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

WATER IN THE WINTER

Not that it's funny but I had to laugh. We had 3" of rain last weekend and I was totally shocked to see one of our bred heifers drinking out of a filthy pool of water right next to the stock tank. You know, the filthy pool of water they stand, pee & poo in while they (or at least the others) are drinking the good stuff. What the??

Yeah, it makes me cringe every time I see that. I once had a vet tell me that they prefer "flavored water".



Can cow with no uterus go into heat?

If the ovaries are present I would assume the hormones are still released, so heat would still happen.



Jersey bull on first timers
by Workinonit Farm (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 18:59:27 GMT+5)
Yes, many people have put jersey bull on first timers and had success with them.

I, however, am not one of them, therefore I have no pictures.

Cowboy sorry I misread your question....had last night's parade on my mind.....More than anything just a pro-abortion/anti Trump rally. Who knows who's paying. Said they were from all over the country. I assume they paid their own way but who knows. Who cares.

fix this (cast iron)
by tater74 (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 18:36:44 GMT+5)
Heat it up, high nickel rod, beat on it whiles it cools to relieve the stress



Well that was a new one for me - think you could figure it out?
by TCRanch (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 18:34:01 GMT+5)
The previous owners of our ranch would fix a fence, throw the wire on the ground. If they replaced a strand they would bury it - eventually it surfaces, rusted & deteriorated. We've been hit by 2 tornadoes in the past 5 years (primarily the barnyard area). We have a giant magnet on wheels with a handle (coolest thing ever) but when a tornado throws debris over a mile away it is absolutely not possible to pick up all the nails, metal, tin, shavings, limbs, etc. We also have a freakin' ton of rocks (the majority limestone) on the ranch, there was even a rock quarry until the early 90's. Don't forget the damage a honey locust thorn can do. And I've already ranted on the glass but bears repeating. All can contribute to hardware. We've learned the hard way. BTW cows will eat anything, not necessarily by choice - if it's on the ground & they're grazing they may inadvertently pick it up.



Charolais Health
by BK9954 (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 17:59:56 GMT+5)
It seems that people with charolais around me always have problems with pinkeye in adults and pneumonia in their calves. They are always talking about battling it, so it seems. Is this the case with others? Is this possibly due to central Tx? At the last few sales there have been a lot of charolais heifers for sale. Been thinking about grabbing one or two to see how my bull does making smokies. The smokies were going pretty good today. Any opinions?

Bull for Charolais Heifers
by OzssieDave19 (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 17:04:42 GMT+5)
Thanms for your post Kenny Thomas. My background is Angus cattle on a family farm dad had the best and only breed. Now i am out playing around, i have joined a handfull of Black baldy heifers to my bosses Australian style LBW easy calving Char bull and will get some calves in the next week he assured me it would be fine but its a bit of a worry as the old timers say never put Char on heifers i guess i will see soon.



Always Something
by Caustic Burno (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 16:58:35 GMT+5)
Noticed the bull limping on the left rear leg after last nights hail storm.
Put him in the chute can't find anything visibly wrong. Hopefully he stepped in a hole or just got whacked and is just stove up. He has got a week or so if I can't find something or he isn't improving off to Mc Donalds we go.



Redhill B571 Julian 1W
by bigbluegrass (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 16:56:18 GMT+5)
Baldie Maker wrote:Bluegrass don't be dissuade so easily from 1W, if he didn't have any merit he wouldn't of been bought and used in the Buffalo Creek Red Angus Program. You're location says Northern KY so I'll say it's safe to assume you're on fescue pasture; the Redhill Program is based around western genetics that thrive on fescue; particularly endophyte infected KY31.
I have no personal experience with the bull and he hasn't been used to the best of my knowledge at Redhill either, but tracking the VF program because of the bull those cattle seemed to be very light in color which with our reds seem to help with earlier shedding and staying in the sun longer into the day.
The Cherokee Canyon cow behind this bull is a real power cow and has been flush many ways successfully especially when bred to calving ease bulls from beckton. Her hair is extremely good in that she sheds early every year and does a very good job of transferring that to her progeny. Her dam is the Cornerstone of the Barmaid cow family at Red Hill and her influence is spread throughout the herd; her hair and adaptability to KY was extremely good.
While I don't know that I'd use this bull particularly I wouldn't use unproven western bulls and gamble on all the unknows when a program of such quality exists within a few hours driving time.
Don't hesitate to call Bart, Sarah, or Gordon Jones as they would love to talk cattle with you; they have semen for sale on many of their herdsires and a sale the third Saturday in March.

link to the semen for sale page as well as email and home phone for bart and sarah posted below.

Thanks for your input Baldie Maker! It is nice to hear from someone who has used some of Red Hill Farms genetics. It sounds like you are happy with them.

Yes, I am in fescue country! If I used 1W, his female offspring would be on predominately KY31 fescue pasture. I know Red Hill is in fescue country, so that has weighed heavily in their favor. I haven't really had any problems with any of my cows and the fescue, but I would hate to use a bull that threw daughters that did have a problem. I don't know how likely that is to happen, but I bet it would not happen with Julian 1W offspring...



Stayability EPD Value ?
by City Guy (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 16:39:27 GMT+5)
I think I remember that in the Red Angus it is an estimate of the cow's (Or bull's daughters')ability to produce 6 or more calves in her(their) life time.



What are you eating today?
by Jogeephus (Posted Sat, 21 Jan 2017 16:36:06 GMT+5)
Its rye bread. With seeds. For a reuben it has to be rye in my view. Buttered and toasted. The contrast in textures and flavors just does it for me.

IBBA ANNUAL MEETING TO BE HELD FEBRUARY 10-11, 2017
The International Brangus Breeders Association's (IBBA) 2017 Annual Meeting & Convention is scheduled for February 10-11 in San Antonio, Texas.
DEBTER HEREFORD FARM HOLDS 44TH ANNUAL SALE
Debter Hereford Farm's 44th Annual Production Bull Sale was held, October 22nd, at the farm in Horton, Alabama.
TAKING A LOOK AT 2017 FOR CATTLE PRODUCERS
It's time to drag out the trusty crystal ball and take a look at what 2017 has in store for the beef cattle industry. For this to make sense we need to consider where we came from and how we got to where we are.
IT'S THE PITTS -- CATTLE TRAITING
Expected progeny differences (EPD's) have done wonders in improving the quality of our cattle. My only problem with EPD's is there aren't enough of them for traits that I'm most interested in.
HUNTIN' DAYLIGHT -- FEWER AND BIGGER
Whether the proverbial chicken or egg, another round of agricultural consolidation appears to be spurred along by suppliers dealing with narrow margins.
BLACK INK -- MAKING THE MOST OF IT
“Suppose we could only make 1 million cars. If the auto industry was limited for some reason, what would they do? Would they make small, cheap vehicles or big, premium, expensive cars?” An industry observer asked that question at a cattle feeders meeting this summer.
LATE WEANING HELPS AVOID EFFECTS OF HARSH WINTER
A growing number of stockmen are calving later in the year (April, May or June) rather than early, to be more in tune with nature. They have green grass at calving time and less need for harvested forage when the cow's nutritional needs are peaking during lactation.
NEW VETERINARY FEED DIRECTIVE TAKE EFFECT JANUARY 1, 2017
As of January 1, 2017, beef producers must comply with the new rule regarding use of antibiotics in feed. This rule is aimed at better management of certain antibiotics considered medically important to humans—putting them under more veterinary supervision. This is part of a larger movement to minimize development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

HEALTHY SOIL AIDS GRASS AND ANIMAL VIGOR
Dung beetles, earthworms and pollinators are the good guys when it comes to the health of soil and grassland resources.
RESEARCHERS DEVELOP NEW WHITE CLOVER
Researchers at The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation and University of Georgia (UGA) have developed a new white clover variety called Renovation to help agricultural producers improve and maintain healthy, productive pastures.
IT'S THE PITTS -- WISE BEYOND HIS YEARS
My shrewd buddy Everett came by for a visit today. I haven't seen him for awhile because he's been hauling stock, driving his John Deere and learning how to operate a backhoe.
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO HOOTER MCCORMICK -- MOM'S CHRISTMAS MEMORIES
Christmas Eve was always celebrated at a little two-room country school called Bethel School House out in the middle of Greggs' pasture.
CALVING IS VERY IMPORTANT TIME IN PRODUCTION YEAR
For the cow-calf operation, the main goal is for each breeding female to produce a healthy calve once per year. That said, in the typical cow-calf operation, calving is, without a doubt one of the most important periods of the entire production year.
EPDS PROVIDE THE MOST ACCURATE SELECTION METHOD
Selecting beef cattle based on expected progeny difference (EPD) values provides the most accurate selection method currently available to beef producers for economically important traits.

WILL IONOPHORES BE AFFECTED BY REGULATION CHANGES?
An ionophore is a feed additive used in beef cattle rations to improve feed efficiency and animal gains.
