A few more to Add!

One more day of picturing is done.  It takes a lot of patience & time to get all this done, but it sure makes you feel good when you go back through and see what you accomplished at the end of the day. We kept thinking we would be able to get through clipping faster because they didn't have as much hair, but we sure didn't find that today. Getting excited for preview day, Oct 8th when people can come see  them in person.

Good things to come!

These are some candid shots of the showsteers and heifers from out in the field earlier this summer.  We have had a good grass year here and these are now bunk broke and weaned.  It's fun to see the transformation as you clip them up.  We'll keep adding pictures along the way, so STAY TUNED!!

Hopefully they cooperate a little better than this heifer!  She is saying: NO PICTURES FOR ME!

Getting ready for Showtime!

We clipped up a few more steers & heifers today to get ready for picture day coming soon.  It's always amazing to see what lays under that hair.  We'll keep posting pictures on here as we continue to work our way through them all.
