the next research will be with these folks who seem very well versed and their product is reasonably priced ...Hendley`s first post on this thread indicated no success with autogenous  vaccine...gotta see for myself...

still haven`t received my vaccine ...bought those 12 unweaned heifers off the customers cows two weeks ago; haven`t done anything to them except feed about 4 lb of 13% /day...not a sign of pinkeye yet; if ever there was a prime group for infection, it should have been them..on we go...

So the Beefmasters got pinkeye as well; milder version it seems; but another myth busted ...though I guess resistance is not immunity...

the first two purebred heifers have calved; amusing; different attitude; everything but what I expected in more positive way...such intelligent, gentle Bonsma cows...but it`s early...interesting and fun... I remembered why people AI...

Cows with a lot of hair I've never seen as having a fertility issue. When it's 100 outside yes cows with lots of hair do not settle very well. if you slick shear those hairy cows they will settle. Slick shear then top off with Ivomec and they will be fine I'm not going to shear cattle so I let someone else own them. Often almost always you will find those hairy cows have a craving for fescue seed. Put on overcoat on those cows and fertility slips. In the day we flushed several HAIRY cows lots of good eggs.


Did not have a location here for "practical advice" so I put it under summer ills. I'd feel ill in the summer, too, if I had to clip cows and worm them to get them to stay here. But boy, those superior offspring from flushing - can't bet that!

don't know why but no pinkeye yet. grass so tall thought the cows were out. flies plentiful during the day and bat size mosquitos at night.

with a torn rotator cuff and symptoms of Chikungunya, good year too be problem free. no cow clipping done here anymore.
