Notes from the Chief

Magic number is… 58! That’s just a tish higher number than my ex-wife’s age. Fifty-eight cows have come in. With the losses, the three sets of twins and the three we sold I think the number of calves running around is 53 calves on the farm and 23 or so to go. 

Looking at the numbers and calving dates, 70 percent of our cows calved during the first cycle. Meaning that the bulls did their job those first three weeks of the breeding season. 

The calving pasture is nice and dry with the calves having clean dead grass to be born on. This has helped curb our losses as we have not had any sickness the last couple years. It seems that the last two heifers to have their babies have milk. The last one is still in the corral so we can keep an eye on the situation. Dad tried to feed the baby milk from a bottle and he did not drink any. This tells us that he is getting enough nutrition from his mama. We did sell seven of the 11 first calf heifers due to very little milk production.
