Message Title: Spiker question
Author: Chuck Posted: 06\06\2001 09:15
I have a spiker that began growing his antler last December. Everything was normal, other than the fact that they were quite early. About three weeks ago he dropped his spikes and now is beginning to grow a new set. My question is: Will he be ready to be used on a small group of cows this fall? He is a son of King and I would really like to use him on about 5 cows. I also have a spiker son of White Lightning that grew his spikes in December, but he still has his. Should I be concerned about him as well? I don't want to put them with any cows if they aren't able to perform. Any and all ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
