Summary of Oklahoma Brand Laws Those applying for State Brand Registration must fill out the "Application for Registration of Brands and Marks," and file the same with the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association, Brand Division, Box 82395, Oklahoma City, OK 73148. The application must be accompanied by the $20.00 registration fee. Upon approval, a brand certificate will be mailed to the applicant indicating the brand registered. All brands approved by the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association will appear in the next brand book or supplement printed. The current registration period ends December 31, 2014. State registered brand owners will be notified by mail prior to the closing of the five-year registration period, at which time their brands are to be renewed preparatory to publication of the 2010 Oklahoma Brand Book. Points to be kept in mind for State Brand Registration 1. A brand is defined as a permanent mark, not less than three inches in length or diameter and burned in with a hot iron, or a method commonly known as "freeze branding." Acid brands are not recognized for state registration. 2. Single unit brands such as: one initial, numeral, bar, slash or quarter circle, cannot be accepted for state registration. 3. Each brand registration must be confined to one location on the animal. Where the same brand is used on two positions, two applications are required. Brands must be registered for the following eight positions ONLY: Left Neck, Left Shoulder, Left Rib, Left Hip, Right Neck, Right Shoulder, Right Rib and Right Hip, except that previously registered Oklahoma brand positions are not affected in any way (O.S. 2, Sections 405). The left jaw is reserved for the use of Band T brands, identifying Brucellosis and Tuberculosis-reacting cattle. 4. Applicants are required, under law, to list three-distinct brands and/or three positions on the animal for use of their brand, in order preferred. 5. State registration of your brand is not required by law. Brands on record take precedence over unrecorded brands of like and kind where questions of ownership arise, placing the burden on proof on unregistered brand users in the event of controversy. Registered brands are prima facie evidence of ownership in a court of law. Brand books are furnished to County Sheriffs, County Extension Agents and Agricultural Education Instructors without charge. They may be purchased by the public at a price commensurate with the cost of preparation, printing and delivery thereof.

Wonder if this is good for people??



cow going down, heat stroke?
by ufo_chris (Posted Fri, 28 Jul 2017 02:10:40 GMT+5)
No shade ???? I'm only in Ohio and my cows stay in the shade all day long even in the 70'
I would feel really crappy if they didn't have any shade and they would feel a lot worse and I would say it's definitely the heat ,poor cow!



All purpose Bull.
by Nesikep (Posted Thu, 27 Jul 2017 23:52:58 GMT+5)
I think the point is to not neglect and go backward in a bunch of traits to make advances in another trait... Going for phenomenal growth numbers at the cost of calving ease would be one example... better to go more moderate on the growth and at least hold your position on the calving ease and other traits.

Cross, I know you your chargers, but do you think 1/2 Joule is hot enough at 6100V--assuming 1000ohm resistance in the wire?

Isn't Speedrite just a souped up or rebranded patriot?
Both are made by the same company--TruTest.

Anyone have a list of the new Genex sires with sexed female semen available?

I actually sent Genex an email recently, and as of July 15 they only had three bulls available with the GenChoice 4M sexed semen:
* SAV Bismarck (Black Angus) at $75 per straw (limited supply)
* Churchill Sensation 028X, a Horned Hereford, at $60 per straw (limited supply)
* Brown JYJ Redemption Y1334, a Red Angus, at $70 per straw (limited supply)

One of those places I take the 85mph toll road and avoid at all cost. I hear the races are pretty good though.

I took that toll road for the first time today it was amazing.

Pathetic bull
by gizmom (Posted Thu, 27 Jul 2017 22:21:42 GMT+5)
Years ago our neighbor had a heifer calf in trouble, the wife calls me her husband and the boss were both still at work. I grabbed Jacob and ran over to see if we could do anything, ran my hand in and a leg was back got that straight and we got chains on and Jacob pulled the calf. Calf was 100 pounds so a task for a first time heifer. Calf was fine mamma was fine neighbors husband pulled in about the time the calf started nursing. I figured he would be thankful we were able to help, nope he was be nice said we should have waited for him to get there. I apologized for interfering and we went home. Some folks are just ornery.

I really like the 6EM3 heifer, and the OCC calves.the Bennett calves look ok not as deep as the others but they sure are long. Keep up posted on how they work in the feedyard and on the rail. We were at OCC a little over a week ago and he has a young bull Zodiak that is sure good. I will be getting more info on him, I don't have EPD's or registration number as yet, but phenotypically he is as good as I have seen anywhere. We will be at Larry Colemans this week he has a few Bulls I really want to look at as well. What Angus Bulls will you be using this year?

Who said to lie? I figure you would have to be in fear of your life to pull a trigger on someone to start with. You should never lie as it kills your credibility.
I've shot plenty of people and wasn't afraid. Why would I be now?



Still no hay
by Caustic Burno (Posted Thu, 27 Jul 2017 21:44:55 GMT+5)
Hay was one of my biggest problems and why I never ran more than 37 momma cows. Working and bailing hay and putting up enough when I was off was a challenge.
That is the reason I adopted the philosophy of there is no such thing as too much hay and kept a years worth in reserve.
Health got me hay equipment got sold drought got most of the cows.
