    Pulling Trailers or RV's

    So, is this still the "trial phase" of this job or are you committed? Have you put in your notice yet???? All I can say is God bless you for still being able to pass the physicals for that firefighting after 47 years and the health issues in between..... I'd never be able to do it.

    Disposing of baleage wrap

    We hate the plastic wrap and seldom use that particular baler except if the sisal twine round baler breaks down. Custom bale hay for one that wants the net wrap. We use sisal for everything. We may see a little more "waste hay" that is just put back into the ground as organic matter and...

    Culling by age?

    Age is down on my list of culling reasons. ATTITUDE and CONDITION are first..... raising a good calf and keeping on weight.......breeding back on time. Udder and teats..... Smooth mouth is not a big concern if they look good and they are milking good so the calf looks good......feet and legs...

    Pulling Trailers or RV's

    Okay, guys. I am about half moved into the new house. Expect to get more settled in by the end of Feb as there are things that need doing yet. So, let's see how it goes and maybe when it gets closer, we can see how things shake out, and before everyone gets too busy with spring stuff... we...

    Twins... maybe

    I had a bottle calf for 2 days then she took the 2nd one back.... then one of my jersey's calved and I grafted 2 calves on her so she raised 3 that year. That's why I like my nurse cows, I can switch calves around if I need to.

    Twins... maybe

    By the way, I still have the live twin, and she is working on her 3rd or 4th calf.....have to look up to be sure. I still have the cow too, but this will be her last year. She is part holstein, and wouldn't take any graft calves and her udder is getting bad and tired of her BS.... took grafted...

    Georgia run off today.................

    AOC and others are saying that the republicans should be monitored and that those that supported Trump need to be on a register so that they can never hold any type of public office or be able to work in public jobs.....and the anti-jewish sentiment is getting pretty rough..... I'm very afraid...

    Twins... maybe

    I had a heifer in the lot, to calve on a Friday with a dead heifer calf. I got a calf to graft on her since she was trying so hard to get that dead calf to get up to suck....... Took the grafted calf and let it nurse with no problem Sat. Sunday morning was fidgety and by Sunday eve NOTHING...

    Cost to board heifers

    Another thing to take into consideration. I am thinking that maybe the heifers are there because of needing a "safe place" to get them grown without the chance of a bull getting to them? If they were to get bred accidentally too young, then you are looking at lute and all that to abort, and...

    Cost to board heifers

    Most heifer growers here, that raise dairy heifers up to freshening, get in the neighborhood of $1.50 TO $2.25 per day. So I have to agree with @Rydero .... you are being very generous. But if it makes things easier/better for you then you are paying for the convenience. Are you satisfied...
