Summerrain411: please reserve your questions and comments for the end, thank you.
karlen: he can't type

QUESTIONS STARTED HERE:

Summerrain411: ok we are going to start with question 1
Summerrain411: Why are Jr. Breeders charged $150 to veiw the registry?

Summerrain411: answer to 2
Summerrain411: From a competion standpoint January 1 determines a bulls age, so it seemed like a good fit to us.
Summerrain411: question 3

flushfree: aint that about what russ said?
Summerrain411: Which is the ABBI more concerned with presently, registration or events?

Summerrain411: question 4


Summerrain411: answer to question 3
Summerrain411: Registration is always the primary concern, but we feel that good events are the backbone to new growth.
[anerodeo entered room]

Summerrain411: now question 4

Summerrain411: Are you an ABBI boardmember?
Summerrain411: scotts answer
[Steelman entered room]

Summerrain411: My term ended last fall, However I still work closely with the board behind the scenes, and am currently on some committees
[chwyatt left room.]

Summerrain411: question 5
Summerrain411: How can I be sure that a Cloned bull can not get in the registry and destroy the validity of a true son of a bull?

flushfree: oh, I thought you were one!

Summerrain411: scotts answer to 5
Summerrain411: If an individual lacks integrity and registers offspring out of a clone there is noway we can police that, But if they are caught the penalty will be harsh.

[supdg left room.]
Summerrain411: question 6
Summerrain411: How do you like Mud Ducks calves?
[supdg entered room]

Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: I love there conformation and Attitude, but the jury is still out on there performance for the simple reason I have not bucked any yet.
Summerrain411: question 7
Summerrain411: What is your favorite cross?

Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: My favorite line breed cross would be Uncle to Neice, or Aunt to Nephew. My favorite outcross is Blenderhead over Houdini and Slim daughters, and Up in Smoke over Whitewater and Bodacious daughters.

Summerrain411: question 8
Summerrain411: What advice would you give to an up in comming breeder?

Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: Get involved with a breeder with a succesfull program that is willing to walk you through all the do's and don'ts. Also make sure that it is someone that will help you market your cattle, If the cattle come from a certain person, and he knows he is going to help you sell, he will only sell you cat

flushfree: Have any of those crosses won anything or done anything?
JeremyWillis: OMG
Summerrain411: he will only sell you cattle that he can for sure market. There are alot of guy's that will get your money and when it runs out so does the relationship.

Summerrain411: What can the ABBI offer to breeders, what will we get for our hard earned money?

Summerrain411: answer
Summerrain411: For one you will get registration papers, but more importantly your cattle will be eligable to compete for some Big Paydays.
flushfree: about 60% DNA accuracy

CajaRanch: That's about right but Scotts working on it
[mrranch entered room]
Summerrain411: next question

Summerrain411: How does adding money to the Finals attract new members when they can't affford the entry's?

Summerrain411: answer
Summerrain411: The Big Paydays are what attracts the Big Money players, they are the ones that buy the $100,000+ bulls. Those high dollar sales are what I believe drives this industry. It doesn't matter if you can pay the entry fees, because if your bull is good enough someone will.

Summerrain411: next question
Summerrain411: When will the Registry Close?

Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: My guess would be that the registry will be closed within the next five years. There will surely be plenty of warning and it will probably be a half close, meaning an animal will be required to have at least one registered parent to join. This is just my opinion and not fact.

[shock2 entered room]
Summerrain411: next question
Summerrain411: Is the gene pool deep enough?


Summerrain411: next question
Summerrain411: What can the ABBI do to assure cheaters are delt with?

Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: We have strick rules regaurding cheating in place, and our boardmembers crucify a cheater that is caught.

Summerrain411: next question
Summerrain411: What can the ABBI do to ensure that Clones will not effect the integrity of the industry?

Summerrain411: scotts answer


Summerrain411: My opinion is that some breeders are waiting and only registering the calves that buck, and frankly if everyone had this same practice the ABBI would go broke due to lack of Registration.


Summerrain411: next question
Summerrain411: How do you feel that the increase will affect the number of cattle being registered?


Summerrain411: last question
Summerrain411: Should the ABBI have a full list of Cloned animals and Why?
Summerrain411: scotts answer
Summerrain411: There would be no way for the ABBI to know which animals are cloned, I think this would promote more breeders to keep there clones a secrete.

Barmr: Dillion might disagree
[ron_emberton entered room]
[jjharrelson left room.]
4FBulls: scott in your opinion what bull is going to be the next great sire

These are the questions and answers from Scotts email to me.

Question # 1 Why are Jr. Breeders charged &#036;150 to veiw the registry?
Answer #1 This is to keep people from taking advantage of the system. I can't say I like this, but there is no solution at this time. However Jr. Breeders can contact the office if the are doing reaserch or school project and get any info they need free of charge.

Question # 2 Why was January 1 picked for the registration deadline and not a from a year of birth.
Answer # 2 From a competion standpoint January 1 determines a bulls age, so it seemed like a good fit to us.

Question # 3 Which is the ABBI more concerned with presently, registration or events? Answer # 3 Registration is always the primary concern, but we feel that good events are the backbone to new growth.

Question # 4 Are you an ABBI boardmember? Answer # 4 My term ended last fall, However I still work closely with the board behind the scenes, and am currently on some committees.

Question # 5 How can I be sure that a Cloned bull can not get in the registry and destroy the validity of a true son of a bull? Answer # 5 If an individual lacks integrity and registers offspring out of a clone there is noway we can police that, But if they are caught the penalty will be harsh.

Question # 6 How do you like Mud Ducks calves? Answer # 6 I love there conformation and Attitude, but the jury is still out on there performance for the simple reason I have not bucked any yet.

Question # 7 What is your favorite cross?
Answer # 7 My favorite line breed cross would be Uncle to Neice, or Aunt to Nephew. My favorite outcross is Blenderhead over Houdini and Slim daughters, and Up in Smoke over Whitewater and Bodacious daughters.

Question # 8 What advice would you give to an up in comming breeder?
Answer # 8 Get involved with a breeder with a succesfull program that is willing to walk you through all the do's and don'ts. Also make sure that it is someone that will help you market your cattle, If the cattle come from a certain person, and he knows he is going to help you sell, he will only sell you cattle that he can for sure market. There are alot of guy's that will get your money and when it runs out so does the relationship.

Question # 9 What can a Non ABBI member do to offset the high cost of registration?
Answer # 9 Good herd management, know your cattle !!!! This is not a cheap business and if you can't afford to register them, try and sell them to someone that can.

Question # 10 What can the ABBI offer to breeders, what will we get for our hard earned money?
Answer # 10 For one you will get registration papers, but more importantly your cattle will be eligable to compete for some Big Paydays.

Question # 11 How does adding money to the Finals attract new members when they can't affford the entry's?
Answer # 11 The Big Paydays are what attracts the Big Money players, they are the ones that buy the &#036;100,000+ bulls. Those high dollar sales are what I believe drives this industry. It doesn't matter if you can pay the entry fees, because if your bull is good enough someone will.

Question # 12 When will the Registry Close?
Answer # 12 My guess would be that the registry will be closed within the next five years. There will surely be plenty of warning and it will probably be a half close, meaning an animal will be required to have at least one registered parent to join. This is just my opinion and not fact.

Question # 13 Is the gene pool deep enough? Answer # 13 I would have to say yes.

Question # 14 Should the ABBI be divided, meaning registration and competition. Or should the ABBI just get out of the production Business?
Answer # 14 I would say that the ABBI has its different sections allready within itself. I feel that we need to take advantage PBR classics as they are a huge promotion for the ABBI. As of now, if we quit producing events, I think the whole registry will crumble.

Question # 15 What can the ABBI do to assure cheaters are delt with? Answer # 15 We have strick rules regaurding cheating in place, and our boardmembers crucify a cheater that is caught.

Question # 16 What can the ABBI do to ensure that Clones will not effect the integrity of the industry? Answer # 16 Absolutely nothing.

Question # 17 Will the ABBI sell a copy of their rulebook, I like to know what the rules are before I play the game? Answer # 17 I believe you can view the rulebook online.

Question # 18 Why is the penalty so high for calves registered after there birth year. Answer # 18 My opinion is that some breeders are waiting and only registering the calves that buck, and frankly if everyone had this same practice the ABBI would go broke due to lack of Registration.

Question # 19a How do you feel that the increase will affect the number of cattle being registered?
Answer # 19a I don't think there will be much effect at all, because there is only a small % of breeders that didn't register all there calves in the first place.

Question # 19b This rule looks like it will cause people to fudge on a calves birth year?
Anwer # 19b Cheaters never Win, and Winners never Cheat. that one was for you RJP Question # 21 Should the ABBI have a full list of Cloned animals and
