Working Ranch - March 2018

Keep those letters coming: Editor PO Box 91269 Henderson, NV 89009 tim@workingranchmag.com Heard it on the radio I have a couple of questions about the Reloader 250® Mineral Bolus from Cargill Animal Nutrition you featured on the Working Ranch Radio Show in January. You mentioned it lasting for 250 days. Does a mature cow need two of these administered at the same time? And how much does it cost per bolus? Long-time Listener EDITOR: Good questions, Long-time. According to the package, the dosage is one bolus per 440 lbs. not to exceed two boluses per animal per 250 days. So yes, that means a mature cow gets two boluses. We found them for sale online at a vet supply for $124 / 20 count box, with free shipping. Do the math, and that equates to $6.20 / each x 2 = $12.40 per mature cow. The balling gun was available online, too, for $79.95 including shipping. And now … a peek at the WR Facebook Page She’s ready This is Brynlee Lyday; her parents Brent and Michelle Lyday are both realtors in Durant, Oklahoma. “Brynlee is our seven year-old daughter and this picture was taken at Trinity Ranch, (owners Seth, Alandra, Timmy, and Sam Everhart). It was very foggy and she was saddled up ready to gather. She helped rope, and drag calves to the branding fi re.” Bosie is my horse EDITOR: This was a photo that was shared on our WR Instagram account by cowgirl Shelby Massie. We asked Shelby to send it to us for Kid & Critter Corner. “I would be HONORED to :)”, she replied. “My son’s name is Koda Philip Asay, and is three years old. We are located in Carbondale, CO. The mare he is loving on he calls ‘his horse’, haha, but she’s my heel horse and he loves her. She’s a fi ve year-old Rap Cat mare named Bosalita but Koda calls her “Bosie” for short. You can always fi nd them in the stall loving on each other. Never have I seen a horse take care of a little boy as much as what she does and for as young as what she is. Nor have I seen a little boy so in love with his girl… and just forget about trying to get him out of the saddle and a rope out of his hand!” fans 10 I WORKING RANCH I MARCH 2018
