Kentucky Cattle


Kentucky, the largest cattle producing state east of the Mississippi River, is home to over 1.1 million beef cows and ranks 5th nationally in total number of farms. Three-fourths of Kentucky's cows are on farms with fewer than 100 head. The Kentucky Cattlemen's Association, has 93 chapters in 120 counties and is a strong voice for the state's 40,000 + cattle producers.

KCA's mission is to provide a strong, proactive voice for all of Kentucky's Beef Farm Families, serve as a resource for information and education for producers, consumers and the industry and be a catalyst for enhancing producer profitability.

In 2005 Kentucky began registering farms with premises numbers for the National Animal Identification program. A 'premises' is the geographically unique location in which agricultural animals are raised, held or boarded including farms, feedyards, ranches, auction barns, and fair sites.

Vaginal prolapse
by lithuanian farmer (Posted Sat, 25 Feb 2017 16:50:47 GMT+5)
Have one cow which is on 275th day of pregnancy with not complete vaginal prolapse. When she lays down a pretty big size "ball" comes out. When she stands up it comes back in but it's coming out abit more and comes in slower recently. It's happening for the second week and she shouldn't calve for ~2 weeks. It was happening for the past two years but the size of the "ball" was maybe 2-3 times smaller and it would start coming out only a few days before calving. This year she will have a calf by another bull. She already was on the cull list for this year after weaning the calf.
What would be your thoughts what could be done to prevent a full prolapse? One person suggested stitching, but not really sure if it'll hold well. What we think is that we need to force her calve sooner with some medicine. Will try to take a photo tomorrow how everything looks when she lays down, but it's pretty bad looking.

Take a look at who has been investigating and breaking this story. NYT, same outfit that broke the story on the whole "emails" thing. Just wanted to point that out, since they are sometimes attacked on CT.

All vets recommend Science Diet (They also sell it). That way SD can advertise "Vet Recommended". Doesn't mean it's that good. I honestly haven't looked at a bag lately but last time I did look corn was the first ingredient listed then a bunch of by-products. Not near the quality they would want you to think it is.

I was in a vets office the other day picking up a friends dog and they had a special bag of SD all natural no grain whatever else bs. Hate to know what that cost.
If it was a full size bag probably in the $50 range +/- a few dollars.

You're selling bulls and didn't even know the epd basics?

Don't worry, I won't take it as promotion.

Ouch. That's silly to pay that.

The consensus was that homosexuality (and probably now the transexuality) think is little more than a conscious decision made by the individual because of their inability to fit into their actual and real "sex". They decide to be homosexual and hang out with people that think the same way. Gives them a sense of security and acceptance. A mutual admiration society I guess you could say.

That's their right and I'm good with it, just don't try and jam that crap down my throat. The transgender bs and using the bathroom of your choice or whatever sex you relate to is just wrong.

heifer with stiff back legs when gets up
by rockinw (Posted Sat, 25 Feb 2017 13:13:24 GMT+5)
I have a heifer that was born 12/27/16, 83#, unassisted. She's a MAB. She's having issues with her back legs. She gets up fine, takes a couple of steps then goes into a peg leg mode. When she stands she stretches her back legs and seems like her legs don't want to work together. She's always been a little off so to say. Has her tognue sticking out alot. She eats good and is a good size calf.
We've given her bo-se at birth, then did mu-se 1xweek for 2 weeks. We are not selinum deficient.
Any suggestions as to what may be causing this? Could it be a pinched nerve or neurologic?

So how do you do it

This is how we do it. This year we will have had about 35 head on 2+ acres for about 6 months. Will level and put something annual in for mid-summer forage when our cool season grasses slow some, then put our pasture mix in after a fall cover crop.

chemical fescue seedhead suppression

Has anyone attempted this, and how did it work out?


Hooter was feeling lucky. He bought the set of calves because they were cheap enough, and he had some wheat pasture for them. But being able to sell them into an up market with solid gain as the grazing ran thin was more chance than plan. He knew that, but he also couldn't help feeling just a tiny bit proud.
The first use of artificial insemination was accomplished by Arab Sheiks who wanted to utilize bloodlines of tribal enemies. They would sneak up to the other tribe's herd at night with a mare in heat secretly collect semen from the stallion into a leather pouch and take it back to their own camp to inseminate a prize mare.
Artificial insemination (AI) offers cattle producers the opportunity to use semen from high-accuracy, genetically superior sires at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a herd bull with similar genetics.
There are many pros and cons of being me. The pros are I have a wonderful wife and a wonderful life, while my biggest cons are a sickly body and a terrible name.
It's always a good idea to have a breeding soundness evaluation and semen check for any bull you plan to use—not only for bulls you purchase, but also the bulls you kept over from last year.
As cattle producers one of our main tasks in day-to-day and overall management is providing for the nutritional requirements of the herd.
Unseasonably warm temperatures and dry weather didn't dampen the enthusiasm of 142 registered buyers from nine US States, Mexico and Australia who gathered at Salacoa Valley Farms, Fairmount, Ga.
Predictions swirling around for 2017 include very little improvement for beef prices and the possibility of some extended drought conditions in some regions. That means that every serious manager facing this possible scenario had better be looking for ways to manage on both sides of the ledger.
