We pulled cows off 1000 acre pasture we just started renting last year...

Dad is 81 and decided he wanted to ride. He put 15+ miles on that day, but left the big riding for me. Hard to believe how much 2 horses saves. A few days this summer I put on 30+ miles when I was alone.
The next day we brought pairs home from where we staged them the day before. -15C and Dad decided to drive. Our neighbour Dale helped.

A nice May calf following his mom.

Our son got his honour pin

We did some soil testing for biology

Penetrometer reading

Processed calves (booster, ivomec) then put them back out with the cows and moved them to grass. Will wean in a couple of weeks.
We put in a new Tru-Test scale and an ArrowQuip hydraulic squeeze. It is fantastic and very quiet. After processing I sent an email of weights to the feedlot and will price calves this Friday.

Nasty weather there.
A lot better than the 12" of snow in October. The grain guys were pretty stressed out for September/October. We had more rain in 48 hours in September than we had all year. Had some greenfeed down for 6 weeks. Crazy fall.

An Aussie that worked here last year spent the summer in Irma. He was here for a week during weaning and preg test and is back there now clearing land. He plans to be home by Christmas.

He had quite a few weather stories.
