|ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS CAN INCREASE HOOF ISSUES|
|06/18/2015 03:50 PM|
It has only been recently that much of the cattleman's concerns focused on drought and widespread lack of moisture needed to grow pastures and forages. These conditions remain in many parts of the country. However, other areas including widespread parts of the southern US have enjoyed substantial if not excessive rainfalls over recent weeks and months. While this greatly improves forage growing conditions in these areas, a host of other problems develop with the high, sustained moisture levels.

|IT'S THE PITTS -- NOW WHAT DO I DO?|
|05/11/2015 05:40 PM|
I hope I never have to retire because, quite frankly, I'm not very good at it. My friends can't understand why I don't want to retire while I can't understand why they worked their entire lives doing something they can't wait to quit.

|PRODUCERS MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER CREEP FEEDING|

Re: What am I missing? Pharo Bull sale
My best guess, based on observation, nothing scientific. Our original herd was 4-6 frame, and we have bred them down in size, over the years. They are now 3-5. A two frame, IMHO, is too small for the market place, seed stock or otherwise.
Have and will pray for you both. Ron
