Seems like we just turned the bulls out with the heifers and now we are pregging them? Yep.
The bulls were put in at the end of April and pulled at the end of May. 33 days to get 'er done. And get 'er done they did! HA!
The vet likes to get here early, 6:30 am early, too beat the heat and just be done with it. I wasn't ready to get up at 3:45 am, but I ended up waking up before the alarm went off. Happens every time!
It was already 72* at 4 am! Yikes! And hot it got today! 100*! Suppose to be like this for the next week or so! Not good. The cows don't do well in this extreme heat.
Imagine weighing in at 1300 pounds AND wearing a fur coat with temps in the 100's! Yeah.
I've been leaving Bandit at home and taking Spook with me to gather cows. I must say for just a 10 month old pup, she totally gets how to work cows. I couldn't be more happy with her. She's quiet, calm and is always in the right spot at the right time. Or can get in the right spot quietly.
No pictures of pregging the heifers. I was at the chute, putting bug juice on the heifers, tattooing, keeping the ear tags rotated and getting covered in cow nasty! YUCK!
Here's a few pics of bringing the heifers in.
Keeping them going straight.
Single file - good girls.
And back up the creek they go.
My favorite view.
Thanks for stopping by.
