Weaned the calves Sunday. Makes it nice when you can call and then walk them in!

Fine looking bunch.

Sometimes you do have to throw out the babies with the bath water.

Love it when they come when you call them. Congrats on some nice cattle.

Yes, calling is the absolute best way. When you use rotational grazing, you usually can call them out of standing grass. They hear the quad or you calling, they come running. I have a heeler and he never gets to "work" the cattle. If we need one for breeding or something, nephew & I just walk among the cows with a reel of polywire & just sort her out and walk her to the barn.
Good group of cow/calves.

Thanks. Yeah they get moved every week. They hear the gator and come running. One of the best things we ever did.
