Nice May day

Postby lithuanian farmer » Mon May 08, 2017 2:10 pm

Finally had some warmer weather with sun. It's been cold and wet. Still very late spring. Some photos of heifers and young bulls.

Some outwintered heifers, due starting the end of august.

Nice pictures as always.. 1100 is a pretty good weight for a yearling on grass :)

Thanks. All youngstock went out on grass only last week. They have been fed hay and meal during winter.

Nice looking bunch. They came through the winter really well it looks like. They should really come on good with the warm weather and grass starting.

Thank you. Yes, very happy how they look after winter. We've improved feeding since last summer, so it shows good results. Next winter gonna replace a part of hay with haylage. Hope for even better results.

The red bull's full brother last year had kill-out of almost 67%. High expectations for this boy too. His dam had the 1st heifer this year. Really want to leave her as replacement.
