Despite the cold weather and windy day, we had a good preview of our calves on Saturday, Oct 13. We enjoyed having those who came to join us for the tri-tip sandwiches and hot cocoa was the hit of the day. Thank goodness for a barn that not only warms up calves, but worked well for serving lunch.
Good friends makes it all worthwhile!
Some of life's problems are solved around the barn.
We are very excited for the new owners of Barker Cattle Company Show Calves & Heifers. We have been getting them all settled to their various destinations in Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, & California. It's always humbling to hear kind words such as, "You guys are a class act", or "Thanks for your guidance in helping us select a good calf". That's why we like to stay in touch and are always happy to hear from our customers. We like getting pictures and notes along the way about how they are progressing.
The seasons change quickly, and the work keeps coming just in different phases.

Gotta take time to admire the Fall Colors
The first snow of the season decides to make an appearance this October.
And the cows happily trail onto greener pastures in Malta.
