BLOG.RANCHMANAGEMENT.COM: Making Grass Finishing Profitable

October 10, 2012

My crystal ball isn’t better than anybody else’s, but in mine I see the cost of energy increasing and the economics of feeding irrigated corn to cattle crashing. I see serious externalized ecological costs (the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico, nitrates in ground water, etc.). Feedlots are a creation of the 50’s and 60’s. They followed the introduction of hybrid varieties of corn and nitrogen fertilizer. Today it is almost impossible to imagine the cattle industry without feedlots. Perhaps it is as hard as it would be to imagine Australia or Argentina with feed lots. My guess is that by 2040, the livestock industry will undergo a transformation again. After all, it is pretty hard to find a successful industry that doesn’t a require radical transformation at least once a century to remain successful.

Replacement Heifers Bulls Hybrid Vigor Angus Galloway Brangus Cross

Replacement Heifers and Bulls

We raise replacement heifers and bulls on request for farmers and ranchers wanting to either diversify their herd genetics or replace with smaller frame size to improve profitability.

This is being made available at this time as we know a lot of people have had to downsize their herds due to recent drought.

We have recently just replaced all our older stock from our own saved-back heifers, so we now want to make our particular line available to others.

The original stock was a combination of Black-Whiteface and Brangus/Angus-cross cows. These were and are bred to a registerd Galloway Bull from Sapp Farms in Columbia, named “Gene Autry”.

These calves are composite, not registered or purebred. They can have more or less of Brangus or Hereford in their lineage. Right now, we can trace these back 3-4 generations and tell you general attibutes of any given calf.

The offspring of this mix has a low birth weight, fast-gaining calf which tends to be a medi

Is Google Universal Search Biased Towards YouTube?

October 3, 2012

The short answer is…. It certainly seems so! There was a great post today from Sherwood Stranieri of SearchEngineLand titled, “Is Google Universal Search A Walled Garden?.” The nice thing about this article is that the author takes a fairly objective approach, giving Google the benefit of the doubt to begin with. However, research offered in the post does seem to demonstrate that Google may be preferentially treating Youtube videos within universal search results.
Previously we’ve covered some research that was done by Comscore which shows that among all universal search results, video results tend to dominate, along with results for news content. We also know that Google, as well as the other major search engines, are still experimenting with different user interfaces for Universal search. So, while the research seems to indicate that Google currently shows preference for Youtube videos; we know that changes are still being made. Therefore, what we see today, will likely chan

HSUS Now Goes After The Pork Checkoff | My View From The Country

October 1, 2012

One thing you have to give the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) is that the organization is consistent. HSUS has made it clear – oppose us and you will pay a price.

That’s essentially what HSUS telegraphed when it provided the money and intellectual capital to allow the Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM) and Mike Callicrate to sue the national beef checkoff. HSUS made it clear the move was payback for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) having thwarted the HSUS effort in Congress to pass poultry legislation in the 2012 session. Of course, NCBA wasn’t alone; the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) was also instrumental in helping defeat the HSUS legislation.
