Bull selection is the foundation for building a profitable beef herd. Approximately 88 percent of the genetic makeup of a herd after 10 years of breeding will have come from the bulls used.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- CIRCULAR CHATS
Hooter hated driving anywhere with lots of traffic, which was about anywhere on I-45, from about Sherman to south of Houston; anywhere on I-35 from South of San Antonio to Oklahoma City; anywhere on I-20 from…you get the notion.

RIGOROUS CULLING HELPS MAINTAIN EFFICIENT HERD
Which cows in your herd are making you money and who is losing you money? Every year, the cow-calf producer needs to critically evaluate each animal in the herd and decide if she is paying her upkeep
NOT TOO EARLY TO START "HEAT STRESS" DISCUSSION
A couple of weeks ago, here in Texas as well as numerous other locations across the US, temperatures bumped up into the 70's and even the 80's in some areas. This was in FEBRUARY! Granted, it has cooled back down but nonetheless it's already gotten warm in lots of locales across the country and will again very soon. That in mind, it's not too early to start the “heat stress” discussion and how this can affect animal performance. Heat stress is a major contributor to animal and production losses each year.

Classic Car Owner?
by dun (Posted Thu, 30 Mar 2017 05:04:20 GMT+5)
Through the years my only classics were a heavy tricked out 48 Merc with a speedshop built flat head V8, 1959 Alfa Romeo Guilleta Spider. When I rebuilt the original 1300cc engine in the Alfa huge chunks of devcon (JB Weld) fell out of the sides of the block. Replaced it with a newer 2000cc engine. It was faster in a straight line but never did corner/handle like the lighter engine made it. An NSU Prinz with the first Wankel engine (piece of crap). Currently a1931 Model A Ford Closed Cab Pickup



Pregnant Wedding

Agree. I care more about how they raise the kid and how they treat each other, than what colors they wear to the wedding (or, for that matter, whether there is a wedding). The days when couples were shamed, it usually hurt the kids most of all, and they didn't deserve it



New Coral Height???

A lot depends on the size of the cattle. Years ago Carnation Farms was big in the introduction and breeding of Polled Herefords. Their bull pens at Carnation Washington were built relatively low because that was all that was required for the Polled Herefords. When they got away from them and started using the pens for dairy bulls, primarily Jerseys, they ran into problems with bulls getting out of their own pen and going to another pen and fighting with the resident.
