Awesome, this was sooooo much easier. I used Postimage.org Yeah, :banana:
This is one of my newborns. Had 7 calves out of 2 year olds from 1-1 to 1-6
The calf on the right is a heifer sired by Executive Order. One on left is a freemartin sired by Grand Fortune

This is my first calf crop. So far, I have 1 bull 92# & 1 heifer 84# (pictured). Both are the right kind for me. As you can see in this picture, she has all the right parts & pieces so far. The 2-yr old dam of this heifer had a water bag at 3am and the calf was sucking at 4am. I right down timing on all the calvings so I can refer back to them later.
If it's not written down, ---- gone forever!!! LOL But, seriously, I have ALWAYS kept track. Same with heats.

Same here. I have a notebook for breeding, calving, heat checks, estrus cycle, and charts for individual vaccination and treatment.

Good I have one cow bred to him this year and we bred some of our sale breds to him. Hillbrands have sold his calves very well.
