THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- DIFFERENT STRIPES
02/24/2017 04:31 PM
Hooter was feeling lucky. He bought the set of calves because they were cheap enough, and he had some wheat pasture for them. But being able to sell them into an up market with solid gain as the grazing ran thin was more chance than plan. He knew that, but he also couldn't help feeling just a tiny bit proud.

A.I. CAN CATAPULT BEEF BREEDING PROGRAMS FORWARD
02/24/2017 04:31 PM
The first use of artificial insemination was accomplished by Arab Sheiks who wanted to utilize bloodlines of tribal enemies. They would sneak up to the other tribe's herd at night with a mare in heat secretly collect semen from the stallion into a leather pouch and take it back to their own camp to inseminate a prize mare.

PRODUCERS CAN MAXIMIZE PREGNANCY RATES USING A.I.
02/23/2017 04:31 PM
Artificial insemination (AI) offers cattle producers the opportunity to use semen from high-accuracy, genetically superior sires at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a herd bull with similar genetics.

IT'S THE PITTS -- IDENTITY CRISES
02/23/2017 04:43 PM
There are many pros and cons of being me. The pros are I have a wonderful wife and a wonderful life, while my biggest cons are a sickly body and a terrible name.

It's always a good idea to have a breeding soundness evaluation and semen check for any bull you plan to use—not only for bulls you purchase, but also the bulls you kept over from last year.

WATCH FOR SIGNS OF NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES

INTEREST IN LEGEND LESPEDEZA CONTINUES TO GROW
02/16/2017 04:41 PM
Predictions swirling around for 2017 include very little improvement for beef prices and the possibility of some extended drought conditions in some regions. That means that every serious manager facing this possible scenario had better be looking for ways to manage on both sides of the ledger.

BLACK INK -- THE PAYOFF FROM PROGRESS
02/13/2017 05:01 PM
There's always something more to do. After the holidays, things will slow down. Nah, maybe after calving, branding and breeding. But then, summer comes and there's all that hay to make when the sun is shining, fences to build and cedars to eliminate (or insert your own region-specific fair-weather task).

IT'S THE PITTS -- GYPSIES, TRAMPS AND BEEVES
02/09/2017 04:47 PM
I get my news from paperview. I read the newspaper. I don't watch much television and have found that your average security camera monitor is more entertaining than TV.

Ignoring extremist animal rights groups in the hopes of dousing the flames of controversy might have seemed logical in the beginning. Limping along without having to commit more scarce resources to the fight might have seemed necessary. Now, these notions seem less quaint than downright destructive.

Breeding / Calving Issues ? Re: Guess the weight
71 lbs. I assume it's been really warm up there. I can't believe all that snow melted off that fast. I still had snow in my truck bed when I got home from up there.
