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.
Just click on the topic to read it. Why not join the discussion?
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.

I used to think the writers for Portlandia were genius, now I see they are just good at observation. I love that show.

A handgun is for when you can't have a long gun. For home defence I prefer a long gun. With just me and the wife here and no neighbours. The ruger mini 14 stands in the corner. With kids in the house it was a shotgun with birdshot. Inside a house it will cut someone in half. But a couple sheets of drywall will render it harmless. Perfect house gun.
Pretty fair bet someone shot through center chest would be the same amount of dead. No matter what the round.
Home defense is another subject that is a Model 97 with a 20" modified barrel along with other assorted firepower if he be near or far.
I view a pistol as weapon of last resort when they are over the walls of the Alamo .
That is like these shootings if someone walks in with a rifle or shotgun you are outgunned from get go with a pistol. The difference your not just standing there holding your pecker.
People have watched too many movies as a pistol round is way underpowered compared to shotgun and your high powered rifle cartridges .
Pistol has its place for easy carry ,concealment and up close shtf.
Anyone who breaks into Caustic's house is in for quite the surprise
You're right Cypress. If they know him and break in- they're a fool. If they don't know him and break in- they're unlucky. Either case, I suspect they're both dead.
I enjoy Beretta 96. Carry sig P250 subcompact

Hard for one man to safely guard 100/200 acres 24/7/365.
You would have to form some kind of neighbor militia or have a big clan.
It would be a quick exodus as soon as the food ran out, read somewhere most majors cities only have enough food for three days with out incoming shipments.
I figure this is likely-not a negative type,but realistic like JMJ. I also agree o e fellow can't protect much on a decent sized scale. Hold his own castle for a while perhaps. I suspect, if it all falls apart, those folks in the city might have a hard time getting to country if fuel is an issue. Some will make it, but I hope not masses.

Eastern Redcedar Control - Bow Saw vs. Chainsaw (Do I need a Chainsaw)
by greybeard (Posted Sun, 26 Jun 2016 12:12:03 GMT+5)
New Bahco 10-30-23 (just got her yesterday - it's a she so I can be reminded that it was my wife's idea ONLY) worked great last night. As you said tree of that size took about a half hour, lot of cussing and sweating due in part to lots of delimbing, it being in the fence line, and cutting the trunk in two different spots, once around the middle to get rid of the top half of tree and then again at the bottom. Smaller diameter trees - 3, 4 inches - those go about as quick as a chainsaw once you get to the spot you can cut but you still got to get a hole (cutting off other limbs on one side of the tree) to get down just above the ground to cut. All in all I think chainsaw would be way faster but bowsaw not half bad on the littler trees.
So you bought a bow saw instead of a chain saw ..........................My sponsor says I should keep my mouth shut ![/quote]
Oh snap--I thought he had bought this kind of bow saw--never mind.......

I thought this was going to be about Rose throwing a fit because a Japenese MLB player wants to include his hits during his time playing in Japan. His combined hits in MLB and Japan would surpass Rose's hit record.....One of Rose's comments was "why not throw in his high school hits also".
Back on topic, agreed he's in when he's dead.

I would ask for a jury trial and have the pick from southeast Travis Co. Where all the red necks have moved too , since Austin has booted them out. One qualification would be is to have at lease 5 cars jacked up in the front yard grown up in weeds.

Poll(June) - "Church Buildings"

I worked a job down in Karne City once and the area around there is the original Polish settlement in Texas--1850s.
Panna Maria Church--the tall steeple was covered in what looked like copper sheet when I saw it--it's a tall one.
Not far from there is Cestohowa, another Polish settlement from the late 1800s. Their church. Evidently the Poles liked tall steeples.
Homemade Milking Machine

Resurrecting this old thread. Have any of you built your own? My wife and daughters are looking at machines for goats only. I think I can buy just the task specific components and build the system myself. If someone here already has the T-shirt, let me know. I'd like suggestions on how to, and also if you'd have done anything different.
Herd size varies between 30-40, but they only milk between 5 and 10 at a given time. Wife's fingers don't work like they used to.

Yes. still has a bit of limp but is fertile and I have him with a couple cows. I do have 300 straws on him so I can A-I if needed.
My thing Knersie is he seems to make great daughters but I have yet to be pleased with a son. But I have had only three sons I keep getting daughters. I do Have two more this spring that are sons but they don't look promising at this point. I will wait till Sept to cut them. But those sons are out of sub par cows I guess so hard to judge that. They cant all be keepers.

TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE TO IMPROVE FORAGE DIGESTION
At the cow/calf and stocker cattle level, production systems are generally built on forage production, pastures, hay, etc. For these operations forages provide the bulk of the nutrients needed for the animals. In many cases because of inadequate management or simply uncooperative weather patterns, forage quality is not suitable for the pasture and hays to maintain the type of digestibility needed for the animal to extract the needed nutrients.
