    I need help ?

    I've had a good experience with using a donkey or even a llama(they always seemed to work well with me) the earlier post about the coyotes or the neighborhood dogs is "it". I had a few calves tore up a couple months ago by dogs.

    how often do you check your cows

    I check my cattle around 4 times a day. Usually before I go to work or out somewhere, also around 3-4 times before I pack it up for the night. I walk right out my backdoor and about 150 yds to the barn, but I can see most of my cattle from the backyard. ~TERM~

    I've heard of the term "finishing" a cow. Can anyone explain to me what this is and how it is done? Perhaps I know of it but maybe by a different term. Can anyone give me some advice on what to feed each day to a herd of young black angus...5m - 1yr old? ~Thanks~ TERM

    I am just wondering what to start feeding a black angus calf(about 3 months old) seeing as winter is coming along and grass will be scarce. As he ages what should I feed him(feedwise, like pellets) and what type of hay is best? Also, can someone give me a little information on vaccines, what...
