Oh, Well

I told you all last week about the chores I do every morning. One of those was to feed our small group of light heifers. We’re trying to get them caught up to the rest of the group for breeding. They occupy the main pen in the corral with a couple of my brother’s bulls in the smaller pen right next to them. However, the other morning when I went out there they didn’t have any water.

Morning Chores

This morning we woke up to find that it had rained. It made an icy, muddy mess. But the chores need done no matter what. I thought today I would walk you through the normal routine that I do each morning.

Happy New Year

This is a post that is very free of cattle and ranching. It was a slow week without too much excitement after all the Christmas festivities, but today we took the kids up to go skiing for the first time this year.

For those of you that read my mother’s blog, this will be old news. But since it has taken up a lot of last week, I thought I would talk about it anyway. The old scale house has been needing some work for quite a while now.

Gone Girls

These are the heifers that we have either AI’d or the bulls have bred, but we decided to not keep as replacements. Each year we send them to Riverton to sell them through the sale barn.

Another Way to Roast a Roast

This week I wanted to share another recipe with you, and yes, it is another roast. I promise I will do something different someday but we seem to get a lot of people who shy away from roasts. I know I was one of those people for a long time, and the reason was I didn’t know how to cook them!

Winter Meal Planning

To get ready for winter, we have to think about feeding hay. And we have to know what is in that hay. To help us with this we collect hay samples to send to the laboratory. This analysis will tell us how much protein, energy, fiber, moisture, and different minerals are in the feed.

Winter Pasture

I’m happy to report that our corral repairs worked wonderfully. We brought the cows down from the Mesa on Monday. Tuesday, we put them in the corral and spent most of the day sorting.

Corral Repair

Time marches on. Unfortunately, it takes its toll as it does. My father, grandfather, and their hired hand build our main working corrals in the 70s. So they are almost 50 years old. Parts of them are in good shape and parts are not.

Winterizing

We winterized what we needed to and brought the last of the cows down to the Mesa pasture. They all wanted to keep coming home, but they will have to stay up there for a while, but this snow should melt soon. In the mean time, I wanted to talk a bit about minerals.

Tired of the Bullogna

While we don’t have all of our major fall work done. There are still cows to preg test and calves to wean, but we are doing less haying and irrigating so there have been some chances to work on other projects.
