What exactly can we do so far on this game?
That pesky Shorthorn popping up again. Just thought I'd let you know.

So you're telling me, as far as cloning goes, you mentioned about cloning a steer that I'm assuming is a multiple grand champion or multiple breed championships and you want to keep showing that same steer continually? How very sportsman like. What about other people trying to win something with their steers or whatever? So you just want to monopolize the game to your liking?
I am completely against your ideas that you've stated while playing showcattle. Perhaps you should create your own game, or take over showcattle when Jeff is done with it and you can add all these things to that game. This game here is not about how much a player can monopolize. Read it again: Jeff has already stated that he's getting away from showcattle and this game will not be like it.
If you've done anything with your ranch on here, you will start to see where you are building skills. Fitting, ET, AI, bull breeding, semen collection, and others. I've already bred 14 generations of Charolais cattle. All 100% starting off with a purebred Charolais bull, a Hereford cow and 3 Angus cows. Albeit these are generics right now and I can't register them, but at least now I have skills!! And I'm figuring things out now, before the game starts.
No offenses meant, just giving my honest thoughts and opinions about things. It's good for people to communicate.

That nasty Shorthorn just wants in on everything!!
This should be for the 100% Angus and 50% Shorthorn bull calf.

Thanks Jeff. I certainly don't want this to be another feeder cattle operation game.
Personally, I would really like it if when breeding our cows, that they stayed true to the breed. Everyone is just going to have to follow breed traits and learn how to breed the right animals to get those traits that their animals lack. It was just too easy on Showcattle.com to toss animals to the packers, you got your money and not another thought about that cow. Unless you're heavy into the showing aspect of it, and then the competition is on! You don't get to be #1 in a breed because you slacked off and didn't care. I do care. And I'm #1 in several breeds.
I also would like to see the halterbreaking aspect. Kudos to whoever posted that. Having an animal in the showring must be under control. Unless it's a pen class, I guess. Grooming is another option. The whites on them coats gotta be white! Just kidding on that. Interesting thought though.
My main point is to have animals breed true to their breeds, without a ton of all this cross breeding right and left. What you select in your starter pack is what the breed will be straight up.
