    Skunk tale calves

    I guess it is the Black Angus that is creating the skunk tales! If you'll read my post, I am refering to the Simmi/Limmi cross cows with Angus bull. Those cows have had a lot of skunk tails.

    Just Starting Out: How does AI work? Best thing you can do is buy this book! IMO... I taught myself how to AI and this came in real handy.

    Skunk tale calves

    Some of the Charolais genetics will give you an occational skunk tail. The Simmi will also do it. My wife's uncle has Simmi/Limmi Cows and breeds them to a Black Angus bull. He gets a lot of skunk tails. I have the same type of cows that we use for recips in our embryo program. If the...

    Scur Heritability

    I'm not trying to be mean or disrespectful by saying this. I think his scurs are the least of your worries. He lacks a lot if you are using him in a purebred herd.

    Charolais or Angus

    I'd like to see those reports! We just weaned our bull calves off of momma and grass only. Avg BW of purebred calves was 82# and the avg WW on this set was 765#. All at 6.5 months old. And this is in TX in the middle of a drought.

    Embryo transfer?

    That's about as close to being dead on as you can get! Embryos might be a little higher. Depending on breed of cattle you are purchasing!

    eye problem

    Breeding Charolais Cattle

    Because they raise big calves.... If they didn't I wouldn't be getting 700 pound bull calves at 6 months old... That's why :tiphat:

    Calming Show Cattle

    IMO- the peace pellets are a waste of money... I tried them on a bull that I was wanting to halter for a sale. I did have some sucess with the Calf Calm. When I got home, I realized I double the dose. lol I would go with the melatonin like VCC says in the link on a previous post.... I...

    ln tank alarm

    why not just use a regular scale to hang the tank from. When you walk by, look at the weight. Record the weights weekly and the amount of nitrogen and then you'll know.
