Breed Coloring Pages - Santa Gertrudis

THURSDAY, JULY 24, 2014

Yes Texas jackpot kids, at one time there was a real breed called Santa Gertrudis.  They weren't just the bigger boned and sloppier made of the mongrelized ABCs either.  They were an actual cross meant for actual beef production.

Joelynn Rathmann & Jackpot Photography

TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014

Have you taken a moment to look at the work Joelyn Rathmann is doing at the Texas jackpots?

Backdrop photos are something where the photographer is at the mercy of the facility they are in and the quality of the lighting.  What’s great about the work she’s doing is the part where she gets up off her rear while there aren’t any backdrop photos and gets killer ring shots…

http://www.joelynnrathmannphotography.com/browse

I'm not exaggerating one bit when I say it would make sense to find out where she's shooting just to get a good picture of your calf.

Secondly…

If you run a photography service and you are depending on a web interface that was built 10+ years ago (or just looks like it was), you need to look at SmugMug and the other similar sites that handle all of it for you.  It’s cheap and, it straight up works, and it lets you focus on what you should be focusing on, taking great photographs.

Zilmax Articles from the Weekend

MONDAY, JULY 21, 2014

I hate that those additive alert scum bags get any sort of attention on this but if two grumpy old men that hate the world and lie about children is where you have to go to get an opposing view, that says something about the lack of the opposing view.

S.Korea delays lifting ban on beef with feed additive


SEOUL, July 16 (Reuters) - South Korea has delayed a move to allow certain levels of the animal feed additive zilpaterol in beef to August from mid-July as it finalises the policy, a food ministry official said on Wednesday.


This story is more important than anything happening in Lincoln.  Temple Grandin’s speech at the NCBA wasn’t what caused Zilmax to be pulled from the market.  She was just the spark that allowed Tyson and the rest of the packers, who have legitimate concerns over tenderness, to institute a ban.  The real reason though is the international markets which prohibited its use because luddite attitudes have taken the place of science in many place of the world.

I don’t think it really matters what happens here, unless the international markets start allowing it again the big packers aren’t going to accept it.

Zilmax trial design defended by lead UNL scientist


US researchers, who concluded that controversial cattle feed additive, Zilmax, doesn’t have a detrimental effect on cattle health or well-being, said their study is robust despite criticism this week that it was too narrow in terms of scale.


The most robust article regarding the study outside the articles on the UNL site itself.  The researchers defend their study size and funding.

Ol'Suzy

FRIDAY, JULY 18, 2014

What ever happened to that lady (term used liberally) in Nebraska that was slanderously calling kids cheaters, obviously buying Facebook likes from Asian teenagers, and actually put out a press release that falsely implied I hacked her Facebook account because she doesn’t know how Facebook works?

She’s still at it.

At least this time she’s targeting adults who did nothing to deserve it instead of kids.  Hey, it’s progress.

They put out a press release yesterday saying they don’t believe the UNL study that came out this week that says Zilmax has no noticeable detrimental effect on cattle health or well-being.

She’s still up to her PR hack ways too…


"We know that the pharmaceutical industry has a history of funding university Ag research. We were not able to confirm if that is the case here," said **** ******** *****'s Gerald Timmerman. Lead UNL researcher Ty Schmidt could not be reached for comment.


Talk about slinging **** at the wall with no proof whatsoever.  She’s good at that crap, if you can call doing that being good a something.  She just implied that Ty Schmidt is bought and paid for by the pharmaceutical industry while simultaneously stating that they have absolutely no proof he is.

I sort of doubt Dr. Schmidt is avoiding her the way she ran away from answering any of my calls last year.

Of course, nothing should be surprising when a woman is willing to lie about children because two old men pay her to.

Hey Suzy, Gerald, and Harvey I'd still love to do an interview with you.

Judge Fist Bumps

WEDNESDAY, JULY 16, 2014

I’m on the record as being very anti-shake the judges hand.  It slows shows down and there’s really no need for it.  You aren’t saying hi to the judge, you aren’t introducing yourself, and you’re not saying goodbye.  Your gratitude is implied by your attentiveness in the ring and could just as easily be expressed by a simple nod of the head or ‘tipping your hat’ with your show stick on the way out (THAT should become a thing).

It’s not something that is expected, the only reason it is so common is somebody wanted to look more gracious than somebody else and then a hundred other people followed suit.

If you or your kids are going to continue to insist it, consider doing what I saw judges do this past weekend, do a fist bump.

Why not?

It’s not ghetto and thuggish.

It’s quick, there’s no need to switch the lead from your right hand to left.

There’s no awkward left handed hand shake.

The judge can just stick his hand out for the kid to bump or high five without having to take his eyes of the animal he is talking about.

Please, make this a thing.
