    Some amount of calves Soapweed. You have some workload calving that lot. Do you pen each cow as she calves to make sure calves get a suck or just watch them.

    Managing Red Angus Bulls.

    Well christopher, if you can only see your stock every third day then AI is not for you. Good fencing is your piority as your stock could be gone miles in your absence. A battery fence with a tractor battery will last severel weeks. Just make sure it is well secured against theft
