    Carcass results interpretation

    I've gotten back some carcass results on some of our calves from 2010. I am not a feedlot guy so I'm not really in tune with what ribeye sizes are average and exceptional or what is the desire backfat thickness. So opinions and advice are welcome.

    Quick question for the solar watering guys

    Putting in a gravity-fed wet well tomorrow. Wondering what type of pipe should be used for the intake. I bought a roll of 4" solid drain pipe, but am wondering if it will provide a good enough seal around the entrance to the well or if the possibility of it crushing it is too great. I'm...

    Class License for Trailer

    This is a question I have been wondering about for quite some time and was reminded about when Bill Homans got ticketed for hauling the neighbors cows. What is the license class required to pull, say a 20' steel cattle trailer, in your respective province? I am thinking MB/SK/AB here but other...

    Winter water ideas

    Need some winter watering set-up ideas for remote locations. Drought this past year really buggered up grazing plans, so some investment is needed this year on the water side.

    Vermeer 605J

    Anyone have any experience with the 605J? I am looking into buying one at a price too good to pass up. http://winnipeg.kijiji.ca/c-ViewAdLargeImage?AdId=209629684 Coming from a 1972 605C, I'm not too familiar with fancy electronic balers like this. Did all of the newer balers have a...
