Storm again...

This seems to be an everyday occurrence now...we have had more than enough can stop anytime now.

From Mike Crisp

Raymond, this is a custom showbox my cousin built. This one is brushed alum. It has incredible detail! Built in car stereo, the speakers have thier own compartment that is on a hydro ram. The front door is on a self closing hydro ram. It has a rear door for halters. The latches are second to none! Hell, the whole thing is second to none! It even has recessed bling wheels. Notice the 110 hookup in the rear. He is taking orders now. He wants to make one with a flat screen and bling spinner wheels! Cody Meyers contact info 262 902 1372. This showbox will be at Wisconsin State Fair for you to see yourself.

2011 Harvest

This on the other hand....well this is way far gone on the idea of quitting because its pouring rain. This is my dad's shear stubborn attitude to finish a field no matter what!

2011 Harvest

This should have been a sign to quit last night...when the silage chopper has to pull the trucks out of the field after loading them because it too wer

Saturday AM breeding

This is the full sister to "The Wizard" promotional bull that was displayed in Denver by Cadavic Land and Cattle. We purchased her in the group of elite females in the fall of 2009 from them. We matched her up with Master of Puppets today and I hope she stuck because this cow really produces and I think phenotypically is the type of cow he will work great on!!

Saturday AM breeding

JSC Harietta 21T (Ali x Hotline/Harietta)

GCCM Sweetness 2R - dam of JSC Harietta 21T

This is one of my few high % maine females that I purchased in the High Standards Female Sale from Jones Show Cattle of Ohio back in 2008. Her mother won her division at the NWSS as a bred heifer and this was her first calf. She is pictured above as a heifer calf at Troy's place that fall before the sale. I think that the combination of Ali, Hotline and the famous Harietta donor with Master of Puppets could really produce a head turner!!
