I was on heat check duty today and decided to take some pictures.
Edit: I was supposed to be doing stuff while taking these pictures, so to elaborate a little more...
These are the beginnings of my herd. If you have any comments, go ahead a leave them. I have tough skin, sorta :) .

Thanks for the pictures. Some nice looking cattle on some nice grass.

That bare spot on the right rear of the Angus cow - is that part of a brand or just a bare spot?

The reason I ask is that I have a calf about 2 weks old with a bare spot that looks a lot like hat but more near his rear. Otherwise he looks healthy but I was just wondering what it was. An acquaintance says its from the cow licking the calf but that does not seem right - have not seen it on other calves.

I specially like the two bull calves - looking for some mischief! Jim

Thanks! The patch on that cow is a combo of shedding and getting ridden by other cows (she just got AI'd a couple days ago) and the hair seems to rub off easier by the brands. And those 2 calves are very mischievous, they chased the dog all over.

The grass is great now. It always looks good in May, hopefully we get more rain, otherwise it starts drying up by late June :frowns:, then we have to wean in July :frowns: .
