Went for a tour.

Post by gcreekrch » Mon Nov 25, 2019 7:18 am

Went for a tour last week. Picked out and bought 3 bulls from a breeder at Armstrong BC. Stopped in Kamloops for an appointment with the Doc that is going to replace a hip for me. Stayed the first night with an old cattle buyer friend and his wife, the second night with my sister in law. Stopped and looked at the calves we put in the feedlot on my way home.
They are doing well.

Will add some photos later.

And a pen of our own heifer calves. The heifers averaged 417 lbs going in.

Still have a dozen pairs out and several bulls missing. Gathering the 70 pairs we bought from a recent widow now. Hoping to have most captured by Thursday when a vet is here for second preg test.
