Always glad to answer questions tt.
A gate is a door if you will to get from one pasture to the other. Porta in Spanish

Makes perfect sense when you put it that way.

Big bucks, nice pair!

Here's what I think is looking like my best heifer this year.. she's VERY headstrong and bossy, so I'm getting a head start on halter breaking her. She is part of my linebreeding experiment, her maternal grandmother is her paternal great grandmother, and has the same grandsire on both sides.. by far the meatiest calf of they year

Image

Image

I have a full sibling mating that looks really good (but has a little much chrome), and a mother-son mating that is growing like a weed, one of the younger calves at a month old now and is as big at the 8 week old ones...
Then I have a pair of steers, I call them "Big blond" and "Little blond".. only about 1/4 related, but absolutely similar.. and both are pests!

Here are photos of some of our Murray Grey calves.
704- AI sired heifer pictured at 39 days
Image

707- Bull calf sired by our herd bull, Tony. He had a 78 lb birth weight and is pictured here at 7 weeks
Image

709- AI sired bull calf pictured at 6 weeks. He had an 82 lb birth weight and is one of our growthiest calves.
Image

714- A Tony sired heifer pictured at 24 days
Image

717- Another bull calf out of our herd bull, pictured here at 27 days. He is 75% Murray Grey x 25% Angus. His dam is currently 7 1/2 years old and has raised a replacement quality calf every year since she was a first calf heifer.
Image

Both AI sired calves are out of an older Murray Grey bull named Balmoral Elation from the 1970s and 1980s.

Well after her first calf was all black the last 2 have been all chromed up. At least she raises a whopper and dock aint much when they are real beefy.
