DLD said:2 PHA's, I guess. 1 was way before we ever heard of PHA - that one was about 30 days early and probably weighed 75 pounds, just starting to fill up with fluid. Knowing what I know now, I'm sure that was a PHA (by Godfather out of a Payback daughter). The other just a little over a year ago, was prob'ly full term. I'll just say it was ugly...
No matter the impression some may get from my saying that I'm not going to absolutely quit using carriers, I can assure you I'll be doing everything in my power to avoid having another affected calf.
DLD said:Hey DL, good to see you, too. I'm a little slow I guess - I'd been wondering what happened to everybody... lol
I will say this, as time goes by, my aversion to the carrier cattle grows. I'm gonna have to love 'em a whole lot to want to keep 'em around.
If you'll remember, I wasn't doing the Beefpaca thing. I've been too busy with the purple roans
