Bull Feeding Time

The bulls are settling in at their new home in Malta, and this nice weather helped us to be able to get them all clipped up this week.  Now it will be Picture Time!  They know it's time to line up when  they hear Braden firing up the tractor and start mixing the feed.
Getting just the right mix

Come & Get it!

Success Story!

We received the following letter from Rick & Bailey Fernandes, Dos Palos, California.  Thank you for sharing the pictures and update on how things are going with your heifer you purchased.  We wish you the best in the showring and hope for more good "babies" to come.

" I wanted to let you know that the Monopoly heifer (WS511) we
bought back in 2010 is making some awesome babies for us and we are beyond
pleased with her. Her first calf is out of our Ali son calving ease bull.
Her second, and most impressive, is out of a HooDoo Charolais bull owned by
a local club calf breeder. We are hoping to show her this year. I attached a
picture of her and her first calf (both are heifers and will stay in the
herd). We loved how the HooDoo bull worked so we bred her back to him again. By the
way, about half of our herd is made up of Barker genetics :)"
