They all goes to the factory here. There was a time when we had a small selection of heifers and a small number of cows, so have left some with not the best character. They all became fine cows, but now better to leave others, than giving the bad ones the second chance.

Finally we have some better weather this fall. All cattle are preparing for winter. Heifers are turning into chubby bears. :)

The yellow heifer which was for culling was slaughtered in October. 58% kill-out. Black however stayed.
The yellow heifer in 4th photo unfortunately got sick and not much of hope that she'll get better.
From other 7- 5 were already AI'd. Two yesterday, one today. All, except one, AI'd with Red Angus bull. Hopefully all will stick and we'll have some red calves next autumn. Two which left might get another bull.
