The Mississippi Beef Cattle Improvement Association (MBCIA) focuses on promoting performance records and encouraging good management practices while cooperating with other like-minded organizations to emphasize the economic importance of beef cattle production in Mississippi. Headquartered in Starkville, Mississippi, the association utilizes Mississippi State University through research and education to promote the beef cattle industry nationally. MBCIA is a member of the national Beef Improvement Federation where S.R. Evans, Jr. from Greenwood, MS served as Past-President in 2005. MBCIA hosted the Beef Improvement Federation annual meeting for the first time in its near forty-year history in Philadelphia, MS in April 2006.
The MBCIA encourages the production and identification of genetically superior animals by purebred breeders and promotes the purchase and use of these animals by commercial producers through various sale offerings.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- SQUIRRELED AWAY
Hooter's old friend, Uncas Bingelmeyer was usually more carefree than the owner of a new credit card at a discount store. Today, though, he watched the scenery speed by as if they were approaching doom instead of Tulsa.
PLAN PROPERLY TO MANAGE YEARLING HEIFER BREEDING
Developing and breeding yearling heifers can be equally rewarding and frustrating. The process is too timely and costly to land anywhere short of success. The technology around estrus synchronization continues to evolve and improve. However, the best protocols alone are not enough to create high pregnancy rates. It requires meticulous planning to properly execute the synchronization protocol and nutrition programs. It all matters when fighting for a few percentage points.
WELL-DESIGNED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM REQUIRES PLANNING
Every business has (or should have) a means of measuring and analyzing the various factors that play a role in overall performance and profitability as well as to help in decision making. Cattle operations are no different.
LOOK FOR SIGNS TO REDUCE AND HANDLE HEAT STRESS
Warmer temperatures are quickly approaching, and that means livestock producers should start considering how to help their animals handle the heat.
BLACK INK -- ARE WE THERE YET?
We were bringing a little preschool friend out to our house for the afternoon. She was a town kid and about every three miles, she'd ask, Are we ALMOST there?

Here is the correct way to load a horse.
GIVE YOUNG WILDLIFE SPACE TO GROW
Spring is a glorious time of year. Flowers and leaves are not the only signs of new life. Plenty of food and warmer weather make this the perfect time for wildlife to mate and raise their offspring.
BLACK INK -- ARE YOU ON TRACK?
Biology says it takes two years from the day you breed cows till their calves can be harvested for beef or join the breeding herd to calve as two-year-olds. Decisions before, after and during any two-year span can make a big difference.

Well done! That little girl will always remember you.
'How' she remembers him is another question, especially how she relates her experience with him in contrast to the rest of society ..
Hopefully she won't think that same level of behavior is to be expected by the majority of society should she elect to enter the food service sector later in life.
I know how things work in that sector, and have come to accept it but honestly, I just don't understand a lot of the aspects or thinking involved in it. Might comment further on it later. (my wife has worked as a waitress earlier in our relationship and made good $$ at it. It was hard work, but work is never supposed to be a walk in the park)
SS Shorthorn Bull Question

Both fit the CE/LBW criteria, and accuracies are pretty good, considering the breed.
Early on, there was no way I'd have considered using Gauge, but his MCE epd has seen major improvements...
Looks like Select has two pretty solid Shorthorn candidates in their lineup now.
