I haven't been on here in awhile. I never really posted much, just took in alot of valuable information. I am currently a junior majoring in Animal Science with a minor in Soil and Water Science at UF. I am home for the holidays, so I decided I would post some pics of my cows and calves. Most of my cows are old 4-H and FFA projects that I kept over the years. I have built my herd up to 20 head, and my dad takes care of them for me now that I am away at college.

My helping hand, Sadie. I wish I could take her to school with me, but it wouldn't be fair to either of us.

Thanks, I am really happy with the cows this year. I couldn't ask for a better dog, I have had a couple aussies but she is by far the smartest and best behaved one I have had, she's just a little over a year old.
Yes, I am planning on using him again as long as the calves grow good. So far they are nicer than the calves out of my other bull I have been using. The only bad this is I have had 6 calves out of him, I was wanting bulls and have had 5 heifers. I think I am going to do a little AI'ing as well, I just have to get the cows synched so I can AI over spring break.
