Calving is half done

Posted by Tim Dixon on Tuesday, January 29, 2013,
With 32ncalves on the ground we are just over half done for the season. Last week was extremely cold here (-30 degrees celcius windchill) so the poor little guys had a rude awakening to the world. Lots of straw and momma's love keep the newborns warm but when the temperature dips this low a little extra protection is needed for the ears.

It looks like it is going to be a bull year, of the 32 calves so far, 22 are male!  14 of the calves are purebred angus and 10 of those are male!
