    If anyone has the time....

    if anyone has the to think 'bout it and do the figgerin, if you took a polled hereford with heterozygous horned and crossed it with a homozygous horned breed such as lets say a TX longhorn, will it be a 50% chance of coming out horned. I'd ask my animal science teacher, but I'm on Spring Break...

    PET COWS

    Its good to have tame cattle so you can look 'em over up close. And if by some chance they get out they won't be so flighty. But sometimes it is hard to tame your whole herd down if you have 10+ head it can get a little hard to tame them down, especially if you get them wild and mature, but if...

    Stupid Question

    Well, like I said, the main reason of use of a horse is the fact that i ride around a lot w/ nothing with me, just watchin the herd or checking fences. And if i'm "just sittin" on a horse I'm not burnin fuel. If I'm on a ATV waitin to go I'm wasting fuel and money. And the contour of our...

    Stupid Question

    If someone is playin anything then they don't really live on a farm or do but don't do any work. Now we are all here as cattlemen, not as fake cowboys or to state our false hopes. At any rate, CB, our farm has turned up profit for a good amount of years. And anymore, its growing just fine...

    Stupid Question

    Guess i just got a lemon. I've worked the heck outta it. yeah its seen some bad days 'cause of yours truly but i really figured it to be more durable. o it still runs and will work if it feels like it, but my only point was that there are times im needed somethin that will be on long periods...

    ??? PROFIT ???

    I was thinking the same thing that dawgone was thinkin. i was wonderin how some of the successful cattlemen got their start. how old were most of you when you got into the industry.

    Stupid Question

    Well i ain't into the idea to play cowboy. the way i've seen it is that the ATV sucks gas and if i ain't haulin somethin its a waste of gas. Course you got a point on the pasture, but as far as i can tell we've got enough to go 'round that one hayburner isn't gonna cut in too much. and i'm...

    Stupid Question

    GEEZ!!(gone a few hours and it turns into a 2 pager) thanks everyone for input. but i think i ought to clarify. i only thought a horse might work b/c the 4 wheeler i've got now is not anything to write home about. if i'm not busy runnin to get fuel for, it the tires are flat. and the horse...

    Stupid Question

    I live on a farm with a fair but not ungodly amount of pasture land and i was kickin around the idea of seeing about buying a horse and using it to ride around and check fences and the herds and that sort of thing. Of course, 1)you have got to feed it and keep it healthy, like you have to fuel...

    Delayed twin?

    Yeah, we had a little heifer from a cow and we went back out to the barn lot and she pushed a bull calf out. We got concerned when she would only let the heifer nurse. But after a few days the little bull finally got smart and nursed when the little heifer nursed. 'course they were only...
