I'm wore smooth out...lol
« on: March 12, 2007, 12:48:12 AM »
Well i just got in from outside freezing my tail off waiting for a cow to calf... :newclap: Yes i know this is a goat place but there isnt a cow place, so everyone gets to hear about my cows too. Well GUESS WHAT??? Its a bull calf... :goodidea: the better to eat them I say and this way I dont have to keep them or sell them, its easier to eat them.... So far its 1 heifer and 5 bulls...i lost a heifer earlier this month, i tried and she just wasnt going to make it...  :bawling: worked my tail off with her too... But this is a big boy and his name is Amos, I still have 2 more to go for a while and then there will be others brought in, and the watch begins again....Its either goats butts I am watching or cow tails...It just never ends here on the farm and I LOVE IT!!!

I do about 1 1/2 a year and they are better than you can buy in the stores too sooooo tender and juicy too, I feed them well and grow for me so nicely . I name them but you dont pet what you want to eat. My sons sell meat to his co-workers in Parsons and they all love it. If you ever watch that movie thats out now Fast Food Nation you will be calling me for meat....  :hehe:

We raise a mexed herd and our bull is a registered Brangus, He is a big boy and can move out if he gets mad. Other than that he is a sweet as a kitten and loves to be petted. Max is a awsome bull and he throws some nice calves too. Hey Sondra I have a jersey cow here too and we have some half Jersey calves. Some say the meat is more tender but I can tell the difference. Hey meat is MEAT and we dont have any implants or additives in this meat, like some do. We dont fix the bull calves till they are 6 mths old.  Yes I do that too, thank God for a squeeze chute....  :hehe:

Hey you guys need to talk to Deanna, my daughter was given two jersey bull calfs. From the farmer that she helps milk. We have 107 acres and could even put them in with the horses..........The problem is Deanna would want to keep them as pets FOREVER!!! How long does a cow live???? You guys tell her!! :camp:

Well they can live as long as you let them, Our bull calves get steered or castrated at 6 mths and we either butcher them at 14 mths or sell them. Cows on the other hand can live for about 20 plus years. When they hit around 15+ yrs they are considered brokenjaw, or they start loosing teeth. When this happens you notice that they change in appearance by not holding their weight as well even if they are fed well. We usually sell them before they get to this age because the calves start getting smaller and not to good. If you have bull calves you need to steer them so they dont get really mean. Jersey bulls do get that way and they do not make good pets either...So DeAnna, you need to not make them pets, I dont because I like to eat them better than have a hay burner. Even the horses work here and if they arent producers they get sold. We have 1 cow here that will die here, she has proven herself and has been around for a long time.

Well if it isnt the cows wearing me out its the bucks, that sucker jumped the fence again and when I did catch him I put his knee whacker back on this time with a piece of wire. I bet he cant break this like he did the baling string   :hehe: I cant wait to take this 1 to the sale and get him out of here he is sucha  problem and I have a buck here that isnt any problem, and then I am getting a new 1 soon too, Grant! I need some relief  :rollin: Never a dull moment around here... Yes DeAnna those calves will seem nice for a while and they can turn in a blink of a eye too...They dont make good pets, the heifers do I have a Jersey cow and she will let you pet her and milk her and she will follow you anywhere if you have a bucket...I love Maggie, she is a sweety...

Ok guys this is my problem about the cow thing!! My daughter Brittney was given two Jersey bull calf's. I am not a vegetarian I love my meat but I am such an animal lover that I don't think I can raise my own cows for meat.  :hehe: We bought two pigs to raise and eat well they got named and I got attached   :smily961: I could not butcher and eat them and I didn't want to keep two pigs either Though I was attached, I already had enough  animals to take care of.  So we sold them I'm not stupid and I know they weren't bought for a pet but at least I wasn't the one eatting them.  :hehe:  Sean and Britt have tried to talk me into it. I just know I will get attached and wont want to eat them.  :laugh: If I did decide to have them butchered and eat them. I know everytime I would go to eat the meat my daughter would bring up the fact that I am eatting our cows. I would cry  :smily961: They both call me a tree hugger. I can't help it if I raise it I don't think I can eat it. Though I do know home grown beef is much better than store bought.  :icon_biggrin:

First have them castrated, that is the biggest hurdle, and you have just got to have it done for the sake of your family's safety. Then live with them for a while, I guarantee it will be easier to eat them. Cattle by their very nature are strong willed, if they want to walk down a path and you're in it, they will push you out of the way rather than walking around you, they will rub the heads off your sprinklers, and use your fence posts to scratch on, and push down your fences. Don't get me wrong, I like cattle, but you REALLY have to be willing to accommodate their idiosyncrasies to live with them.

Sausage and hamburger Prime rib are the names here.   We don't keep goats or animals except 1 dog that doesn't pull their weight.  I don't butcher here except rabbits but boy can I eat that meat.  I raised on goats milk one bottle heifer for the neighbors and even she tho a big pet  got to the point that I couldn't handle being butted by her as she thought she was a goat and butting I guess was her way of lovin.

I agree the first steer we had butchered was way back and when we would start to eat it my cousin would go MMMMM  Shorty you aure are good, we would take off at a run to the bathroom. I have had homegrown animals to eat all my life and its gets easier after a while, I get my DIL sometimes cause she dont want to know which 1 we are eating...  :hehe: well I slipped the other day and told her, she says I didnt want to  know , but he sure is good. She is a softie too and wants to keep them all, but when that freezer gets low, they got to go. I  dont do pigs at all did that but wont do it again got tired of the pork... I can eat beef anytime, but prok isnt my fav. If I need some I just call my son he works with a guy that raises pigs and its cheaper to buy from him than the store. DeAnna just rent that movie Fast Food Nation and you wont want store bought meat again...  :hehe: made my son sick and he is almost 24 and he called to see when we were sending some to the butcher...  :hehe: You wont like it when someone gets hurt either, just like Nic said they dont move for you like a horse. They will step on you and hurt you too. Our bull is gentle but I always have a eye on him and never trust him. Just want you to know this I have been around them all my life.

The pigs were not friendly but I just couldn't bring myself to eat them.  :hehe: Sean was really mad at me but he got over it and let me sell them. :smily961: When I dropped Brittney ( my daughter off at her friends to help milk. She took me to the barn to see the little guys that they gave her. Way to cute. I told Sean if he wants to get them they will have to go where I can not see them and I will never Feed them that would be his and Britt's job.   :hehe:  Sondra we have allot of freeloaders her at this farm.  :hehe: We have more of a petting zoo. Than a farm.  :icon_biggrin:  I know I am being a big baby about the cow thing and I also know that the meat would be delicious. They will just have to understand that I can't go near them if they want to do this.  :icon_biggrin:

Thank you.  :icon_biggrin: I think it is reasonable to. But he wants to put them in with our horses and thats where I can see them. We have lots of property to put them on that I wouldn't have to see them when I drive down the driveway. How long do you have to keep them before you butcher? And also no names I'm telling you my daughter thinks its funny that I am the way I am. She would chant the name while we were eatting.  :smily961: Shes so much like her father its sad.  :smily961:  :smily961:

Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' - Theodore Roosevelt 1907

My horses run with the cattle with no problems, and its been like this a while. I dont let the 1's with horns in with them and we feed them separatly in stalls or the horses want the cattle feed.  They share the hay and pasture in harmony unless 1 decides to chase the steers and then I have to go out back to find it. Had 1 go over the fence whent he paint chased the steers. The horses get bored sometimes, I can t run all of them together cause I have 3 geldings and 2 mares. They fight too much and so they cant run together. But split them up and they do good with the cattle and calves too. My appy babysits the calves when the cows want to go eat, he is great with them. I name mine just for indentification and when we send them to the butcher or sale barn. If you dont want to take care of them then dont, just remember all the implants and stuff thats in the store meat and you can change your mind real fast too. I just heard about the tyson recall for e-coli....SCARY!!!

Yep, some horses and cattle get along. We had a gelding go after a couple of heifers once, and I had to stand over one with a 2x4 until it came too, after the horse kicked it in the head. That gelding was out for blood, and determined to stomp the heifer too death-go figure.

I guess we have just had good luck with ours, I have seen donkeys do that, they think the baby is a predator. Mine sure dont mess with the Bull. So far so good....If I ever do have a problem they will get shifted around. I know male donkeys will do it and ours is where he cant get to them at all... the female donkeys are better protectors...
