    Pig Auctions Central Tx

    Anybody know of any auction barns in the central Texas area that sell pigs/hogs? Taylor used too but are no longer. We used to buy pigs from there and take them straight to butcher at the local FFA chapter. Most of the breeders around here cater to the show market and want an arm and a leg...

    What do you think of this bull

    I'm thinking of using him. For those who receive the Red Angus Mag. there is a mature pic of him in last months page 53. His EPDs are fine with me (his birth is a little lower than I normally use) so I'm just wondering what others thought of his phenotype and any flaws I might be missing...

    Fescue in Central Tx

    Will fescue maintain itself in Central Tx or would I have to repant every year? I currently have ryegrass that reseeds itself every year but would like to improve the early growth some. I figure since fescue is a perennial that once it established itself that it should have better early...

    Why all the fancy feed?

    I have not shown any cattle. My oldest dtr. is already showing interest in showing when she is old enough. We are wanting to start learning now so we will be better prepared when the time comes. Anyway, I am feeding my bulls and feeder steers up on shell corn, cotton meal, lime stone and...

    Diesels and chips

    Does anyone on here not run a chip on their diesel? I have an '01 Dodge that was averaging 18 mpg before the chip and is now averaging 22 mpg. I bought the EZ chip about 3 months ago for $300 from someone who had just sold their '01. I had hoped to get a gain of 2 mpg but ended up with 4...

    I've never been good at this

    I've never been one to ask other people to pray for something, but this time it's a baby. She was born less than a month ago at 23 weeks gestation. She had been remarkably well until recently. She developed a slight intracranial bleed about a week ago a level 1 on a 1-4 scale. The bleeding...

    calf with a limp

    He has some swelling just above the pastern. It didn't feel like a fracture to me. The site felt feverish but the calf didn't have a fever. No cuts or puncture wounds around the cannon, pastern, or hoof. He is getting around fine with no droop. The vet was already home and I felt that the...
