A drive around the cows video.

Postby Silver » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:16 pm

Thought I'd try my hand at posting a video. Sorry about the quality.
We brought them in close to get the calves going on dry hay prior to sale.

What breeds you're using? I can't remember, but these calves are dandies.

You did well. I am surprised that few people post videos on here. It would be usefull when people want an opinion on an animal moving all around them rather than just posting some poor quality snapshots in non flattering poses.

Looks like you got a bit of work to do sorting them out.

Thanks for posting!

I'm surprised all the cows are polled, how can a poor defenseless cow fight all the bears, wolfs and lions hiding behind every tree? Really nice Silver.

I helped out the quality problem by re uploading the video in HD, and editing in in place of the lower quality version.
Not sure why I took it in portrait mode, except I constantly fight with pics in landscape mode getting them to appear right side up on this forum, so maybe I was just being cautious lol. Next time I'll try landscape.

Thanks. Using Simmental bulls these days with a little Red Angus mixed in. There is still a Blonde d'Aquitaine influence in the cows, but getting a little more watered down every year.

Didn't see a cull in the group. Calves very uniform. Well done!
