    Show me your herd bull

    Gizmom, That is obviously not a new picture, because the mud isnt up to his flank.. Do you ever remember this much rain in July without a hurricane.. I know people are struggling elsewhere but my goodness I wish it would quit for a week.. I think yesterday was the 2nd day this month without...

    Bred Heifers

    Elkwc, Here is one of the Growth fund heifers. You can see they still are carrying alittle hair still. Pretty good heifers otherwise.

    Bred Heifers

    ken, this is a commercial sale. 250 to 350 bred heifers per year.. not marked individually but sold in pens of 2 to 5. these will probably sell in 3 pens of 3. they will be broken up by either age, size, calving date, or pedigree. i see this group being split into 3 groups, 2 groups of...

    Bred Heifers

    both the growth funds are in the keeper pen. both bred ai first service. if they are big enough they have a nice look to them. the heifers have been big enough the steers, not so much.. breed them to really big and really slick cows.. hair can be a problem from what i see. i used him last...

    Bred Heifers

    Here are a few more.. Just for entertainment purposes.. all but the 001, 007 and 025 are half sisters.. Probably one of the weakest ones. I think she is still pretty good. Tag 037 020 and 035 007 shows her depth of better..

    Bred Heifers

    The ones pictured probably are nicer than the 2 AI sired ones. But the AI sired ones are better than the ones not pictured.. (Probably) In a perfect world I keep all the AI sired and sell the naturally sired heifers. After trying to build up numbers we are close to where we want to be so I let...

    AI vs Natural Service

    Butch, You forgot the 500lb bull calves would already passed a BSE and be presold for $6000... :) Your last sentence is exactly what we should all do.. I try and use bulls that I have seen with my own (non-expert) eyes, or have seen at least a few calves in environments/Management...

    Top Dollar Angus

    so my understanding is pap is about heart health and fescue tolerance is about the endocrinological system.. so different systems. now good pap cattle should be better in the stress of a feedlot situation.. the fat vs muscle deal is outside fat not inside fat (marbling) once again my...

    My experience with Angus

    Thank you for the kind words, first of all we are not in the same league with Gizmom and WBVS58.. To sit here and say we didnt have some hiccups with both purchased and bred cattle would be a lie. We have bought bulls from one outfit for 20 years now.. (I am betting you could guess who)...

    Top Dollar Angus

    I was gonna ask the same question that U4411clb asked. I got to thinking about it and most carcass cattle when I think of those kind of cattle do at least come from the fescue belt so they should slick off. I would like to know what the pedigree looked like, at sire and MGS..

    Top Dollar Angus

    Thanks for the article J+. Really nice read, honestly surprised the difference was that great. Amazing you can move that many to Prime in one generation. Having fed out a few Enhance cattle I should not have been surprised. They marble exceptionally well in relation to other current AI sires...

    SS Niagara son

    In my experience (very limited) the HP EPD is real. 3 Niagara heifers went in the replacement pen only one came out bred. only had one other open heifer out of 19.. Neighbors seem to have good luck with him, however.
