    What's the best way to "liquidate" a small herd?

    I want 9k for the lot. I will give the buyer 20 bales of net wrap to go with the herd. I will prvide details if interested. Have vet records. All the stock has WHR bloodlines. WHR has an in herd use interest in the bull, but buyer gets full possesion.

    What's the best way to "liquidate" a small herd?

    I put an ad on the Dallas Craigslist. I am north of McKinney. I have enough hay to winter them, so I'm not concerned or desperate to sell them right away. Actually I did good on hay. I have about 400 day supply right now based on my consumption calculations.. I'd love to sell the herd and then...

    Dumb question of the day...

    Was giving some Banamine and a shot of Draxxin today to a small calf. She's squirmy and I was alone. Got the Banamine in the neck area fine. Rather than let loose of her and switch sides, I grabbed a tent over the left hip area by the butt and put the antibiotic sub-q there. Then I got to...

    I'm at a loss here..

    Thanks for the replies. Had the vet back on sunday AM. It was Tetanus ..Guess the placenta came in contact with the dirt when she calved 2.5 weeks ago. Vet figures the placenta pulled some dirt into the uterus before she completely passed the placenta, thus causing the introduction of the...

    I'm at a loss here..

    Shes getting 35 cc of penicilin each day. I will give him a call tomorrow ,if she's still with us. If she goes down, I'm just gonna end it. (figures it rained 2 inches today. If I have to down her, removing her is gonna be a booger)

    I'm at a loss here..

    Guys, I think I may be looking at a case of tetanus. She's looking like her jaw is locking up and the wife says she looks stiff when she walks. Guess it may have been introduced when she calved. I guess its a wait and see if the penicilin was too little too late?

    I'm at a loss here..

    Thanks. We switched the calf to a bottle today. Wasn't sure she was getting enough from momma. Guess I'll just have to let it run its course for now.

    I'm at a loss here..

    Well, she was in the barn and being fed clean horse hay and good cubes, just before she fell ill. So I wouldn't think she has ingested something "foreign". The barn is clean. And she's 10 years old, not 9, not that 12 months makes a difference. It seems it all went really bad after the ivomec...

    I'm at a loss here..

    9 year old Shorthorn. She calved 2.5 weeks ago. No issues. Calf got pneumonia , but we've dealt with that and she's fine. Problem is the cow started going down hill about a week after calving. She went off feed and wasn't drinking much. Last monday, I decided to worm her, to see if that would...

    Is she worth showing...

    I thought I had a kid that was going to show this heifer for us, but it fell through at the last minute. I have put a lot of work into her and she is just about halter broke. She's got the right lineage to do well. Her weight gains are great and she's got lots of hair. I am wondering now if I...
