  1. Double R Ranch

    Had a cow processed

    Kill fee $175. We only have on ranch kill then it’s hauled to the locker. Different person/company from the locker. It was $0.90 a pound but due to “Covid” their boxes etc have skyrocketed and they had to up the per pound cost to compensate. $20 fee per 1/2 or 1/4 if the animal is split...

    Any Starlink users

    We did the pre order a few days ago. Anything has to be better than what we have now. YouTube reviews in remote areas are pretty impressive so far

    Canning

    @4hfarms So sorry to hear about your losses but very glad you’ve found some good in it. Sounds like your neighbors are a blessing. Hope you get your home rebuilt soon.

    Canning

    We aren’t sure when actual canning season for supplies is around here so we’ve been buying when we see stuff. Haven’t even planted to garden yet but have been canning a fair amount doing test batches trying recipes we are going to want to do when the garden does start producing. Just made beef...

    Cattle scales? Opinions? Thoughts?

    I have a trutest also. No extra power needed. Unit gets charged in the lab then taken out to the chute when in use. Load bars are bolted to the chute. We have had it a few years now and am pretty happy with it but had some problems in the beginning as the trutest was sold and the company who...

    Canning

    We have had to really work to get jars and lids. We only had a small amount from doing pickles in the past. Have also been looking at the Tattler lids for their ability to be reused in the future. We’re to new to this to know when supplies usually come in stock but we’ve definitely been reading...

    Canning

    Old thread but figured I’d revive it instead of starting another. We’re newer to canning. Really enjoying it. Anyone doing any canning anytime soon?

    AI School/Certification in California

    Check with UC Davis would be my next suggestion. I highly doubt with all the “lockdowns” here you’ll find a legit class going on right now in CA. But UC Davis might have an idea who you can talk to. You don’t need a certification to buy your tank, semen and supplies. You can get your supplies...

    AI School/Certification in California

    While I’m not up on the current classes “due to Covid” Select Sires in Turlock has offered AI classes in the past. Seems like it was once or twice a year. There aren’t many options in CA unfortunately. Check with Select and if they don’t have any they may direct you to someone who does. Theres...

    7 & 7 Synch protocol anyone using it?

    Thank you @WarEagle73 for the information! What breeding timing did you go with after signs of standing heat? 12 hours post first signs of standing? Definitely sounding like this is what we will be trying this season.

    7 & 7 Synch protocol anyone using it?

    Thanks for the update! Guess I’ll be giving it a go this time around. Sounds like it worked very well. Would love a preg rate update when the time comes.

    Angus Sires that Fix Utter Qualities?

    I don’t think so but I can look.

    Angus Sires that Fix Utter Qualities?

    He definitely has on our ranch. Dramatic improvements on some bad feet, bad udders and are docile. Very happy with them to date. Have a group that just weaned their first calves that are bigger weaning weights than we have had from heifers in many years. They raised whopper calves on dry...

    7 & 7 Synch protocol anyone using it?

    Haven’t tried this yet but will be reading up on it. Keep us posted on how it goes. We’ll be breeding in January and always open to try new methods. Thanks for the link/article

    AI Certification

    I absolutely recommend you still learning to do it. Other than the expense I don’t regret going to ET school either. It has all been the best for our ranch. Opened up so many options and I have always loved Repro work. Burlington Washington at another of select’s offices is where I ended up...

    AI Certification

    Select sires offers courses in Turlock sometimes. The COVID lock downs have had an effect on them for this year I’m sure. You’ll have a hard time finding any classes in CA other than that. I drove to Wash many years ago for my class because I missed the one they had in Turlock and no more were...

    Shooting Cow....

    This is very interesting. For the most part I’ve always just used a 22. Hadn’t really thought about having anything larger for this use. Have euthanized cattle, horses, and hogs off the top of my head with one with no issues. Having said that I haven’t been in a situation of an adrenaline fueled...
