Nice calves Ned Jr. I wish the Herefords had pigment like this heifer, though. F1 Polled Braford born Feb 23, 2015

I don't start calving for another 3 weeks, so this is all I got now.

Hope we get some rain soon, haven't had enough moisture and warm days here yet to get the pastures greened up enough to turn the cows out on. Some pictures from the other weekend of a few calves and a few bonus pics of some yearling heifers since 2 of them are full sisters to a couple of these baby calves

First 3 are of the same bull calf by of a Revolution son that we raised. This is the 2nd year we've had a few calves by him, another Hereford breeder in the state owns full possession of the bull now but we retained in-herd AI use of him and excited to see what his calves look like for them as we really like the few we have had out of him.

Heifer calf by the same bull, picture of her full sister later in this post...

SHF York 19H Y02 bull calf out of a first calf Revolution 4R daughter. We are going to use a lot more of York in our AI program this year

Revolution 4R heifer, picture of her full sister below as well too...

Bull calf out of our Rausch Puckster III herd sire.

I know these aren't technically calves but they are some of last year's calves and really happy with how they turned out.

Thanks for sharing, Ned Jr. Pigment = +/- $0.25lb
Had three people ask about that black nosed heifer already. You probably can sell those before they come off the cow for the price you want.

That is some nice pigment. What is the breeding on them? Kinda of wish we could get a little more of the dark colored goggle eyes and conservative white markings.

Lots of good looking calves on here. Folks have a lot to be proud of. I really enjoy these threads.
