That's pretty darn good! We had 19 calves in 21 days and te cows were all bull bred by a first timer bull. He had all the cows bred in te first 4 weeks of being out again so it should be a busy spring :)

Btw those are some darn good looking calves :clap:

Using all my past birth weight data, my farm average is 87 pounds.

The first 9 calves born this fall, averaged 86.4 pounds. Right on track!!!!!

BR - I just realized you do not have your "location" listed. You should list that!

I did. Not far from some big names. Rocking P who know you well. Congratulations to them. Morgan got the ASA Herdsman of the Year Award! They knocked the cover off the ball this year. What a great family!

Also, only few miles from Boyd Cattle Company.

Several years ago I had 17 in one day. 92 out of 93 called in 33 days. In Feb in northern Missouri. I barely remember it. Never seemed to sleep that winter. Gs

This is our Live Ammo this fall. He was born a few days ago. 86 pounds, out of a 9 year old cow that usually throws 100 pound calves. We had two in the Spring, one is pretty good (red bull) the other is OK.

I'll try to get a pic of the red bull, he is a dark red with a full white face.
