    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...

    New to Ranching, moving from Maryland to Dallas Tx

    As for the breed that works, just about any of the common breeds will do good. I would check around the area and see what other people have. Might even go to the local sale barn and see what it going thru and what sells good in the area. All depends on what the order buyers are looking for. Of...

    caracara eating newborn calves

    Here is how to build a trap for buzzards: with some 5 ft high hog wire that is small enough so the buzzards can't crawl thru, make a circle 5 ft or so in diameter held in place with posts, don't have to be big. Throw in something dead. The buzzards can not fly straight up, only at an angel...

    caracara eating newborn calves

    In Texas it is legal to kill buzzards if they are destroying your livestock. You can get a permit from Texas Parks and Wildlife. Talk to you game warden or county ext agent, I got this information from our Game Warden in DeWitt County. Got a .17 cal with a scope that works great. I agree...

    Silver: My kind of phone. Denny: That is why i carry a pencil in my shirt pocket and a knife in my pocket in case the pencil gets dull. Sandhiller: Nope, it is in the same pocket as my calculator. The calculator is what has ruined my math abilities.

    Smartphone uses in ranching

    Our kids decided we needed a cell phone just in case, so they got us one on their family plan. We told them we wanted the most user friendly and easiest to use, preferably with a rotary dial on it. Ended up with a flip, that is as far as we will go. For the rest, we still use a note book and...
