Last Feb/Mar we increased the herd by about 100 more head....then had quite a calving season. Not that we had a lot of problems, but...COLD...which makes for a lot of work.
The summer was spent fencing, building a workable set of corals at the new place, trying to scrape up enough feed, as we had quite a drought, and dealing with pink eye in 3 out of 4 herds.
Fall was spent, as usual, moving, weighing, preg checking cows, and working at the local Stockyards.
We were privileged to host a couple of ladies from Germany and New Zealand through late summer and fall as well. And 2 from eastern Canada in the spring.
And finally, now we are busy gathering, getting the cows all home for the winter and Scour vaccinating them all.
