99.9% of cattle raising is common sense. The other .1% is everything else!Lol! Seriously? Just turn her back out to pasture with the other cows and let her milk dry up naturally!
If people would buy these three books as I suggested in a previous thread they wouldn't have to ask these questions as they'd have and know the answer. I for one don't go off half cocked at anything. I research it thoroughly before ever getting into anything. I cringe every time I hear someone has bought cattle, has no facilities to work them, and doesn't know anything about them. You gotta do your research and due diligence in the cattle business or you will never make a profit. You gotta know when to shoot one and put it down and when to take one to the vet because you "know" it will be saved but you don't have the instruments, meds, or whatever to treat it yourself. My father had cattle years ago so I was a wee bit ahead of the game but not much since so much has changed since then. But when it came to meds, treatment, etc I used to do it all and dad looked to me and still does for guidance. Why? Because I had read all these books and felt confident in the decisions I was about to make! I know what works, and what does not as I've tried them all! I'll say again buy these three books and you will be ahead of the game! These books have also saved us numerous vet bills because I was able to treat the animals myself! I'm not judging anyone per se I just know how to make a profit in the cattle business and try and help others. I guess I get frustrated because people expect everyone else to do the research and give them the answers instead of seeking knowledge themselves!Tnsalers this is a forum for everyone. Not everyone knows as much about cattle as you, but it is nice to be able to ask any question you may have on here without being judged or made fun of. Have some respect please
I guess. I find a method that's tried and true and don't deviate from it!Ya but it's always nice learning people ways and opinions other then just learning it one way like sure I may know how to get a calf to suck a bottle but it's still nice to learn another way to do it tnsalers
If people bought the three books you suggested we'd all be cattle geniuses like you and they would be no need for this forum would there. I have a couple of cattle books that i refer to but sometimes talking with people can be more helpful as long as they aren't jack asses.No one says I know everything. I know allot a whole lot but not everything.
What color are the sores? Have you had alot of rain? It's probably ring worm.Help. I had the same situation but calf was premature. Now about a month later i have issue of large sores under her belly in a straight line.
