Big Muddy rancher wrote:My daughter and I branded 400 calves last spring and are set to do it again. Help is the big issue. We are set up inside a pole barn can run the cows thru a Hi Hog pens and tub and S alley thru a Stampede chute. The calves go in the tub and out a door at the back of the S alley into a one calf sized hold behind the Roper calf table. When we are clicking we do a calf in less then a minute. Thats tags ,2 vaccinations, brand, band. and a squirt of Cydecton. We gather in smaller groups have some PB that take pairing to move to other pastures and not as many problems getting everything paired as doing all in one day.. in most cases everybody doesn't put 25 combines in the same feild or gang up to do their haying in a day . We go about our work and GIT R DONE.
PS .it also means this big old boy doesn't have to work on the ground. I can still bend over but my knees wouldn't take climbing off the ground that much.
