    Which cattle chute

    Definitely an S04. Same here. We have two. One for each operation with preg cage. Money well spent because it cut down on time from using just the head catch and a wooden frame.

    % of bulls vs heifers from ET

    Same here. Wanted heifers and all we got were eight bulls and two heifers. Was definitely disappointed.

    Raising your own bulls

    Elkwc, out of curiosity why did the breeder want to hold the papers? (even if you didn't care) just curious why he'd not just cancel them if sold commercial

    New breeding season

    I'd like to know too. I liked his look as soon as I saw him but didn't get any info at the time so I passed for using a different bull.

    LD Capitalist 316

    I second that. He's been good on just the one we have. I was questioning it at first because she came so very small (yes I was aware of calving ease) but she's held her own and is now a walking tank. Very thick and even bodied.

    Fall seeding help needed

    Thanks I feel better as I didn't want to disk if possible. The cows have nubbed this patch down so much that I kicked them out Sunday so thought it would be a good time to toss some seed. Appreciate the responses.

    Fall seeding help needed

    Ok folks need some advice on fall planting. I'd like to broadcast see over my summer grasses if possible but not sure it will work. Cattle have nubbed the crab grass down to the ground but it is still there but hasn't been growing recently due to cooler temps and almost no rain. My question is...
