Advanced planning can help producers minimize the loss of animal lives and the health problems associated with all disasters. Due to the vulnerability of Louisiana to hurricanes and their potential to cause widespread damage due to high winds and flooding, hurricane preparedness is essential. And much of the disaster preparation for hurricanes will also help prepare for other disasters, such as fire, hazardous material spills, animal disease outbreaks, etc. It must be stressed that although help may be available from many sources following a disaster, producers themselves are ultimately responsible for the welfare of their animals and should prepare accordingly. Well in advance of a potential disaster situation, producers should evaluate their herd health programs with their veterinarian. Cattle that undergo evacuation either before or after a disaster will be stressed and are likely to be commingled with other cattle. Herd biosecurity will be breached, which makes increasing herd immunity imperative. Pneumonia and abortions should be anticipated and can be minimized with proper herd nutrition and vaccinations. Animal identification is also important. If cattle get evacuated and commingled, or escape and are later captured, it�s essential to be able to identify the herd of origin through brands or tags. Many cattle look alike, and plain numbered dangle tags and tattoos can be duplicated. So if cattle aren�t branded, producers should identify the farm or ranch on the dangle tag or tattoo, or use electronic identification that is unique to each individual animal. Pictures and/or videos of cattle may also help identify cattle later. ...more

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.

You must be affected by the same system going through here.

The yield on hay is down about 30 percent or more here. Everyone is talking about the low yield.

I am getting the same yield per acre as usual however I haven't been able to cut like I normally do and am no where near where I should be with hay baled... I am helping my hay guy more this year to try to get it done.

I think Cross needs some psychiatric attention. Got way too many personalities.

Of the many things I'm lacking personality is probably what I'm lacking the most.
I self medicate in the evenings after work.
After about a 6 pack I'm all good
No you just get confused about which one is in charge "today".

It just kills me to see those flys wearing them out so I'm going to do something.

What oil would you recommend me to add to the sprayer? And how much of it?

Good for you. I cannot relax myself if I know my cows are miserable.

I have never used 10 % so I don't know what you dilute it with.

A new chemical compound- H 2 O

Seriously, the rubs work great with a mixture of diesel and 10 per cent.Mix according to label.Ultra Boss is good,too.
