    Right approach?

    This is a little old, but doesn't this sound like a lotta input (labor, and feed, maybe not cost) for 550lbs calves. Dont know the quality of your hay but free choice hay through calving and weaning alone, would seem to produce those calves, especially with your breeding. Just seems with your...

    $100 semen

    Really dissappointed me when hereford breeders doubled or better the price of semen on non-cert bulls the whole point of non-cert bulls was to increase the use of that bull (young unproven bulls, or breeders without popularity, to say). Makes it pointless to use a non-cert bull at $100 a straw...

    What Would You Do?

    Get with your local feed dealer. Usually the fiber in the stemy stuff is too high and they wont digest it well. Some protien blocks and tubs are designed to help them brake down the fiber and ingest more of the stemy stuff. The blocks I use run $8/hd/month I graze stems this time of year, the...

    Horse slaughter

    extreamly over populated with wild horses and not just them. No one wants to adopt them and no where to take them. What happend to the previous plants? I believe texas has a state law banning horse slaughter. There are 4-5 states that have passed there own laws banning horse slaughter.

    Horse slaughter

    Preventing Horse slaughter was a bill that stopped all funding for USDA inspection of slaughter plants. The tribes have long been able to slaughter but not being USDA inspected they have no where to sell the meat. Just prior to thanksgiving congress passed the same bill but pulled the stop of...

    Horse slaughter

    No one has commented on the new changes in horse slaughter. Looks like indians are ready for a plant. Who ever takes the risk to open a plant will be rolling in money as long a thing dont get shut down by September. Yakima tribe (my grandmother is a enrolled trible member) has huge issues, along...

    Donor Production

    I havn't flushed befor. I was curious if after flushing a donor her production of natural calves was affected at all; or maybe performace? Are they flushed multiple times per heat with an average of 6-12 embroys or an average of 6-12 per flush? Thanks

    Phenotype, Fancy, or productive.

    For those that choose to stay in the buisness for several years they will see a higher demand for there calves from buyers through reputation of their genetics. True or False?

    Is there a market for good but non registered Hereford bulls

    Just a question or two. Do you plan to go through all the preformance data work; as for ultrasound, performace weights, semen test, possible trich? After those cost; why not register them through the breed association? If so than on a per/hd basis the association cost aren't that bad. Unless...

    Watcha think?

    As to page one; I really like the red cow. As for the condition; when I see them that fleshy it usually means you have room for cattle if you so choose. Although a cow in workin clothes doesn't take the best pic, nor does it have the best sale pitch "Trust me she'll look better". I resorted to...

    Is there a market for good but non registered Hereford bulls

    Then all cull bulls and cows are worth more as long as they are registered. I think most cattleman would sign up for that. SR your bull is a cull. If your not willing to go through the work of registration and documentation of the bull than he's nothin more than a bull calve that should have...

    Blooming heifers

    There's really no benifits to keepin heifers in feeder condition through winter unless you breed in late winter. I have a neighbor that keeps all his animals fleshy all year, calves or cow's. Only way he does it is through input. Long story short he sold some bred heifers today for 1375.00 they...
