    Replacement Heifer winter feeding

    We winter replacement heifers on stock-piled grass, hay, mineral and cubes once a week to keep them handy. Start 'em out like you expect them to hold out. That being said, we're in North Central Texas so we deal with little to no extreme cold and snow. We do have to contend with cold rain, though.

    Pen renovations

    I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures. We could use a renovation of our pens but it keeps getting pushed farther down the to do list.

    How to lose money cutting calves

    Was this on Saturday? There's nothing like an ER visit on Saturday night! I bet that hand's sore today. You're a lucky man you didn't do more damage than you did.

    Fair pay

    I haven't paid anyone to chisel plow;however, this late spring we did pay to have 60 acres disced, smoothed with drag, seed broadcast ( that we provided ) and rolled. The total cost was $4,000.

    Friday evening

    I'm sitting on the front porch watching the cows and calves graze by while enjoying an adult beverage and counting my blessings. What a great way to spend a Friday evening.

    We've had a dry spell since mid-June. If I remember correctly, we've had about 2" since then - a quarter inch or less at a time- up until yesterday.

    We've been blessed with 2 inches of rain this morning and it's still raining. Thank you, Lord, for answered prayers!

    Establishing WW B Dahl

    IF you get a nice stand of grass, you can graze it lightly. Next year's crop depends on not only the seed produced but the plants from this year. I don't doubt that WW B Dahl is expected to be $25/lb next year. I paid $20/lb this spring from Turner Seed in Breckenridge.

    How far does everyone else let there boots go?

    just about as far as you do. The soles on my old Ariat work boots were coming loose earlier this summer; I used gorilla glue on them and they're good as new now. ;-)

    Sale barn chances

    If you're serious about increasing your herd with some good doing females, you might try buying some heifers from a neighbor or friend. That way you at least know a bit about the herd they come from, conditions where they were raised, etc. I rarely sell heifers at the sale barn unless it's a...

    .....or May like it some years. Either way that makes for looong summer. The heat's suppose to break here by the middle of next week - highs back in the mid 90's. I'm thankful for anything below 100 this time of year.

    Solar Farms

    Good thing they pay the taxes. We purchased some land last year that had been ag exempt forever. For some reason, when the tax bills were mailed the ag exemption had dropped off ( even though we had contacted the tax office). The bill was $7800 and change! When we contacted the tax office, they...
