Getting those 2 year olds ready to ride

January 12, 2015
tags: ,

This time of year can be an exciting one for horse owners. Many of us enjoy doing the breaking and starting of our 2-year-olds and now is great time to get the process going. The goal of ground work is to make the riding part much easier and less worrisome for both horse and rider. If it takes 6 months or a year to complete the process, that’s ok.

Much attention is being paid to the higher cost of beef, yet sales data and market research show demand for beef remains strong. Beef continues to be a cornerstone of the retail meat case, it’s featured on almost every restaurant menu, and Americans continue to purchase beef, even at higher prices.  New BQA Guidelines

The following set of BQA Guidelines represents recommendations and is the collaborative efforts of veterinarians, animal scientists, cattle industry leaders, production managers and producers to put forward a consensus opinion for achieving optimal outcomes. It should be understood that several different applications and techniques exist for the performance of many of these procedures. This set of guidelines is not intended to be exclusive of any one specific technique over another. These guidelines focus on the animal and are aimed to satisfy scientifically valid and feasible approaches to meeting cattle health and welfare needs.
