New York Beef Producer's Association
The NYBPA is a group of beef producers dedicated to working together for the improvement of the beef industry.
Never before in the history of the cattle industry has it been more important for you to stand up and be counted as a member of the New York Beef Producers' Association.
The pressures and influences from outside our industry are so varied and dangerous that no individual cattle producer - large or small - can possibly handle them alone. But working together, we can make a difference!
These are a few of the
topics being discussed on the Q&A Boards.

CattleToday's Q & A Boards are a Cattle Forum for swapping information and asking and answering questions about breed, health problems, beginners questions and jokes about cattle and horses.

There was a distinct sound made when hitting the nails with a hammer kinda of like whang whang whang with each hammer hit.. That was nails from long ago. The last nails like that was some nails made in Austria that I bought years ago. The nails now are so limber the wind will blow them over.

convert FEL to quick attached?
by jltrent (Posted Mon, 19 Mar 2018 05:49:49 GMT+5)
You probably could find the attachment for your loader, as they are expensive. I would measure my loader good at the width/end, take some pictures and go to some auctions. If you can find a bracket that mounts the same width and hooks to you cylinders right it probably want cost you over $300-$400 for the bracket. Then get a quick attach plate and weld on you loader bucket and other attachments. You can get some nice heavy skid steer plates for $100-$125 free shipping from Ebay delivered to you door step.

You can still get the hay from the 12 acres. Just realize you will have to supplement it.

I feel your pain. We're calving out 31 this year, but we've calved out as many as 60, but average around 25 every spring.
Its been too quiet in our heifer pasture the past few days. I'm guessing we have around 10 left to calve.
I cringe when I see people who think its best to start out in the cattle business with heifers. I just shake my head.......

New to AI
by kilroy60 (Posted Mon, 19 Mar 2018 04:31:21 GMT+5)
For a few years, we had a friend of ours that lived a few miles away that AI'd for us. We would put in the CIDR's, give all shots and watch for when they would come in heat. Friend would either come out or we would take the cow to his farm when they would be ready to breed. We would order semen and he would store in his tank for us. We've now taken AI course and are doing all ourselves.
I Gotta Get Better

Thanks, but a little to big. I went out to the farm @ 3:00 and I don't think she ever got up to nurse. Her front legs aren't working, so I'm thinking the shoulders are out of joint. She's in the bed of my truck at the moment waiting on the vet to open. He doesn't do after hours.
This will surely test

PRODUCERS USE SEVERAL EFFICIENCY MEASURES TO MANAGE BEEF HERDS
