We pulled cows off 1000 acre pasture we just started renting last year...
Dad is 81 and decided he wanted to ride. He put 15+ miles on that day, but left the big riding for me. Hard to believe how much 2 horses saves. A few days this summer I put on 30+ miles when I was alone.
The next day we brought pairs home from where we staged them the day before. -15C and Dad decided to drive. Our neighbour Dale helped.
A nice May calf following his mom.
Our son got his honour pin
We did some soil testing for biology
Processed calves (booster, ivomec) then put them back out with the cows and moved them to grass. Will wean in a couple of weeks.
We put in a new Tru-Test scale and an ArrowQuip hydraulic squeeze. It is fantastic and very quiet. After processing I sent an email of weights to the feedlot and will price calves this Friday.
