The cows are basically balancers,all of them raised here and 50% angus-50% gelbvieh..Bull is a homozygus black balancer,came from Judd's in Kansas.I like most everything about them,except too much hair on them.Fescue pasture,not much clover,little lespedeza some years,johnson grass in summer.Endophyte in it,cows in pond and shade when gets warm,can't seem to help that much,just try to get them bred back before hot weather.

Thanks for the response Frank. That was going to be my guess on breeds in yoour herd. They look a lot like mine in this picture. These are all reg. Balancers with a few PB's in there. Your cattle are doing good on the grass you have. You should be proud. B&G

We fence line weaned for the last two years. Both last year and this year I wound up kicking the cows out away from the calves because they seemed to be bawling more than the calves were, which in turn got the calves going. Once I kicked them out where they weren't close to each other it seemed that the calves went to eating better and the cows kind of just forgot about them. I don't know what to think about it. My whole reasoning behind it was to try to keep the calves a little more calm, but it just seemed that they were more worried about the cows causing a ruckus on the other side of the fence. I'm not sure I'm sold on it.
