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.

TOOLS ARE AVAILABLE TO IMPROVE FORAGE DIGESTION
At the cow/calf and stocker cattle level, production systems are generally built on forage production, pastures, hay, etc. For these operations forages provide the bulk of the nutrients needed for the animals. In many cases because of inadequate management or simply uncooperative weather patterns, forage quality is not suitable for the pasture and hays to maintain the type of digestibility needed for the animal to extract the needed nutrients.

I'll take the rain every time. Of course almost all of our ground is high and sandy, the worse thing too much rain does for us is wash out our roads...

My brother lives six miles from here but in the river bottom - he might not agree with me on this one.

I had a Model 27 in the presentation case. A more refined version of the Model 28 Highway Patrol. The Model 27 was the Model S & W introduced the .357 magnum in. Hard to believe 1935. I had a Model 19 Combat Masterpiece in .357. The Model 19 was inspired by the tall Texan, Bill Jordan. His great book, No Second Place Finish I believe it was. My goodness how time has passed.

Questions/options for old thin cow

You can see she is making very little milk.










No matter how I load the pictures they come out sideways????


She doesn't look that bad to me. Your grass looks good. That would be the deciding factor for me. If your grass is going to hold out I'd let her raise the calf. If think your not going to be able to keep her on good grass sell the pair now.



Grass only?
by Angus86 (Posted Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:36:10 GMT+5)
I have 24 acres in FL with lots of grass mostly Bahia. I was planning to raise up some heifers and was hoping they could just live off the pasture. Assuming the land is not overstocked is this possible? Grass, free choice minerals, and clean water.

I know someone who feeds their cows grain and hay everyday and they spend more time setting in the area they are fed them actually grazing the land they have acess too. This person said if I don't feed my cows they'll just get skinny.
Opinions welcomed



It's hot in middle Georgia.
by inyati13 (Posted Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:34:50 GMT+5)
I welded a crack in the frame for the tail wheel on my Bush Hog today. Had to tie a bandanna around my head to keep the sweat from pooling on the window of my hood. It was HOT. Had my leather arm chaps on and heavy welding gloves. Hood over my head. Sparks burning small holes in the pants over my thighs. Now and then one would fly in my hair. Was using 6010 rod. They were old and had absorbed some moisture. Was like frying bacon.

About finished when someone tapped on my shoulder. I stood up. Pulled up my hood and there was Satan. He said, "Pilgrim, I have watched you for 60 years. It is a lead pipe cinch you are mine. Had a young stone mason put in a brimstone chamber to make your stay a hot one but anyone who would weld on a day like this is not worth being danmed."
