Drum roll please....2015 upcoming Herd Prospects that will be in our sale, March 3, 2015 in Burley, Idaho. It was a hard day to get good pictures, but we continued on and got through a few. There are some "beefy" boys, and it's exciting to see them develop.
|Getting them to pose and get just the right shot to show off their best features is not an easy task!|

Brodey, "Queenie", Kamri, & "Annie" climbed up on the stack of straw bales to run for a while after setting up the picture pen for tomorrow's project. We'll start clipping up the bulls and taking pictures/videos. Let the fun begin!
Weighed 90 head of bulls and averaged 1088 lbs. They are bigger than you think when you get behind them and start pushing them up the chute.
We had to finally get another Dodge truck to replace the good Ol' Tank! The guys have been in process of switching over the hydra-bed and attachments to get it ready to go. Not an easy task.

"Living the Dream" and driving the cattle to pasture in Malta. The snow only lasted a little while today and the cows trailed out well. Only took 5 hours to make the 12 mile trip. The cows will be happy now they are there... lots of feed on the pivots for them to graze.

|Tom Trying the new colt out.|
|Many cars came through and stopped to visit. A couple stopped to take pictures along the way.|
|Even our friends from California came and joined in. Glad you could be here for the fun, Trevor & Mike Schmidt!|
|Thanks for joining the crew today, Aubrey.|
