    Thank You for your help. Now the problem I have with clippers is they overheat, and then you have to let them cool, and by the time you are done clipping the lamb hates you and the stantion, and wants nothing to do with the clippers when you try and clip again becasue they are so hot. Do these...

    Should somebody stand up and say something?!

    Its truely up to you, but I have a kid at my fair that is the same way. Parents pick out the calf, parents work the calf, feed the calf, raise the calf, the kid walks into the show rings, places supreme then walks out. It pisses me off to no end. Parents buying $2000 steers and then doing...

    first fair with tie outs

    For dividers we use straw. or we get creative like this.... If you look behind me and the calf you will notice we used straw on the sides and in the back we put together small stands, describing the calves and decoration than used rope to connect the stands. Or if you look on sullivans they...

Can I save money by feeding more 2 way or 3 way? and spending less on grain? 1. Bermuda hay and alot of grain 2. 2-way and a...

    Feeding a Show Steer.

    Ok I have raised three show steers. The first was raised on Showmaster and Bermuda Hay. The steer ate a bag a showmaster every two days and two flacks a day. His meat turned out fatty. The other two were raised on Bermuda and 4way grain. Their meat turned out better than the first. I was...
