Very nice. I’d be happy with a field full just like that.

The thing with these paticular girls,they came here when I was nearly bed ridden with this kidney failure..and they didn't get the treatment I normally give my replacements ..they ain't missed a beat.stayed in good shape through they're first calf episode and kept rolling..

She does look efficient. Lovely background there with the flats rising abruptly to the hills. Those buildings in the background are they yours?

Those building do belong to this property..but this place I have leased ..it adjoins our farm..I don't use those buildings though .I could and have in a pinch ..but wouldn't want too,someone could be in and out of there before you knew it..you'd have to stand guard over it..but we check it daily..where the cow is standing will be up to her shoulder in flood water probably atleast 3 times this year..

People can talk all day about it being cheaper to buy them but there is nothing like the feeling of making your replacement cows and getting them how you want them. Once you get in a rhythm where you know you have x amount coming in and x amount going out it's a good feeling. Not having to hunt up cattle or worry about where your going to get screwed next is worth every penny.

Long time admirer of Ohlde's program and cattle. Hands down the best Angus bull I've ever owned was an Ohlde. That's saying something as I've had a bunch of well bred high performing Angus herd bulls over the years.

On this we will agree to disagree grasshopper.

I can’t raise them like this for 1200 bucks.
