week later finnish them up. Still will do a little touch up at the show.
As far as breaking a calf that soon It would depend on the calf I think but I don't think it would be enough time to do a decent job but sure wouldn't keep me fron trying.
ive got the same question as you maine12,ive got a show in 2 weeks and still need to break my steermaine12 said:
Rocky Hill Simmental said:I barrowed a grooming chute last year and brought it with me but I didn't use it much and a lot of random people assumed it with their lawn chair and set on it.
renegade said:Our chapter has two chutes, they are heavy suckers but they get the job done. anyway we took one to fair last year and i used it a lot to get my bull blown out and to keep him clean until his show because he loves to throw dirt and saw dust on him self... especially just after a bath. Our problem is people think they are free to use it for their own cattle without asking(even if they didnt ask i wouldnt care as long as it didnt get broke), it wouldnt be as big a deal if i didnt need to use it at the same time.
