    Fall calving

    First set, momma didn’t know she had two and couldn’t remember where she hid the first one, kind of a rodeo for a couple of days. We put them up for about a week, she claims every calf in the field now. 2nd set was born about 30 ft from our corral field, so we just put them up together to be safe.

    Fall calving

    Do you keep them in a more confined space for a few days or just let them go?

    Fall calving

    Been pretty eventful so far for us, 4 cows w 6 calves on the ground. We are just a 20hd deal so 2 sets of twins right out of the gate is a little different.

    Heifer Starter Kit

    He sold a 2yr old bull in another auction this week for 10k, marketed as a herd starter. 30k for a 6hd starter kit sounds like a heck of a tax write off.

    Heifer Starter Kit

    Saw that myself, don’t know the guy other than a few YouTube videos. Appears to be a better marketer than farmer.

    Rotational grazing

    @BFE Found this thread and wondering what you ending up doing on number of days in each, how much rest, advice, do's or don't's etc. I have 2 10-12 acre fields and 2 that are 5-6 acres each, 3/4 fescue.

    Six Weeks Fescue

    Cows don't seem to graze it after it gets to a certain height and don't think it has much nutritional value. Thinking I can have a better pasture than what I currently have going, but grass is always greener on the other side.

    Six Weeks Fescue

    Thanks, I was hogging when I took those pics. Trying to plan a little for the future and weighing my options.

    Six Weeks Fescue

    @BFE that makes sense with my deal, lightly disked last fall to broadcast some clover and this mess came up. On the treflan when you say early are you meaning early after reseeding or early in the year?

    Six Weeks Fescue

    Any advice/best practices on eradicating six weeks fescue? It has started taking over a section of a pasture, located in north central Arkansas. Attached a couple of pictures for reference.

    Fertilizer is on the ground

    I got some jumbo ladino from Nixa hardware, hard to beat their seed prices.
