Well, I still can't embed video, but here is a shaky, dizzying, not entirely clear tour through some of the pairs today. :cboy:

I didn't think it was all that shaky. I enjoyed seeing your cattle up close and personal.
You're not paranoid, they really are out to get you!

Good video Silver. The cows look content but give the impression they are longing for a bit of a chew on some nice new grass now.

Love all the calves nestled in the bedding - as it should be.

Thanks. I think we are all longing for some green grass at this point.

Cattle look great, the loggers here would love to have a whole tree chipper working in the woods behind the cows.
My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Thanks. I wish the loggers here would be willing to pay up, I have 160 acres of that stuff I'd really like to turn into pasture. Even though I have a dozer it's still big dollars to get it cleaned up and broke.

Seen a few acres of timber bring $7,000 an acre about a month ago.
I just sold some junk timber for $1500 an acre and they are chipping everything.

Maybe I'll hold onto mine until these guys want to pay up!

Big thing they want here now is white oak logs to make whiskey barrels. I'm 70 miles from where they make them.

Looking really nice. Love to see those calves with more traditional simmental appearance- red and white!

I think it's a pretty good video, far better than I could do. Love seeing all the calves and cows eating and lounging in the hay. Are you using a hay unroller to lay it out like that?
