    Arkansas Elk (pics)

    I had no idea that Arkansas had elk, much less trophies like that!

    Cottonseed will be fine. The other cows eat it fine with no problems. Jst one of those things I guess, I'll watch and see what happens. She is starting to gain slowly.

    First Calf - Thoughts?

    Very good form for a 5 month old. I have one the same age that looks about 75 lbs lighter than yours.

    Hottest Hot Sauce I've ever tried is called 'Bayou Viagra'. Proceed with caution...

    Thanks for the input. I had treated her twice with Safe-Guard worm pellets. Had the vet come out last week and gave her a shot. Not sure what it was, but I know it cost me $125 :shock: He said to take the calf off of her early and to keep her on the cotton seed and corn for another two...

    I have a Brangus cow that had her first calf about 3 months ago. She started looking shabby a few weeks ago. She has lost a lot of weight and has long hair still, which makes me think it is worms. I seperated her and gave her antibiotics and worm medicine. Put her on feed also. No luck so...

    1st Calf - EVER

    Haven't been on the boards in a while. I switched from a feedlot to cow/calf operation about a year ago. Just had the first calf drop last week. Amazing! Brangus bull and Hereford heifer. I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how... :banana:

    Hereford Hoof Problem

    Thanks everyone. The terrain is very good here. Great pasture on a ridge. I'm in Louisiana so, sure, it does get wet for a day or two after a rain, but we're in a DROUGHT, so there goes that theory. The hooves are actually beginning to improve. The "long" side dropped off in the rear. They...

    Hereford Hoof Problem

    Ok - I have heard the many problems with Herefords regarding eyes, cancer, etc. I am a glutton for punishment so I finally bought one. I have a Hereford heifer (now bred by the way) that has recently begun 'growing' her hooves; they began extending past normal length of cattle hooves. This is...

    Look What I caught

    I'm jealous. I'm going to Colorado next spring and I would love nothing more than to catch a few brown trout. Is it impossible for an 'out of towner' to get in on the action?

    bored with the same old recipes-

    I'm a seafood buff. 2 quick meals are: 1) fried calamari with 'Cajun Power' garlic sauce (I can send you a bottle if you like) and 2) Baked sea scallops wrapped in bacon seasoned with lemon juice, worshitsher :( sauce, and lemon pepper.

    Additional deer / turkey hunting lease

    Sounds like a dream come true. You could probably scout for 2 months and never see the whole property!

    Oldtimer - I am the same way. I keep a pair of compact binoculars in the center console of my truck. They're OK, but for hunting, I use my large Bushnells.

    Deer Season Prep

    Dave - I have one ground blind that I hunt out of late in the season. Only hunt it if you are downwind.

    Deer Season Prep

    Went clear shooting lanes and put up a new box stand yesterday. It was HOT! I think this is the earliest I have ever starting preparing for deer. I set out my game camera on my mineral sight. I will share pics when I check it next week.

    Too much angus!

    Cypress - Same here. I see Charlais brining good prices in Carencro and Mansura. Herefords don't sell real good though. For my 'black' calves, I list them in the Market Bulletin, and I get a premium as replacements.
