    Happy Day!!

    Just turned them out on some rye grass for the first time this season. They've been on hay only in a mud paddock for the last 40-45 days. Rye looked ready and they're gonna have to work to keep up, but they were more than willing to try. I love seeing fat happy cows dance.

    I was eating a satsuma (kind of like a tangerine) in the field today and throwing the peelings on the ground. One of the cows sniffed it for a second and gobbled it and started looking for more. Another came over and did the same. They both started looking for more and I threw a section of the...

    POLL auction week?

    Curious as to what most think would be the better selling week. Barns were closed this week for the Fourth here. Tuesday will be first week back after being closed for a week. Too many head to get good prices? Wait a week for avg. numbers and maybe better prices? Don't do much trading there and...

    Look Bred?

    I was out walking in the cows earlier and took some pics. This is Momma, Her 2 year old heifer (late bred) and this years heifer. The two year old we bred five times and I think she finally settled. Haven't seen any signs. So she should be about 7-71/2 months bred. Does she look it? Took some...

    Horn breeding

    Just got back from AI school again at McNeese State in Lake Charles, La. One of the Phd's talked about horn breeding for increased preg rates. Paraphrase: "If you palp the cervix left handed it opens the right horn a bit more. 90-95% of pregnancies occur on the right. Studies show that after 20...
