IBEEF - Indiana Beef Evaluation and Economics Feeding Program IBEEF is a steer and heifer feedout program that provides Indiana producers with a way to place cattle on feed and gather performance, carcass, and economic information to make genetic and management improvements in their herd. Cooperators receive individual and group feedlot performance, feedlot costs, and individual and group carcass information, including quality and yield grade, ribeye area, fat thickness, carcass weight, etc. IBEEF also allows producers to compare sires, as well as evaluate alternative marketing strategies and their impact upon profitability. The program also helps to improve the reputation of producer cattle by establishing a database of feedlot performance and carcass merit on their calves. Visit Site for More

Don't know if there are any LH bulls over there. roped both for years. The corriente is the ideal roping steer if you can find the original. Even going to the border it is hard to find them anymore. The newer ones have been mainly have some crosses in them and many times it is hit and miss. The same can be said for LH's. You need to know your bloodlines and find the right ones. We had some that was very good and some that were very bad. Some of the best LH's I ever used were some beef type LH's. You had to buy them young. Feed them very little and they would only last a short while until they got too big but they were easy to handle and worked very good. You were right on many Corrientes being crossbreds. I've seen lots with Brahman ears and lots with Charolais influence.



Best Angus Bull for Replacement Heifers

I like Hoover Dam as well. Here is a 3rd calf cow and a second calf cow by him. They both have great dispositions.






Any Ideas?

Somebody I know had a similar issue and it turned out to be a bad BCM (body control module) and a bad TCM (transmission control module). There is a TSB from GM floating around about aftermarket electronics causing the issues.

Spraying 10% permethrin on cattle
by boondocks (Posted Fri, 26 May 2017 21:36:14 GMT+5)
We've mixed permethrin with diesel and we've mixed it with mineral oil (in a pump sprayer). They don't like the diesel and are harder to hit with it, as the smell chases them off faster. But the flies hate it more as well, and it seems to last longer than mineral, so we end up using whatever's on hand.



Cow Sell
by pricefarm (Posted Fri, 26 May 2017 21:34:25 GMT+5)
There was a special cow sell today at the regular cattle sell. One man sold his herd of around 50 cow calf pairs. All of them was black or black white face cows. The oldest cow was 7 years old. Most of the calves where around 2 months old. They sold really good I thought cheapest one was $1600 up to $2000. They averaged around 1800$ They where a nice group of home raised cows.



A few Simmentals

Thanks -
Nice, really stout, clean fronted little January. You will have fun with her. I have some Beef Maker cows in the herd - really nice, good uddered. This heifer is probably the cleanest fronted BM I ever had. She's due in January to Classified.

i had my cows get out and instead of actually keeping them off the road or trying to turn them.. people were stopped taking cell phone videos. bunch of idiot yuppies
Pull that crap down here and you'll be in jail and your livestock will be at the sale barn next week. Check might cover your fines but won't rebuild your reputation.

x10. Not the "idiot yuppies" fault your cows got out and if they don't know anything about "turning" cows I sure would rather them take a video than try to "help" and get them running into the next county. And personally, I wouldn't tell animal control that "I'll feed them next week if I feel like it" when they are there to investigate me for (supposedly) not feeding my animals. Seems a bit ill-advised to goad them, however much one might want to....

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?”
IT'S THE PITTS -- HOW TO LOAD A HORSE
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.

ALABAMA BCIA ANNOUNCES PUREBRED PRODUCER OF THE YEAR

LAST YEAR'S DROUGHT MAY AFFECT THIS YEAR'S HAY
Starkville, Miss. -- Last year's drought will likely affect this year's hay acreage in Mississippi.
IT'S THE PITTS -- MY FAVORITE FIRES
First, let me state for the record that I am NOT a cowboy poet. I don't have the mustache or the wardrobe for it.
HAVE PLAN IN PLACE WHEN UNEXPECTED COW LOSS OCCURS
It happens. If you own cattle, at some point you will drive out in the pasture and you'll find one with all four feet in the air, or maybe very close to it.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- CONSUMERS ARE DRIVING PACKER CHANGES
Ultimately, consumers determine what enters and exits the harvest facilities of the nation's largest meat packers. Consumer demand determines which meats they'll consume in terms of quantity and price, or if they'll consume meat at all.
CONTROL FLIES TO AVOID PINKEYE PROBLEMS
We were fortunate this year to have quite a mild winter in the southeast. The grass is growing and we are getting some much-needed rain to fill the ponds that dried up during last year's drought. Unfortunately, along with warmer weather come the flies and various problems associated with the little pests. Severe fly infestations have been associated with increased incidence of pinkeye, or infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK).
