    Hay wrap

    I usually stuff mine between the loader frame and the cab, but I usually only feed four at a time. On days when I'm going to be out of town or set multiple rolls out I will throw them in a ditch or washout and light them on fire before I leave the pasture.

    Brahman Price and Value

    I have several angus cross cattle in one place and another that has Gert and Star 5 (Gert/Hereford). I really just want a couple so that he could easily differentiate his from the rest. Honestly I foresee it as more of a learning and appreciation scenario than a money making experience for him...

    Brahman Price and Value

    I have considered getting him a Brahman bull. I have angus crossed cattle and a herd of Gert and Star 5. The bull mates that sold with these heifers brought about half price of what the heifers did.

    Brahman Price and Value

    This is a picture the stockyard shared on FB if them. To me they looked a little older in the picture than in person, but I felt they were definitely good quality.

    Brahman Price and Value

    They were at Kilpatrick, AL at the Saturday sale. If they stated an age, I didn't hear it. I would estimate they were long yearlings. They ran all five through at once giving the highest bidder choice and the buyer took all. I don't know a lot about brahmans, but these were pretty fancy...

    Brahman Price and Value

    I have since contacted a breeder. They were good quality, but I felt the same way about seeing what a registered one would be.

    Brahman Price and Value

    I am located in Northeast Alabama. There are some around, but not very common. In south Alabama there are a lot more eared cattle.

    Brahman Price and Value

    My 8 year old son really likes Brahman cattle. Recently a local sale barn advertised a few head of heifers to be in the sale. I went thinking that I could bring one home for him. I figured it would be an easy way for him to spot his cow and that we could keep the heifers out of it and slowly...

    Bryan/College Station

    Thanks for all the helpful advice. I have only been to Texas a handful of times, but anytime I get to travel I like to find local spots to eat and coming from Alabama where pork bbq is mainly served, I sure do enjoy an opportunity to get a good Texas brisket or beef rib.

    Custom made boots

    My go to boots for the past few years have been Double H and Thorogood. They work good for me and last a while but seem to take forever to break them in. I have thought about trying a pair of custom boots like Beck Boots, but I don't know if I can justify the cost. Anyone here have any...

    TAEP

    I live in Alabama, not too far from Tennessee. I often see ads for bulls, equipment, and ect. that say TAEP certified or approved. I was curious and did an little research, but was interested in hearing from farmers in Tennessee about how this program works and if other states have things like...

    ez trail bale feeder

    I am currently looking at an ez trail bale carrier/feeder. I have never seen one in person but looked online and the concept seems great. I am curious if anyone has used one or even seen one. Also what are opinions on using bale feeders? I am looking to put this in a more remote location so I...

    Straight truck for cattle

    When I was a kid we would haul in the back of a 65 ford 1/2 ton truck if we just had a few to haul. If we had several we had a guy that would haul them in a larger truck with a wooden cage built. I feel like our cattle are a lot larger than they used to be too.

    Barbed wire/electric fence weaning

    I have a field that is crossed fenced with a decent barbed wire fence in place. I would like to add some strands of electric fence to it and try to fence line wean some calves. I was looking for suggestions on how many hot wires I need to add and at what height you would recommend. Thanks!
