F1 Herd Bull Selection

My main goal would be to retain any heifers for replacements.

I've seen 3/4 Brahman 1/4 Hereford heifers sell for as much as pure Brahman heifers in Church Point, Louisiana.

If you do it and have extra heifers for sale pm me. Might grab a few steers for slaughter, too.

You could actually make a decent profit borrowing the bull because the heifers would sell for a good price. If you slaughtered the steers right off the teat you would have good freezer beef. Buying a decent Angus bull would be the best move but with 15 cows that would eat up all your profits.

People are always paying for my daughters food when she eats out. Even most restaurants of give them a cut on their bill. She works nights. One day a young girl ran out of a group that was doing something to give my daughter some cookies. She was sitting in her patrol car. Its nice to know that people do, some people, respect the job they do....

Cottage devon. Cottage is a breeder it seems. I just make him out for the most part, except when he gets giggly. Still a lot of irish and scot accents around these parts.

I agree. If he can get the red one bought reasonable and has the feed and time he could develop him and likely get his money back even if he doesn't make the cut later.

Jersey Cow/New Calf/ Area of Milk Bag Hardening
by francismilker (Posted Sat, 23 Sep 2017 00:14:59 GMT+5)
Old post I know but I want to jump in with my two cents.

Some of my jerseys will have hard quarters when they first freshen. This mainly because the calf is only sucking the front two due to easy access and are getting more than enough milk. These hard quarters will soften up and come into milk if you keep stripping them out in my case. It's just a few days to make happen.

How did she end up doing?



Saved the worst for last.

We have also found that if the cow doesn't have a chance to get to her dead calf that it seems to be easier to get her to take a graft. If she has tried to lick it and get it to "come alive" or even if it was alive then died, I nearly always take it away, out of sight, skin the dead calf and make sure the new "graft" calf has had at least one bottle of milk from the momma that I want to take the calf, then put them together in 12 hours or so when the calf is hungry again. The cows are able to tell if the calf is "theirs" by the smell and if their own milk has gone through the new calf, the manure smells right.
And often, I get lucky and after not having her calf for 12 or more hours, many of our cows have taken a new calf once it gets latched onto the teat, with little or no fuss at all.

Since I have several jerseys and guernseys and crosses, I put extra calves on them and the best way is to keep the new calves I want to graft with the cows own calf, and let them all go on the cow at the same time and in a few milkings they will let them all nurse with a minimum of fuss. So if I have 2 fresh cows, their calf and the extra one or two will be kept in a separate pen so they all stay together and become like the bobbsy twins; I have one cow now that has her calf and 2 holsteins and I call them the 3 musketeers.... I bring the cows in to the stall twice a day and give them some grain and once the calves figure out that their milk wagon has arrived, they go right on the cow and we are set. Have had an odd cow over the years that didn't want to take a calf but not often.



Heifer calves out of younger bull .
by farmerjan (Posted Fri, 22 Sep 2017 23:30:51 GMT+5)
We do have one angus bull that does throw about 75% bull calves, but the others have been making up for it with heifers. This bull has been with us a long time and has always thrown predominantly bull calves all his life. Nice calves too....



Wanna know how to slow down time
by Bigfoot (Posted Fri, 22 Sep 2017 23:17:45 GMT+5)
Take a cross country car trip with a chain smoker. That'll slow things down.
Go on a 3 day hiken trip in a pair of cheap plastic cowboy boots.



weaning early..5 mos
by farmerjan (Posted Fri, 22 Sep 2017 23:11:11 GMT+5)
If they are eating grain and hay, and not walking fences bawling for momma, then they should do fine. It's the weaning early and them not eating well that will really hit them. Think about it, most dairies keep the calves on milk for only 6-12 weeks at most. The calf is eating 2% of it's body weight in grain, as well as getting going on hay when it is weaned off the bottle. NOT saying this is ideal, but if they are eating then they can get enough nutrition from the grain and the hay will help stimulate the rumen, and they will grow. We usually wean our beef calves in the 6-9 month range; depending on the cows' condition, pasture conditions, market prices, whether we have to move cows or other circumstances but we have weaned as early as 5 months. It is just a whole lot easier and less costly to leave them on the cow if pasture grass, and body condition of the cow, is adequate.
Sounds like they are doing fine for you; hope you find another sale.

Going to try with my 46 hp 4wd. If that don't work i have a 120 hp that should work.
Fortunately rocks are few and far between in my place. Shouldn't hit any. Only wanting to go 4 or 5 inches deep. Not even gonna try right now, no rain for five weeks ground is hard as a rock.

EARLY WEANING BENEFITS FIRST-CALF COWS
Summer heat can be hard on pastures, cows and calves, especially first-calf cows. These cows are in a special class as they are still trying to maintain body condition, actively grow, support reproduction by gestating with her second calf, and lactating.
PRODUCT HANDLING IS CRITICAL TO HERD HEALTH SUCCESS
The cow-calf production unit is the basis for the entire beef industry. The production of quality calves requires strict attention to the health of all calves, cows and bulls in the facility.
HYDRAULIC CALF TABLES MAKE LIVESTOCK HANDLING EASIER
Chutes and calf tables have made livestock handling easier—on the animals, and for the people doing the job, whether branding, castrating, dehorning, implanting calves, etc.
IT'S THE PITTS -- RATTLED
Despite having lived in, or near, rattlesnake country my entire life I've never known anyone who actually got bit by one, let alone got bit and lived to tell the tale. Until now, that is.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE BUYING BULLS
As the bull-buying season gets underway, commercial cattlemen should do their homework to help ensure the bull(s) they purchase this year meet their needs.
PREWEANING CALF MANAGEMENT PRACTICES ADD VALUE TO FEEDERS
The concept of a value added calf (VAC) program is not new today, but in the late 1980's it was thought to have little value in some circles.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- NO WORSTER
LeRoy was ancient. The lines in his face looked deep enough to hide in. His hair, mostly silver now, was still thick; his black eyes continued to sparkle with mischief.
DO HOMEWORK BEFORE HEADING INTO BULL BUYING SEASON
When it comes to genetics, bull selection is the most important decision the cow-calf producer has to make.
BLACK INK -- WEIGHING PREVENTION
Sometimes it only takes a couple of 2-cc subcutaneous shots to head off problems down the line. Sometimes it takes a few tons of steel, careful planning and focused construction.
WEANING IS CRITICAL TIME IN CALF'S LIFE
As we enter the fall months, weaning time is at hand for most spring calving herds. This is the exciting time of year when producers are able to reap the benefits of a year's worth of work and planning.
FALL CALVING SEASON MAY YIELD HIGHER RETURNS FOR S.E. PRODUCERS
The vast majority of cow-calf producers in Tennessee and the Southeast using a defined calving season have long favored spring calving; however, researchers at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture have evaluated the risk and returns for a fall calving season, proving once again that timing is everything.
HAVING A VACCINATION PLAN IS IMPORTANT TO HERD HEALTH
To begin, I do not believe it is appropriate to recommend "cookie cutter" vaccination programs. Your vaccine program must be developed with your risks and expectations in mind.
PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS TO KEEP COWS PREGNANT
Getting cows bred is only part of the story. Keeping them bred, especially through the summer months, also takes attention to detail.
START PLANNING FOR HEIFER DEVELOPMENT
Even in this current, somewhat depressed, cattle market, replacement females for the Florida commercial cow herd are an annual expense of approximately $400 million. Development and selection of the best females to join a productive herd is one of the most challenging aspects of a beef operation, and two of the keys for success, not surprisingly, are: 1) start early and 2) have a plan. Weaning time is not far off.
HAVE A PLAN WHEN MAKING CULLING DECISIONS
When culling cows, it is important to have a plan, and this should include pregnancy testing and closely evaluating every cow.
