More fair results

Posted on September 29, 2015
     I got word from favorite Nebraskan that Big Rumour had sired the res. grand market doe at the Ak-Sar-Ben show.  Ron Simonson has had a banner year with the Big Rumour kids.  I got word today that a Rumour Has It x Joe Dirt wether named “Mike” was grand at the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair in Ft. Smith.       This past Saturday was the State Fair of Oklahoma.  This isn’t a true

Wicked Cool!

     We are outside watching this supermoon total eclipse of a blood moon that hasn’t happened since 1982 and won’t happen again until 2033 or something like that.  I’ve been watching through some hi-end binoculars that I got for Christmas several years ago. Tammy has her camera out.  And Duke….well, Duke has a .22 rifle with a tactical light shining into the night looking for the big skunk.  He isn’t happy with the two

Just Wrong

      I know this deal may seem a bit wrong.  But, it actually isn’t.  Livestock observation is a must.  Especially with bucks and then when you throw in an ET flush program, now you better pay attention.        I have programmed two donors for this next flush (hear that sound of money getting ready to leave my account–it is already circling like a turd that just isn’t ready to head down).

     There are two college teams that I keep up with–Oklahoma State and Notre Dame.  I like the Cardinals and Red Sox when it comes to major league baseball.  But, in reality, I just like going to MLB ballparks.  I have never been a big basketball fan.  Actually, that statetment isn’t true.  I spent a lot of time watching the Arnett girls play 6 on 6 basketball back in the late 80s.  I keep

“Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.” “The truth is, most of us discover where we are headed when we arrive.” “Our idea of relaxing is all too often to plop down in front of the television set and let its pandering idiocy liquify our brains.  The mind is like a car battery– it recharges by running.  You

     I had plans on writing a really nifty piece of knowledge.  But, then, I made the mistake of clicking on a website that had a video of some chick that tricked Alex Trebeck, as in the long-time Jeaporday host, into reading the words “Turd Ferguson”.  Between the watching and the laughing, I lost the knowledge.  Yes, I admit that I can be immature.  But, Duke and I like to watch the SNL greatest

Thank you. I think I’ll have another.

     Yes. Yes, I will.  Got word today that the res. div. 1 wether at the Kansas State Fair was sired by Big Rumour.  I know some breeders get worried about letting “their” genetics out.  I understand and I can agree.  On the other hand, whoever is looking to buy a buck might as well buy a good one from me.  Last I checked Kenneth Helms and Joe Raff are still in businesss, even

Success continues

     I like getting messages about Rumour Has It kids or grand kids.  I recently got a message that Rumour Mill sired the res. grand at the South Dakota State Fair.  Rumour Mill is owned by Peterson Livestock and was purchased in aour April Fool’s Day sale in 2014.  Congrats!      Blood Pressure also sired a res. div. wether at the Kansas State Fair.  These young bucks are getting it done.  Congrats to

Livestock Evaluation

Posted on September 14, 2015
      I like to judge livestock.  I like to look, compare, evaluate and run reasons through my head or out loud.  I then bid, buy, agree or disagree with those that are looking at the same stock that I am.  Regardless of species, I like to look at good stock.        Which brings us to this evenings 2016 Miss America pageant.  Normally, I could give 2 squirts of goose crap about

     Congratulations are in order for the Foraker family in Kansas.  They have been real tough in the goat and sheep barn.  They have hung banners and are still striving to hang more.  They didn’t have they day that they hoped for, but they did have a day that will be hard to replicate.  To start this day at the Kansas State Fair, Kaci Foraker showed the res. div. 3 wether goat.  This was
