    Hybrid Bull VS Purebred

    I like looking at Black cattle more but I know red calves will make just as much money. They have been in Northern Alberta lately anyways.

    Hybrid Bull VS Purebred

    You make a couple of good points! Have you bought any MC Quantock bulls yourself Supa Dexta? I would like to know if they last or not and if they are easy to maintain.

    Hybrid Bull VS Purebred

    Hello farmers/ranchers of cattle today. I currently own 40 purebred Black Angus cattle and 7 Angus/Hereford F1 crosses. I was planning to purchase a nice stocky horned Hereford bull next year and eventually produce a 3 way cross Angus/Hereford/Fleckvieh to make replacement heifers and marketable...

    Heifer Safe Clubbies

    I am looking for some suggestions on some nice flashy club calves that I can AI to 5 black balancer heifers. We have to be mindful of BW. I am looking to have the calves shown (hopefully heifers) I would like to stick with black hided animals and I am open to pretty much any breeds if I like...

    Hair loss on ears

    Could possibly be lice, its still a problem once in awhile. He's in with 3 other calves and they were all ivomeced in October. I don't think they are mineral deficient but it's something to look into. Thanks farmerjan.

    Hair loss on ears

    My little sister in law bought a 4h steer off of me this year and just recently he started losing hair on his ears. I don't notice any hair loss anywhere else or on any calves in my herd. Was hoping someone may have an idea as to what is causing this. Thanks in advance.

    Black Baldy Question

    I have a herd of purebred Angus cows, mostly black and a few reds as well. I put a Hereford bull on them last year and ended up with some nice black baldies I desired but rwf calves on the red cows (obviously) and two of the blacks. I know both sire and damn have to be red gene carriers for the...

    I like the first calf, she is cute. The twin is nuts though. I caught her to tag and such and when I let her go she ran through 3 fences and hid in the bush. Took 24 hours before I found her and got her back with her mom.

    Thanks for the link creekdrive! I thought they always threw speckled calves since they have shorthorn in them, and I know how long it takes to breed the chrome out of a shorthorn. If the speckle park heifers are replacement quality I may just keep them. The build is much the same as angus...

    Good to know. That makes it hard to retain heifers from this year if I don't want Speckles.

    So my neighbors speckle park bull got in with my cows for a few days. I wasn't sure if he bred anything until this calf was born. A week later I got another surprise. A set of twins, one speckled, the other straight black. Is it possible that both my BA bull and the neighbors speckle park...

    I love this girl because she takes good care of herself and her calf. Is always on time , and year after year gives me nice replacement heifers. I also like having her when I move cows because she'll follow me on horseback wherever then the rest usually follow.

    What Say You ??????

    I happened to buy 8 bred Simangus heifers last fall that were bred to a Beefmaster bull. I am really impressed with the calves, they are very growthy and deep. They had 4 red bull calves and 4 black heifers, kinda funny how it worked out like that.
