First calves have been weaned

Posted by Tim Dixon on Thursday, August 29, 2013,

We weaned our bull calves and some steers this week using these nose flaps called "Quiet Wean". The procedure is you put the rings in, leave with the cows for 3-5 days then take the calves away. Stress is greatly reduced as the bond between the pair has time to break. Bawling is almost completely reduced and so far we are satisfied with the results.
Below is the information on the bull calves.
