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

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.

No. But ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and FOX all live in the 487 counties. No one in those networks can relate to people living in the 2, 626 counties. They're out of touch.

Hollywierd intended for Duck Dynasty to be another Beverly Hills type sitcom. They do not understand why the heartland likes the Robertson family. They do not understand a man's word being his bond. That is the people informing America and they think we are idiots.

Superbowl commercials are going to cost a whole lot more than Oscar commercials. There is reasoning behind that.

I'm not a Duck Dynasty fan (I like my ignorance served straight up, without a homophobe chaser), but I do agree that it's hard for people who work in the cities to fully understand rural folks (and of course vice versa). Do you feel that boards like this help? What about community chat rooms/message boards?
Anyone else have a local Topix online community? We do but it's pretty rank. What are some of the other, new media serving rural areas and small towns--wasn't there a thing called Dogpatch? I don't think that's the right name but it was/is a (small n) network of online local news...
Is it really a "phobia" just because a guy doesn't agree with homosexuality??
Liberals are Christophobe, so they have make everyone else look bad, and belittle them, so they feel better about themselves.



black buzzards, any other ideas
by f1tiger (Posted Fri, 20 Jan 2017 22:22:13 GMT+5)
Do not have any problems with buzzards as the Brahman cows will keep the buzzards away even from Hereford and limousine calves : friend of a friend grandfather ( think he passed away 4-5 years ago ) would make a round pen out of 5-6 cattle panels and bait it ; buzzard would land in it but did not have enough room to run to get a takeoff : said it was like being at a turkey shoot ........ that is what he claims ....can not ask him personally as he died 4-5 years ago they say lol
