(Neil was gonna climb up the side and just as he grabbed the edge a cow peed out the ladder, lol he waited till she was done before climbing up)
Then Sunday was the big day. It was such a nice day, seemed wrong to wean when its nice out! Usually its cold and sometimes snowy, but not this time. I was cooking but I managed to make it outside and get a few pics, not sure I was any help they had it pretty well under control. Its kinda a routine and our corrals are pretty easy to use with a couple people so went well as always, except the kinda wild cow we have. I dunno where she cam from but she was up at the pasture and she run the pasture rider up the fence, she didn't like people too much. I thought our only kinda wild cow had horns and an orange tag and this cow has neither. She is better in a herd, but kinda highheaded still and so she is going away this fall. To bad too cause shes a nice looking cow, but we don't need that kind of cow. We sold all our calves this fall, first time ever for this place, but I think we are gonna keep no heifers and just buy young cows. Will be a little different but should work better for us.
(pretty full moon that morning)
(all our cows in the corral)
(trying to hide)
(our beef heifer, she was so quiet too bad she was open, hmm no calves
what are we gonna eat next year!?!?)
(the steer calves)
(the heifer calves, I couldnt see the screen, guess it was a little sunny!)
(and off they go, two trucks this year)
The sale on Monday went well, our steers sold higher than last year but the heifers a little less, overall not bad, had a bunch of 46 heifers (we only sold 80) so that was nice. We were pleased and we actually got more than the internet sale they had this morning, so I guess sometimes the auction house is the place to go, they all know our calves and so I think that makes a difference.
