Preview Day

A great day for a picnic in the pasture!  We had probably almost as many family attend as potential buyers, but that's what makes it fun.  Good times to remember.

Where it all Began!

I'll be happy if I get a cow!

Great Lunch!

More Pics

We got the last set of pictures done today. What a good feeling!  The calves are really starting to blossom as they are taking off on the grain.  Some of the early ones that we clipped are already hairing back up.  We weighed them also and were pleasantly surprised.  They range from 480 up to 800 lbs so they'll work at about any show there is.  There are some nice calves to choose from.

Lot 18 CS312 Eye Candy Steer...4 white stocking feet. He's Cool!  Will need some time & TLC from an experienced showman.

Caught in the Action!

Sometimes it's fun to film those behind the scenes.  It takes a lot of patience and sometimes just plain luck to get that perfect shot.  The girls have started taking over the Social Media for us.  Kamri is working on Instagram and Aubrey is working on a new Barker Cattle Company Facebook page. Check it out! Whatever it takes to get the word out...we have some great calves this year!

Picture Day Again

Another round of pictures taken today.  They have been weaned for 3 weeks now and getting about 6 lbs of grain/day.    As soon as they hear the 4 wheeler pull in they are lined up at the fence.  They have been getting more used to people walking through them and as we water them will come up and lick us at the trough.  Overall a great bunch of calves and when you get in among them you appreciate them even more.
