    I recently retired, leased my cattle on a 60 40 split, he pays all expenses, and bought a second home in Florida. First time ever getting a mortgage. What a pain. They didn't even know what a 1099 was for. Wanted me to prove that the 640k that I reported on my taxes was real. Why would anyone...

    My friend and renter of some of my pasture, Bill Conley of Conley angus, is having his bull sale today. Ask anyone around here, and they aren't going because they don't like his bulls. Talked to Bill yesterday, most the calls are coming from Canada and Montana. He said a lot from Canada. Bill...

    chuck eye

    Everyone else probably knows it, but this year I had my butcher make some chuck eye steaks. Had one today. It's probably just behind the ribeye for taste and texture on this beef. I like chuck roasts, but didn't expect much from the chuck steak. Now, I always feed and butcher the best beef I...

    Weaned calves yesterday. Friend came by, asked what I thought they would weigh? Told him now about 450 to 500, would wean in the 6 range on the steers.

    Just wondered, how much trouble does feeding grain in third trimester really cause"? Don't want an opinion from,"Don't really know much about the bull, the epd said he was calving ease." Who has had a proven bull, several crops, then fed the cows one year and had nothing but trouble"? Reason...

    Late term abortion

    Found a two year old, supposed to calve in mid Feb., with afterbirth showing up. Lost her calf. My question- all ecomimics aside would you give her another chance next year. I know the smart thing would be to sell her and cut my losses, but she is out of a really good cow and put together like I...
