New from Texas

Postby Splash » Mon Oct 24, 2016 10:24 pm

Hi All,

I'm new to the board and new to the cattle industry. I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks and I hope I can learn from the experience(s) of the members here and maybe avoid some of the mistakes that will happen when anyone tries something new and without training. Wish me luck!

I'm from east central Texas, just purchased a small piece of heaven and look forward to getting started. Not exactly a city boy but also haven't had any real experience in the ranching world. Over the next few months I'll be working towards getting the place ready for cattle - mending the fences, getting the fields and pastures in better shape, handling pens and equipment needs. All of which I will gladly take helpful advise for.

Look forward to getting to know some of you...............

Seems you will be getting in when prices are low... don't forget to sell high and you should do okay.
Best of Luck.

Welcome. You're probably pretty close to me (maybe a little north?).

Thanks greybeard,

Shiro's not too far away. I'm further west - closer to the Navasota River.

Hi, I'm in Texas as well, Southwest of Ft. Worth in Stephenville. Been breeding cattle for over 35 years and all I can say is when you buy a bull, buy a young one so you can halter break it and teach it manners. Bette if it is bought that way. Fencing for a bull has to be the best and higher in my opinion if there are cows on the other side of the fence. Bulls don't have to go over a fence, they can get their heads under it and pick it up. Are you wanting cross bred cattle or registered? What breeds are you interested in? www.milkmaidranch.com
