    Angus cow with huge udder

    She is mostly angus all black. I have just a few baldies with mostly all black herd. I would guess her weight at 1400 and she looks good. Her udder and teats both are swollen with no sign of nursing.

    Angus cow with huge udder

    Just noticed I have a cow with a huge udder (no calf). Is it mastitis and if it is what would it cost for vet bills? Can I send her off to the sale barn? Any advice appreciated!

    woven wire and electric fence

    I like the Stafix 12 inch offsets from Kencove that attach directly to the woven wire. I put one strand of 12 gage wire about waist high spaced about 30 feet apart. This allows cows to graze under the hot wire and you can still mow under it with a 10 foot or wider bush hog without any post in...

    Hay ground sprayer

    Need suggestions on hay ground sprayer. Neighbor has a good used sprayer for sale. It is an older Bestway 500 gallon,walking tandem, 40 foot booms, foam markers, hydraulic pump unit like the one attached. Do you think it would be ok for gently rolling hay ground or should I shop for something else?

    So sorry to hear about his passing! Went to your link and looks like everyone appreciated him as highly as I did. I have had health issues for the last 4 years with minimal visits to the CT forum. Guess that is why I was unaware of his passing. Rest In Peace Dun!

    Mirafount 3465

    I have had one of the 3465's for several years here in southern Illinois. If you put in the heat tube like they recommend, you shouldn't have any problems with the water freezing inside the tank in a moderate climate. They only problem I have had is the balls freezing to the top of tank from the...

    Horse stall mats for stock trailer floor?

    Can anyone tell me if the 3/4 inch horse stall mats like the farm stores sell will make a good floor covering for a 16 foot stock trailer floor (for hauling feeder calves) or will they be too slippery? My floor is rough sawn white oak (good floor but gets slick). If the mats are recommended...
