Welcome to Stickley Cattle Company
Raising Registered Texas Longhorns and Selling Longhorn Beef in Virginia
SCC Farm Update
Been a little while so I'll catch everyone up on the
last few months. We finished up our second cutting on hay which turned
out pretty good. We where hoping to get a third cutting to make sure
that we didn't have to buy any this year. Third cutting on hay didn't
work out because the weather turned off very dry.
Good thing is we
got our Horn Showcase animals out of the pastures and penned up to get
them in peak condition to show them off at the HSC. They are looking
fantastic and are excited to watch them compete. One thing I would like
to do is Thank our local co-op Southern States in Marion for the
sponsorship and making us a high quality diet for our Longhorns. We are
going to post some numbers on how where these Longhorns have grown off
this feed diet.
We weighed Outlawed Spice after we got him off the
spring cows he was breeding and he weighed in at 1210 pounds on
8/25/2019. We will post his weigh before we take him to the HSC. Also,
2bar2 Cristal is one of the big long frame heifers that is hard to fill
out. We got her filled out and looking very nice. She is really pouring
on the lateral horn. We attended the East Coast Longhorn Classic in
Culpeper, VA. Once again it was a fantastic event. We managed to pick up
two new great additions WPR Peanut a very nice brindle heifer that came
back home with us after negotiating in the loading dock (Got to love
that!). The other addition was a Tejas Star daughter RRR Miss Starie 090 a
75.5" TTT cow with beautiful horn twist that is 5 months bred to Cowboy
How is everything else, decent. Looking like we will have
to start feeding hay sooner than expected due to extreme dry
conditions. That's farming you just adapt with what you have been given.
Some things you just can't control. We are getting ready to finish up
calving for the year with two cows to go EL Kool Sara and RespectableSun. The are both going to calve to Aftermath anytime now.
