Its been one of those weeks when everyday just runs into the next. I was covered either in dust of cow poop! Monday we gathered up all the heifer pairs the wind was HOWLING and it was COLD!! Tuesday we selected our replacement heifers. Wednesday we vaccinated all the feeder heifers and it was 18*! Today we preged all their mamas!
Heifers and mama's on Tuesday.
Bringing in the feeder heifers and mamas on Wednesday.
Up the alley they go. We sort on foot here. Mamas go one way, calves the other way.
Preging mamas today. I am at the chute keeping track of everything. Loading ear tags, cutting tail and painting. Yep, painting. We put a white mark on the "granny" cows and a green ear tag. A yellow mark on the good cows. And bob the tails on the opens. That way if there's an explosion, we know who's who. Easy identification. :) And I get poop on me! ewwwwww
Here's some of the crap on my work table.
Mama cows. Waiting in the pens.
My buddy Leo on stand by in case there is an escapee! Yea he's sticking his tongue out! HA!
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Halloween!!
