1. White pants white shirt are required for showing dairy. Not a suggestion.

chippie they put my daughter in with the bred heifers since she was the only dairy in that class.


I wasn't referring to your daughter. She did what was right.

NVJersey said:

... Son is going to use her for the Beef (ie cattle) Showmanship...


To me, that would mean that he would be showing the heifer as if she were a beef breed.

I know that chippie. I was just telling NV what they did here with my daughter. I agree. If the heifer is going to used in the Beef Showmanship she needs to be set just like the beef. Then he would be wearing the white shirt black pants.

Massey take your trouble making comments elsewhere. You do not know what was going on.

I don't need to know what was going on to see that someone was exhibiting a bred heifer in a bcs of 3. Either they can't afford the feed, and someone should help them out, or they just have no idea what they're doing.

You are NOT aware of the fact that girl did not OWN that heifer, she was just showing it for the owner!
Hmm.

Also this thread is about my daughters 4-H project so go back to causing trouble on the Breeds Board.

The owner of that hereford needs to take donations for feed. Just as topics in general conversation go estray, so has your topic.

I see you had to do some research on grammalouges, Chippie?

If I'm a troll, and my cattle sense literally dwarfs yours'...what's that make you?

I'm still wondering how you were able to have a live calf out of a little ol jersey cow bred brahman?? I hear they throw huuuuge calves... :lol:

Massey as usual your full of shyt again. Amazes me how you own one breed (use to have another breed that was given to you) yet you know everything about every breed....Jersey's are easy calvers....red brangus typically are low BW (without checking papers which few have). I can show you an entire herd of beautiful red jersey/brahman cattle....and people begging the man to sell them..

Look like someone needs to take up a donation for Massey to feed his cattle too.

I'd love to have some. If you'll notice I commented on her Brahma/jersey cow.

I know enough about cattle to know jersey have the smallest pelvic area of any modern breed. As low of bw as Jerseys have, they're only half the equation. Again, with all this talk about huge brahman bws, I'm still in amazement she was able to have a live calf. Must have been a phenomenon :roll:

Where did you get off rambling bout red brangus?

massy dose not know a thing about Jersey cows and calving ease, Jerseys have very large pelvics for their size,and have very few problems calving most Jerseys anymore weigh 1000 to 1200lbs also this one weighed 1070 when I bought her almost 2 years ago,
i lov herfrds your daughter did a great job showing her heifer,and needs a great big hug for it
