The other day we branded, vaccinated, castrated and de-horned their babies.
It has been a busy, busy week. And more busy weeks to come.
Tomorrow we will start branding the rest of the babies.
Thursday we will be turning the Angus bulls out with the yearling heifers.
The weekend we have to go to a memorial for a friend of Cameron's.
Monday we turn the Hereford bulls out with the cow groups.
And finish up branding.
Yea, my butt is sore from being in the saddle days on end all day. But hey! I LOVE it!!!
A full pen!
Cameron getting 7 to go into a holding jug.
A baby in the holding jug.
Not bad for a girl with a broken arm!
Sometime the mamas come in the barn to see what's going on.
This mama had twins. And she is caring for both of them. She had a boy and a girl. The girl is what they call a "free martin", meaning she is sterile. Doesn't have a uterus or ovaries. If it was 2 girls, they wouldn't be like that. When you have a boy and a girl, the chromosomes from the boy transfer to the girl and she becomes sterile.
Thanks for stopping by.
