We're supposed to start at the end of January, but have three so far. Two are the result of a big bull fight that took out a bunch of fence last spring, and the third belongs to a cow we bought in December that was supposed to be six months in calf. :?

They're all fine and having their own little three calf stampedes already, so that's fine with us. :D

Kato,


We have ran into the same thing. Weve had 5 early as a result of the bulls smashing out of their pen last spring. Good strong calves! We dont start til the 10th of February. Maybe if its cold in Feb we'll be wishing we had started early in January. Very wierd year! :???:

The outfit I'm helping haul hay for is supposed to start today. They had 40 today by dark when I left for home, put them well past 100 head in a shade over a week. They are really hoping the nice weather holds!!
