February 26th - Prepping for Bieber Fever VI
Bieber Fever VI - March 6th, 2014

It was another cold week, but it didn't stop the heifers or cows from calving. We have about 175 calves on the ground so far. The natural service heifers and 218 AI bred cows are all starting to calve now. Here are some of the newest additions at RAB!

 

     

     

Last week we worked our replacement heifers. We collected yearling weights, pelvic and hip height measurements, applied a pour on, gave breeding shots and collected a tissue sample for 50K testing.

 

     

     

 

This week we carcass ultrasounded all of the bulls for Bieber Fever VI and our replacement heifers. The ultrasound data will be posted on our March Production Sale webpage before the sale and will be available as a supplement sheet at the ranch on saleday! One of our vets Dr. Muckey is here through the end of the week giving all of the bulls their breeding soundness exams.

      

 

Bieber Fever VI is coming up next week, March 6th here at the ranch starting at 1pm CST. It will also be held online at DVAuction.com. If you can't make it to the sale or watch on DVAuction, call us at 605-439-3628 for our absentee bidding oppourtunities!

Our last producer meeting will be next Wednesday, February 26th at Shed Bar and Grill in Ashley, North Dakota starting at 7pm. If you haven't been able to make it to a meeting yet we would love to buy you supper in Ashley, share our thoughts about what we believe you should look for in a genetic supplier and get to know you and your program better. Contact Peggy at 605-380-8169 or peggy@bieberredangus.com to RSVP!

Hi to the Bieber Red Angus crew! It is so obvious that work on the ranch is hard but reading some of these blogs made it fun. Especially enjoyed the pictures of blue sky! Almost an unknown around here but yesterday was nice so I went to Grand Rapids, had my car serviced & visited a cousin. The lake is frozen solid all the way across, I see fishermen, wind surfers and walkers. I chose NOT to walk across when my neighbors invited me. Smart of me, don't you think? Keep sending those cute calf photos. Love, G Vonie

January 22nd - Collecting Yearling Data
Bieber Fever VI - March 6th, 2014

It's been a nice past week here in Leola. This weekend was gorgeous with temps in the high 30s! We offically started calving heifers this past Monday and so far have 4 calves on the ground. 

 

 

  Late last week we walked the mature cows home from the cornstalks they have been grazing all fall/winter. They're now close to ranch headquarters and will be fed hay, cornstalks and ration through the winter.

 

       

We're always glad to have our dog ranch hands on long drives like this one!

 

This week we collected the yearling data for spring bulls. We measured their hip heights and scrotals and took a yearling weight. 

 

 

Peggy writing down all of the data and Craig Howard taking scrotal measurements.

     

 

 

Taking the hip height measurement. To get an accurate hip height we make sure the chute floor is clean and that the calf is standing up straight. We then place the level across the hip and over to the inches scale printed on the side of the chute.

 

Tomorrow we are taking pictures of some of the sale bulls. Later this week we are also lot ordering the sale bulls for Bieber Fever IV March 6th, 2014!

Hi to all at the Bieber Ranch. Why don't you have any snow? We have a ton of it and would be happy to share. The wind is so strong tonight that it is whistling at my street side door. Those puppies are so cute! I really enjoy reading your blog and got caught up now. We had sun one day so far. Love, G Vonnie

January 8th - Clipping Cattle for Bieber Fever VI

Let our Bieber genetics go to work for you! Be sure to join us on March 6th for Bieber Fever VI!

 

This week at the ranch we had our clipper Zach here to get the bulls and heifers looking great for Bieber Fever VI. 

     


Craig Howard and Mike comb the manure out of each bull, then blow the dirt out of their haircoat before Zach clips them.

     

     


The guys use clippers to tighly trim each bulls head and neck. Clippers are also used to trim the hair along the topline and tail. A torch clipper is then used to lightly trim the hair on the bulls body. After each animal is clipped they are poured with a dewormer.
