big calf there! Nice pictures, but it looks cold

It is cold Nesi. That calf came out the side of the heifer in the previous photo. We sourced 8 heifer bulls from a different supplier last year and one or some of them aren't sleep at night calvers.

Spring can't come soon enough.

Is the icebox to keep things from freezing????

Ken


Among other things, yes, on some days. It contains tag pliers, elastrators and pliers, transfer needle. Intra-Nasal vaccine on a bottle top gun. and a bolus gun for administering Toltrazuril capsules for each newborn.

I have another I carry when doing health checks that carries a selection of drugs.

Today actually got to +5. We were bare last year at this time. Winter is definately keeping her clutch on the frozen north this year.

And you aren't even really much north of me.. what, 100 miles as the crow flies? maybe 150? We're close to 20C here on a good day.. don't have too many of them yet, but I let the heifers graze a little around the yard

Great photos Dave. Altitude makes a big difference, we are at 960 metres and significantly colder than all around us, of course nothing like what you have, we also have lattitude in our favour and Australia being surrounded by water is a big help.
