    Nature Loving At It's Finest

    Saskatoon is a beautiful city. I was there several years ago and have wanted to go back ever since.

    fence costs

    In my part of utah there is a strange law on the books. If a property line goes unchallenged for so many years, the fence line becomes the property line. So, in other words, if my fence was 20 feet inside my property, and it stayed that way for so many years (not sure how many), and the...

    Other jobs

    I remember cleaning out a hay barn for my Grandpa. The cows had broken through his fence and climbed all over the bales, trampling everything. By time I went to clean it we had several inches (nearly a foot) of moldy hay that the cows had used for a toilet. The hay was compacted, moldy...

    any good mags?

    Thanks for all of the great suggestions. I signed up for the free subscriptions of Drovers and Beef magazines. I ordered the free issue of the Limousin World magazine as well (breed specific, but it was free so why not). I may look at a few of these others and see what they are like. Thanks...

    any good mags?

    Thanks, Txag. That's a whole list of them. I'll go look up a few of them and see which ones in particular fit what I am looking for. Thanks for the quick reply!

    any good mags?

    I know there have been a couple of posts relating to magazines. It seems like some of them were centered around a specific breed. I'm looking for a good magazine that will help me with the basics of raising cattle, but not breed specific. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

    Fishing

    I've actually grilled catfish on my bbq, and it tasted rather good.

    mountain pic

    There are, and some nice ones indeed. I've not hunted elk, but have seen some great ones. Of course, I've heard the population is decreasing. Not sure if there is any truth to that.

    mountain pic

    Some of the people who responded to my post about identifying the breed of a cow commented on the mountains in the background. So, since I went camping this last weekend, I thought I'd post a decent picture we took of the canyon.

    any guesses on breed?

    So you think the black one could be a saler or saler/angus, huh? I hadn't thought of that. But that is the reason I posted on the board, was to get opinions from people that would know.

    any guesses on breed?

    Sorry about that, I should have resized the picture before I posted. Thanks for doing that for me. I kind of felt the cow was nothing more than "heinz 57" myself, although I thought it was worth the opinion of the good folks on this board.

    any guesses on breed?

    Took a picture of a cow, and am wondering the breed. Any ideas? She is approximately 3 years old, and is the all black cow in the foreground. Thanks for your help.

    Assault Weapons ban has Expired!

    The thing with Blackpower is that he loves to get a reaction. He loves to see people get frustrated and start arguing and bickering. He is like a little kid in that respect. If nobody gave him any attention, he would run somewhere else to try to get that attention. I admit, it is interesting...

    Thoughts on 9-11

    Never really have been a hero before ... You know, I used to work at the state prison, and I saw two different types of inmates. The first would roll over and just take whatever abuse another inmate wanted to inflict. That type of inmate was too scared to do anything. The second type of...

    Thoughts on 9-11

    I realized this morning that tomorrow is 9-11, and I started to remember three years ago. I tried to imagine myself in one of the planes, and wondered if I would be the type of person to sit quietly in fear or if I would be the type of person that would try to rally the other passangers to...
