    wow wow wow

    I am proud of EVERY American, British, Austrailian (any other countries involved in the war) soldier and am very thankful. On the other hand, if I've said this once I've said it a thousand times: You can support the TROOPS without supporting the WAR.

    Hereford Heifer, Bull?

    I am not that big a fan of the 242 bull, but MANY others are. So bulls I would suggest: NS LAKES KILO 002, NJW 1Y WRANGLER 19D, THM Sleep Easy 3060 Those have low to decent birth weights. They also have a very nice package for the show ring. The best advice you could use: She's a heifer will...

    Hereford Heifer, Bull?

    What are your plans- goals? What is she like? More detail is needed than what your provided. Maybe a picture can help. What do you want... another show calf? a performance animal? How long do you intend to keep her?

    bought a reg beefmaster cow

    If I remeber right he said it was his first Beefmaster. I would not expect him to go out and buy a $5,000 cow that was AI'd to the National Champion. I'd expect him to get some decent cows and build on that.

    new baby

    I dont know about home reciepes, but they should probably get some colostrum (if they have some frozen) and then regular milk replacer.

    Bull of the Woods II

    Those cattle should be proud to have horns. The dinky horns some Horned Herfs have and limis have... they are the sad ones. :lol:

    Bull of the Woods II

    I do understand that most Longhorn breeders do raise for "long"horns. I've seen some really nice longhorns that probably didnt have the best tip to tip length. I guess its whatever works for and they must be working or else you wouldnt be in them. Good Luck with him.

    Bull of the Woods II

    No offense, but he is not what I like to see in a bull- or a feeder steer for that matter. He has no muscle and is funneled butt
