    Draxxin or Nyflor?

    I have a heifer that just got here (Texas) from Iowa last night, and this morning she has a cough and a runny nose. Eating, and otherwise looks okay, but I'm sure it's shipping fever. What is your drug of choice for this? I have Draxxin, Nyflor, Baytril and Micotil available. Thanks for...

    Slutty Heifer

    I'm pretty sure one of my show heifers snuck out and got in with the bull. She's nine months old, and there's a possibility she could be 3 months bred. What is the dosage for aborting her with Lutalyse please? Honestly.. the cows I can't get bred, but the one heifer I keep does. :?

    Feeding a Nurse Cow

    I have a 3 year old Jersey cross cow I'm using for a nurse cow. She's had one older (6 week calf) and now has a younger calf on her also. What would be a good diet for her? I'm feeding her twice a day. I have 12% sweet feed, 20% range cubes, cotton hull / seed feed (high energy) and a plain...

    Dodge Cummins Problem

    I have a 2004 1 ton that won't start in the cold. It's a fuel problem, but can't figure it out. The dealer says it's the injectors, which I don't believe. There's a check valve type deal with a bell fitting on one end, next to the fuel tank, going to a rubber line connecting to the fuel...

    Diesel vs. Gas

    We stopped by a dealership this afternoon to "walk off" a big Christmas dinner.. :) , and I was surprised to see on a Ford 3/4 ton, they are charging $7000K + for the option of a diesel engine over gas. So, this makes it actually worth more than that, as there would be a credit involved for...

    For those of you who are not "technically challenged" such as myself, can you please tell me the general difference between a "netbook" and a laptop? I'm trying to decide which is better for my 76 year old mother... and I may even spring for a new one myself. Every time I have to replace a...

    Simbrah Heifers

    I finally had a chance to take pictures of three Simbrah heifers (actually percentage.. they are 1/2 x 1/2's) I'm going to see if I can sell. Let me know what you think! They are 10 - 12 months of age.

    Just read that Fiat is planning on "phasing out" Dodge as we know it, and start introducing small cars they have been selling successfully in Europe instead. Yikes! Wonder what that means the future is going to be for the Dodge truck?? We have two, and I would be willing to bet that is the...
  11. TheBullLady


    Think this will be a contender?! She's barely 10 days old, but thought I'd post her up (since I got a decent picture of her) and see what y'all thought about her. She's a Simmental. (I'm a sucker for "chrome")

    Does anyone from Texas know of someone in the central Texas area that does dehorning? On Brahman influenced cattle? A friend that I sold a ranch to a few years back has Brahman cows running with Hereford bulls. He's trying to keep some of the good heifers to sell in a special sale, but the...

    Bank Closing - What to do?

    A question for you financially savvy folks! My mom called today and said she heard on the news that the bank she has her CD's in is "going under".. or going out of business, or some such. (I didn't hear it) She's all panicked now, and asked me if she should run over there tomorrow and take...

    Not Again!

    On the world news tonight there was another piece about cattle, how horribly they are being raised, how dirty they (and their meat) is... yada yada yada. Said Obama is making "animal welfare" a big part of his focus this year. I'd like to know how he's got time for that, with Iran and North...

    Question about Hay

    I was driving past a large stocker cattle operation this afternoon, and noticed they had just cut hay in one of the large "traps" they put newly purchased cattle in. Over the years I've seen plenty of sick and dead calves in that trap, and wondered if by baling the hay, is there a chance that...

    Went to a registered sale last Saturday, and they were about half the price of the same sale last year! The high selling lot last year was over $10K, this year $4500. Really good bred heifers were going for $1200 to $1400 average. Pretty sorry if you were selling.. good if you could afford to...
