Beef Talk: Do you have some bulls to cull?
Now is a good time to look at the bull pen, even though it probably is empty. In fact, one would have to wonder why if there is a bull in the pen. For many, the bulls are left on pasture and rounded up with the cows and calves as fall progresses. Throughout the summer, various bulls...

Beef Talk: Bull buying and headaches
By Kris Ringwall As the year wraps up, the process of buying a bull picks up and new bulls are great, but what about the old bulls? Although one wants to keep lots of openness when reviewing new bulls, truth be told, there is a wealth of information available on most bulls that...

Bulls and cold are not a good mix
By Kris Ringwall Having had to break into the office door because the lock was frozen shut reminded me that not all things work well in the cold. Those that have experienced cold firsthand do not need to be reminded. For others that can skirt the harshness of winter, in this case...

Beef Talk: Keeping bulls free of viruses
Bulls can get sick, too. As a kid, I remember finding our bull dead. The bull was at the end of a grove of trees, the victim of blackleg. Not far away were two dead calves. Young minds are impressionable, so that day left a mark. Today there is no excuse to lose cattle to blackleg. The...
