We're still grass finishing Galloways, Highlands and crossbreds.

Our first purebred Highland calf and Momma. Quite a fuzzball.

Man are those cattle ever built solid! That calf (the fuzzball) may not be as cuddly as he looks? :wink:

Hi folks, sorry for the slow response, got busy for a couple days. He weighs about 1900 right now, haven't weighed him in a while. He is a frame score 3.5-4, never seem to get the same measurement on him twice when he's in a chute or alley.

As for pedigree Mr. Blegen, his tattoo is PCS 11T if you want to search the database. Or click the link here:

His sire and dam were here at our place on shares with Randy Kaiser when he was conceived. He's never had grain. Very happy with his calves thus far, his first daughters will calve next year. He's a little tight hided, almost too much muscle for grass finishing, but the progeny are doing it so I guess we're making progress. :wink:

And a couple other girls that could miss a few meals and it wouldn't hurt them, although I'm sure they never will.

Cows look good.

Grass is much greener than ours, but we are better off than others, so not complaining.
