Any of you Hereford raisers needing more cows?- there is going to be a dispersion sale of over 220 head of bred hereford cows and 80 bred heifers on Thursday- March 3- GSI (Glasgow Stockyards)......This is a commercial herd of 1 iron cows from an over 70 year old ranch- never seen the cows, but have seen the calves in the fall and they look good.....Cows are advertised as bred to Cooper and Holden bulls......

Doc Ismay is the best horse vet in the country.

We like Doc Ismay too. Our old horse broke his jaw a few years back. JJ Hovde was practicing here and he diagnosed it and called Dr. Ismay. On JJ's advice we ran the horse right down to him, arriving about dark. Their son was getting married the next day. Dr. Ismay said our horse was going into shock so he and his wife stayed up with that horse all night long. They had never even met us before!! Consequently, with a lot of TLC and much worry, the horse healed up. Took all winter but he lived another 6 years and was always in good shape.

JJ Hovde, who now owns the vet clinic at Sidney is a whale of a horse and cow vet. We sure thought a lot of him while he was here. We've been around a lot of good horse vets; he is one of the good ones. We sure hated to see him go.

"Juan, do you know the Meyers that sell bulls around Buffalo SD????"

What do you need to know about them? Honest as the day is long, and great people.

I'll echo the real jake. We have had good luck with Meyers' bulls. Just bought three more of them at their bull sale a couple weeks ago.

I'm new to this site, so I'll intoduce myself as someone who agrees with your small cow that weans half her wt, every year, as the one I pursue. And your business about the F1hybred x longhorn makes me laugh, as I have some in the herd still. Just enjoyed your approach to making it long term.
