calving

The ranchers out there tonight aren't having much fun. She's a white out. Glad to be done. Might be a little less protein around.

Re: calving

When I started calving this spring, had 7 on the ground. Snowed 8" that night of the super wet heavy sort. 8 new ones the next morning. One was a set of twins. Taking turns putting them in the tractor with me while i hauled out silage and unrolled some hay. One born dead that evening and got him skun out and the twin a new mama. Long, wet day.
98 on the ground now. Half done Smiley Wink

Re: calving

A few years ago I cut my beef herd down to just the kids cows. Only six this year to calve. Half done here all alive and well. Glad I quit calving be beefers in Jan. and Feb.
