Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) is announcing an event of potential interest for both the buyers and sellers of beef breeding cattle. On Friday evening, Nov. 24, the OCA will be hosting their fifth annual Replacement Female Sale. The sale will be held at the Muskingum Livestock facility in Zanesville and will begin at 6:00 p.m.The 2017 Ohio Cattlemen’s Association Replacement Female Sale will provide an opportunity for both buyers and sellers to meet the need for quality replacements in the state. Consignments may include cow-calf pairs, bred cows and bred heifers. Females must be under the age of five as of January 1, 2018 and may be of registered or commercial background. Bred females must be bred to a bull with known EPD’s and calves at side of cows must be sired by a bull with known EPD’s. Pregnancy status must be verified by an accredited veterinarian through traditional palpation, ultrasound or by blood testing through a professional laboratory. Analysis must be performed within 60 days of sale. Consignments will also be fulfilling specific health requirements.At the 2016 OCA Replacement Female Sale, buyers had the opportunity to evaluate 102 lots of bred heifers, bred cows, and cow-calf pairs. The sale included 85 lots of bred heifers that averaged $1,651, 14 lots of bred cows that averaged $1,600, and three cow-calf pairs that averaged $1,742. The 102 total lots grossed $168,000 for an overall average of $1,647.Why discuss a sale that is over six months away? As we are in the midst of the 2017 breeding season, now is an excellent time to evaluate your herd and consider marketing decisions for the fall. Young, high quality cattle backed by solid genetics are in demand with potential buyers. Yearling heifers bred artificially to proven calving ease sires are very marketable. It is also a great time to evaluate the body condition of potential sale animals and make nutritional adjustments to the animal’s diet in anticipation of a late November sale date. It is my experience that while prospective buyers may complain about overly fat breeding cattle, they certainly resist purchasing breeding cattle that are in thin body condition.Consignments for the sale are due to the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association by October 2, 2017. Sale information can be obtained by contacting the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association at (614) 873-6736 or at their website at www.ohiocattle.org . If you have any questions about the sale, you can call me at my office at (740) 289-2071, Extension #242 or contact me by e-mail at [email protected] Please consider this sale as an option for both buyers and sellers to help contribute to the improvement of Ohio’s beef cow herd. read more
The tech industry is full of battles – epic and otherwise – between companies that position themselves (or are positioned by others, perhaps) as enemies: Apple versus Microsoft. Google versus Microsoft. Having a target like this isn’t a bad idea, as it helps you make sure you can differentiate yourself from your competition. But startups are sometimes advised to not take on these sorts of skirmishes, at least not explicitly, particularly with more established corporations. Compete for users, don’t pick a fight with Google, suggests a recent LA Times article.But taking on your challengers directly shows a great deal of confidence and guts. And if you have the product or service to back it up, you can demonstrate vision and ambition – and attract the attention and admiration of users and investors.Posterous may be the example of the week for this. On Monday, Posterous announced that it would be posting one resource a day for the next two weeks to help users migrate their content from “dying platforms” to the microblogging service. “A lot of you have asked for help moving your old blog, photos or videos to Posterous. You grouched about dying platforms that haven’t added new features in ages, sites that have made it too complex to perform the most basic tasks and places that smother your content in ads.”Posterous’s first target: Ning, whose abandonment of the freemium pricing model back in April frustrated a lot of users. Next target: Tumblr, the site that Posterous is probably most frequently compared with. You might be hard-pressed to call either Ning or Tumblr “dying platforms.” Or if you’re Posterous, you might not be. Posterous is clearly calling out and openly taking on its competition. In a blog post earlier this week, Flightcaster co-founder Jason Freedman wrote about the three characteristics he sees in the YC companies that are successfully raising money: Leverage, Product and Ambition.YC alum Posterous is demonstrating that ambition – “pure, unbridled ambition” – hoping to show it has not just the guts, but the product to back that up. How its competition responds over the course of the next two weeks will be interesting to watch.Photo credit: Flickr user REL Waldman 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Analysis#start Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… audrey watters A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts read more
