That's pretty darn good! We had 19 calves in 21 days and te cows were all bull bred by a first timer bull. He had all the cows bred in te first 4 weeks of being out again so it should be a busy spring :)

Btw those are some darn good looking calves :clap:

I did. Not far from some big names. Rocking P who know you well. Congratulations to them. Morgan got the ASA Herdsman of the Year Award! They knocked the cover off the ball this year. What a great family!

Also, only few miles from Boyd Cattle Company.
