Well that girl arrived here as a heifer with a salebarn tag. Think I paid 780 for her, she dropped another fine yellow baldie today. Had to run the black devils off again.

I don’t even know the sex yet, just looked at it through a Vortex scope while battling black devils.

Wished I could have got close enough to video. Action was over by the time I got in camera range. New momma found one of the black devils that had a heart attack.
She was pounding it in the ground while reinforcements coming.

First time heifer showed up second ready to get into the tussle. Her bellering is what alerted me over the tractor noise. She is on point.

How many buzzards does it take to get a Brimmer calf?

These are not Turkey buzzards but Mexican vultures and very aggressive.
Had 35 to 40 after one the other day.
The problem I have ran into the cow trampling the calf keeping them fought off.

Good mommas!
on two occasions my cows (with young calves) raised a heck of a stink.. once was for a grizzly bear, the other time was for two young mountain lions that came prowling.. Yotes here haven't caused me any grief, cows don't seem to mind them much.

They decoy to new calves exceptionally well.

I tried to take a picture a few days ago of some, but they were just too far away to show up well on my phone camera. A huge flock of them, just slowly making a big circle while moving off to the East. If there were less than 100 in the flock I would be surprised.
By far, the largest congregation of them I've ever seen.

TPWD needs to come up with an eradication program.

We saved a calf today thanks to the dogs barking at the buzzards. I thought UPS was here the way the dogs were barking so much.
