Who's 'smiling' now?

We turned the angus bulls out with heifers today, in hopes of a January 30th due date for them. We will leave the bulls in with the heifers for 32 days. Then the angus bulls get put in with the cows.

We will turn the hereford bulls out with the cows on Saturday, in hopes of a February 3rd due date. We leave the bulls in the cows for 62 days.

We put the angus bulls in with the heifers because they (the bulls) have smaller babies for the heifers. Pulling calves or having to do a c-section is not fun.

A few of the boys waiting to go see the heifers.

Some of the heifers, waiting for the boys. Heifers are such curious creatures. I was on my horse, and they follow you instead of going away from you. They just hustled right up to me and sniffed my horse like who are you and what are you doing here?

More heifers.


Whats so funny? Looks like he's laughing.....
