    Hereford breeding question, regular to miniature.

    My Dad was a hand on a Polled Hereford ranch, late 50s early 60s Double JJ. They had joint sales with the Circle M. Mr Hot Moore. Sold extremely high dollar bulls around the world. Straw was plenty deep is the viewing barn and sale ring to make those bulls legs look short. Pics Alyce posted the...

    Why wean calves?

    In my area it's mostly small operators going to a small sale barn. Sort them off the cows this afternoon and haul to the sale barn next morning. They are through the ring by 3:00. No information follows them through the ring. Fleshy or non black will get you $0.20-$0.40 deduct. Bull gets a...

    Castration issues/ possible infection

    Did you buy from an established cattle person or is this a Craigslist calf. If you get in a situation where someone who doesn't know is buying from someone who doesn't know things can get sideways pretty quick.

    How much urea is to much urea?

    What I see real world vs what some professor says, Hmmmm. Think I’ll put mineral out when they’ve eaten it up and left the white salt.

    How much urea is to much urea?

    I disagree with this based on observation of my cows. Loose white salt in one end of the covered bunk, Wind & Rain mineral in the other end. Wind & Rain placed in the bunk first so in the middle it was covered by Loose salt. They were hitting each about the same till August. As summer was...

    JD 230 disk

    I've pulled a 230 over a lot of acres. Pretty nice pulverizing disk, will cut level. If you need a breaking disk it will do the job just leave it folded up.

    CCM Drum Mower Height Adjustment

    How much higher are you wanting to cut. I had a PZ some years ago and would run the top link out some tilting the front of the drums up a little if I had a patch I didn't want to cut as short.

    Cut-over spraying question

    I had to spray some ditch banks and such. Put a directional boomless on and extension piece of angle iron and C clamped it to the end of the bucket on the loader. If you can creep around you can cover a good ways out beside your tractor. Letting the bucket up or down as needed.

    Safe, dependable, affordable

    Nissan Altima is a good car. Not too big but not too small. My wife loves them but she did switch to a Rogue Sport this time. I’d stay away from Hyundai. Nobody wants to work on them. Special tools required to change a belt.

    Anyone know about this

    These are the B farmers that Oboma loaned billions to to buy farms. Oboma Bucks were a running joke around here because of all the land being bought by B guys getting in to farming. Both my grandparents farms were sold, purchased with Oboma Bucks. Land bought, new fences built, stocked with...
