MY BEEF SCRAMBLE HEIFER By GABY 8HRY ('«• had almott a year to tak* notea, and think about what I wanted lo tell you about my h*lf*r, but I bawntl I Juat know that I Ilk* eowai I g*t out and work from day to day b*for* *ehool after *ehool, and any other Urn* I haw. I'v* walehtd my calf grow and gain weight, I've ***n lb* w*l|M drop and ah* M*m*d to b* at a ttand *UII for w**k* and I'vo •pant day* watching h*r ration *o that an* would get In* right food to mature to b* a good cow that would ral** fin* ealv**. I admitihar*wereMm**|wnnd«red"what for," lb*n I atand back and look at my IwUer Corlna and I can *** evtrything that ha* happened In m* nine* that day In February, IM3. I caught a calf number 57, ipoMored by Th* Schlumberger well Surveying cor. of llotuton. Mr. ou**l, th* repr***Btatlv» for th* company cam* over an! introduced hlm**lf and hi* wile, and congratulated me on catching the c.lf. I w*nt horn* happyi My f**t hurt from being *tomptd on. Whan my certificate came I bought a Black Angua h*lf*r from the David C. BlnUlff Eatate Ju*t out of Angtaton. Our A*al*tant County Agent Mr. Ke*M, and I looked over the Angua calve* that could be bought and that little calf atood out above all the other*. Corlna WM four month* old, healthy, and hard to handle. I knew then that I wa* going to have aome work to do, but I liked b*r. I teamed rliht away that all calve* can't b* handled In th* lame manner. What t had teamed from working with beef eteer* didn't M*m to work with thu belter. She would *H down Ilk* a mule and wouldn't move. I lietontd to advtc* and augg**Uon* from anyone and *v*ryon», but I wa* determined to teach that calf to lend. A* th* l*«t thing I knew to do l cut th* rim from and old Ur* and the n*M tlm* aba ttartod to alt(tow» when I was walking her, I threw that rim around her backalde.and that ttwtt. I'd had » hard time, but I had to g*t tor ready tor ih* Youth Fair that wa* held tn April. Corlna walked out of that ring champion of th* tour to ala month* old claaa. Cor in* demanded hour* of attention. I had two more animal* to feed and care for, but 1 got around to Item all. tf any bad point* •bowed up I tried to find out how to correct them. Mr. Ke**e wa* always near M the telephone and 1 knew h* ha* apant hour* helping m*. it* had othm to help M there waa a M I bed to do for myaelf. After Uw Bracorla County Fair I had more work to do. Corlna wa* first la her W* claw, but that waan't eren good, b»- C«UM | h*d<« calf that abonld'hav* Ewen ohampton. From the time I bought Corlna *h* had eaten good, mined «te*dlly and had no health problem*, she had become a well trained heifer. She wa* uniformly developed and (tralght in Uw back. She wa*ju*U little •mull for Iwr *w. I didn't know what 1 could do about thin but I would atart on *om*thlng. I etarted by changing her ration. I kept her on the cam* ration for two or Hire* week* and if there waa any change In weight gain or appearance, I'd go to a heavier grain, and finally 1 got a good ration that •eemed to be right for her. Even when I changed her ration though •h* ate on* MM |n*t the mm* a*the other. Th*y Juai dWnt do thl*. When ah* *tartod developing mor* through th* ahouktera than tnehlndquarter»,I*tart- ed wafting her more and I mumged h*r through Uw hip*. I kept bar feed box at Uw correct level •o Wr back dktat get «way*d. Her pen WM clean and twr water cool and fre*h. She had plenty of shade during Uw hottert weattwr, and keeping her out of the mn •Mroed to help her coat of hair ttay black- ef and gkwaler. There arai *o many thing* I haw learned, and I'm atlll teaming. I cant imagine thl* put year not being U tt waa. It I hadn't bean Mtoeted to participate in th* calf *er*moto. If I hadn't caught a eajf. If I hadn't worked with my calf to make tor a Ha* animal, if I hadn't warned anything. ' Jutt think of Uw thing* IwouW have never dope, Uw thing* l would have never teamed, th* work I would nave never, and th* calf 1 would have never caught. I'm looking way out into the future with Corlna aa "Mother" ot a toad of Bn* Angus cattle. Maybe not registered but* good herd for good beef. 1 know M a rancher I could ntverfeed a* I fed Corlna and made money. A rancher haa to manage time and money to make the moat from hi* cattle. I know how careful l have to be with my feed so that 1 can make enough money to pay my bill*, and every day that I can work I'm out trying to make more money. I do think though If t ever do beooma a rancher Uw flrat thing I'll eliminate I* Uw S a.m. feeding. I Jutt don't SM now a eaU can be hungry so dam early, l know I'm not. l gut** my experieneM urn pretty wall covered emept Ibatlhavaleamedalotabout people too. I could never had done this by myself though. Seams to me that my sponsor Mr. Queet never forgot ma. His letters kept me try- Ing to do my very best for htm beeautw I knew now much to had pot Into-thla pro. jeet. Like th* time that my eatf ***m*d to at a itag* that aha Just stood atlll, to wrote me a tetter, aad i k«pt trying. My family baa helped too. ibrokemyarm la August and had a cast on ttfor U week*. I'm aura Corlna would nave shown nagteet Jt my family haunt iwlpad. Daddy fad and Walked my eatt everyday before to went to work at 6 a.m. Ttoy all tolpad clean Uw p*n, keep out water, brush and groom her, and keep feed for tor. 1 oouktat work at that time, but i made aom* money oft my fat steer, and that paid for Uw feed. Mr. KMM, Uw Assistant County Agent, waa always ready with suggestion* that have helped me do so much with Corlna. I'm ready to show my Scramble Heifer Corlna, and. If ah* baa leaned a* much about what l tried to teach tor a* I have •tamed while earing for har, than I'm ready for you to a*e what I have done. I am looking forward to having a hard of beef cattle some day. ScOiH tO Eosttrlilits LAKE JACK«OI»'- BCWrt Comml«*«man W. 'D.
