10000 words worth.

Started out with gathering and moving cows closer to a set of facilities so the calves can be vaccinated.

They were scattered all over the place.

Takes tenacity to find them all. Good thing for a few hills to climb for reconnaissance purposes.

Getting some compliance.

Heading the right direction.

Cheating a bit, we use any and all the advantages we can find.

Moms like the new paddock while these calves want to go back.

We have a local birder that has hundreds of bird houses around the community.

Your weather was similar to here with the exception that our moisture was in the flake form. Wrapped some silage bales and replaced some broken pickup tines on the baler in a snowstorm, if nothing else I have part of my pre-2012 haying preparations done. :D

Sunny and -10 this AM, will get another 30 silage bales wrapped up today and then see if the weather permits to cut some more. The grass is still surprisingly green for this time of year here.

Cattle look really good Per, are you going to stay with the same program or sell calves off the cow?

Buy high sell low. I'll keep the calves and maybe try to put weight on them faster rather than deferring until grass. If I sell them we would probably buy something to use up this feed store with anyway. Might just as well be my own.
