    An Embarassing Story

    I haven't actively posted on this board for about 5 years so those of you who have been around for awhile may remember me. For most, though, I'm probably a new face. I've had cattle since I was a kid and this is the first time something like this has ever happened to me. Let me first say that...

    Nominations are open

    So, does anybody have any idea about the democratic process involved in electing a new boss cow? Old boss was a senior citizen. She came off pasture a bit thin this fall. Made it through the preg check but the last cold snap we had was just a bit too tough on her. I think she had Wooden Tongue...

    The price of grain

    I heard the other day that consumers should expect prices to rise on cereal and bread because of the higher commodity prices that farmers are getting paid lately. I was talking to a grain farmer about that on the weekend. He told me that in a box of Corn Flakes tha there is about 3 cents worth...

    Ben Stein

    The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. My confession: I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I...

    Break, enter ...and getting caught in the trap

    So, I heard an interesting story this morning. My assistant and her husband were sound asleep last night when she awoke to a sound of thrashing coming from the basement. At first she thought a goose or something had crashed through her basement window. She got out of bed, and was peering through...

    Do you think they're claustrophobic?

    My two older boys were home yesterday and so I thought it would be a good opportunity to work a few of my late calves that got missed this spring. Out on pasture, they're all nice and quiet. I actually had one heifer that's been growing really well. She was off a cow that was a late calver (for...

    Gettin' Old

    I woke up with a kink in my neck this morning. Last week, I woke up with a kink in my leg. I guess I'm getting to the age where 'getting kinky' means a whole different thing than what it used to. ;-)

    Some days...

    I wonder if I'm cut out for this whole cattle raising thing. Came home tonight to find two new calves and one prolapsed cow. I'm having a good run after just about getting run over by my killer cow yesterday. Phoned the vet and he came out and got everything tucked back where its supposed to be...

    Your thoughts

    I've got a cow who is a bit of a pain for about the first three weeks after calving. If you get close, she gets all weird and stirs up the rest of the herd. Unfortunately, she's about the best cow I have when it comes to producing really good calves. Well, last night, she was giving me the evil...

    Never seen this before

    I had a dummy calf that was born back in February. It was cold the day he was born and his ears froze but I thought I got him in the house in decent time. I tubed him with some colostrum. Got him warmed up and put him back out in the calving barn with Momma for a couple of days. Then I let him...
