hi im new here

Postby mississippi » Mon Feb 27, 2006 9:47 pm

Goodevening , I found this sight a few weeks ago and have been reading alot and really enjoying this forum. I work full time off the farm and my wife stays home with our two young children. We run ninety mama cows on about two hundred and seventy five acres of rented land. I've been raising cattle since I was about fifteen and I'm thirty now. It is a long slow process to build a herd as everyone here already knows but I love the challenge of it. Hope to do it full time one day although I realize it could take several more years. I love raising my children in the country, and my wife and kids help me a great deal here on the farm. I hope to learn alot from this site as I know there are alot of people on here with valuable experience with cattle that they are willing to share. Thanks

Hey redcherrys, I live near Oxford, Ms which is in the northern part of the state.It's where Ole Miss is at. I run mostly brangus type cows and a few hereford ,brahman crosses. I breed them to registered angus bulls. Right now I have ninety mama cows. I've been saving heifers for years, trying to slowly grow into the cattle business. I'd like to save about fifteen this year if I could. How bout you? Where are you located and what type of cattle do you run?

Sorry about your Dad, I know it's tough, I lost my dad about a year and a half ago. He was only 53. I've also been having trouble with some of my first calf heifers and a neighbors bull. I had bought an Angus bull with a low birth weight EPD and put with my heifers. Everything was going good and one day I came home from work and there was this big Charloais bull with my heifers. I ran him out but he came back several times. I had recently built a seven strand fence between me and my neighbor and he would go through it like it was nothing. Finally talked the neighbor into selling him. Now fast forward to about February 1. Those heifers started calving. The first five were out of the angus bull and had no problems. The next three were Charloais sired and I pulled one huge bull, lost one and one had one O.k. Very frustrating. I'm not an expert but have had cattle about 15 years. If I can help, feel free to write.
