    What's the weather like at your place?

    Here in the Golden Triangle we are Popcorn Fart Dry. Might get some rain this coming weekend. Putting in a new working chute and thought of digging some holes, went and got the water bucket. Don't think we ever get caught up, after I retired I found a lot of stuff that should have been done...

    Rib or hip brand ?

    Is the brand registered for the whole state or just the county you live in. In Texas the brand is only registered for the county, someone in the next county can have the same brand. So it is advised to register your brand in all surrounding counties.

    Rib or hip brand ?

    Rib or hip brand ?

    I hip brand, backwards R against D, Down here they call that RD connected. I cut out 1/4 inch x 1/4 inch of iron at the top of the R and bottom, also do the same on the D. Gives places for the blood to pass to the center and not fall out and blotch.

    How to not get the yearlings checked

    Had a 567, moved up to a 568, really like it. Thought about a 569, then looked at the price and my check book and decided the 568 repairs were cheaper. Even with a $2800.00 gear box repair. The gear box its self was $2300.00. Seal went out while baling and lost the oil. As the repair man said...

    Do most ranchers still brand their cattle or only use ear tags?

    In Texas a brand registration cost $10 for 10 years. That does not mean 10 years from the date you register your brand, It is a 10 year span and I think it started 3 years ago. Also in Texas if you have a registered brand, by law you have to use it. As for ear tags, they should only be used...
