Bull Testing Day

Despite the wind that made our teeth chatter and tried to scatter our materials everywhere, we were able to get all the bulls tested today to get ready for Sale Day.  Thanks to a good crew from Bear River Animal Clinic, Jeff Robison and boys, Robert Briggs, The Ottley Crew, and Barker Bunch we got through another big job safely and with good results.

Thanks everyone for a Job well done!

We seem to be getting all our moisture at once.  It rained all day yesterday, most of the night last night, and all morning long again today.  Here's some different views of the water boiling in the creeks & out!  Might need a canoe to get feed to the cows tonight.

Calving Season & Snow!

The babies are hitting the ground just as the snow is starting to come as well!  The Heifers were AI'ed mostly to Angus bulls Right Answer and Final Answer.  Liking how easy they are calving, but wish they'd come in the day time.   Temperatures were at 9 degrees last night. Checks made every 2 hours.

 Babies came to the incubator to get warmed up & then back to Moms.

We need the snow, so we'll try not to complain too much!
