July 23rd - Spring Calf Updates Round 2
Calving 2014

 It's been a gorgerous summer week, perfect for haying. We've cut all of our first cutting and have a bit more to bale including our forage barley which we just cut. 

 

We have our spring calving cowherd in two large bunches now after pulling the bulls 2 weeks ago. Last week we featured some spring born calves out of the younger cow group (mostly 2yr olds and 3 yr olds). This week we have some feature calves out of the mature cow group.

 

     

Two bull calves out of Bieber Rollin Deep Y118.

A heifer calf out of Bieber Stormer Z433.

     

Two bull calves (above) and one heifer calf out of Bieber Rouse Samurai X22.

July 16th - An update on the Spring calves
Calving 2014

This past week has been quite cool all over our great state. This upcoming weekend and through next week it sounds like this will all disappear to be replaced with high 90s!

 

Last week we pulled the natural service sires from the spring calving cows. The pairs were then moved from their small natural service sire groups into 3 large groups of pairs. The calves are really growing so far this year!  

 

 

     

 


 

Here's a bull calf (above) and two heifer calves (below) from Andras Fusion R236.

 

     

 

 

This pair is a GMRA Make It Easy 8226 daughter with a bull calf from Andras Fusion R236.

     

Two heifer calves out of Bieber Hard Drive Y120.

This pair is a Paringa Iron Ore E27 heifer calf out of a LSF Takeover 9943W 2 year old cow.

A bull calf (left) and heifer calf (right) from Schular Endurance 2101Z.

We hope the calves and grass are growing in your area! 


July 9th - Changing Landscapes
Ranch Updates

Happy 4th of July! We thank all the brave men and women that have fought for this great country's independence! 

 

 

  We spent the fourth at Mina Lake with a fierce beanbag tournament, fireworks and plenty of great food! 

 

 

 

 Ranch headquarters looks quite a bit different now since we tore down the big white silo a few weeks ago. There also used to be an old wooden grainery next to the silo that fell down this past winter in a blizzard. Here are some pictures of the demolition action!

 

    

 

    

 


 

We're still getting used to the new view! The plan is to put continuous fencing where the silo used to stand and create a more seamless loadout area.  

 

The wonderful weather this past week has allowed us to get a lot of acres cut & baled this past week! 

 

 

 

 

 

 


July 2nd - Ultrasounding our Replacement Heifers
Breeding Season 2014

The weather has been a bit cool with a few showers throughout this past week. This upcoming week though sounds like perfect haying weather with low chances of rain and temps in the mid-high 80s all week. We're planning to cut hay through the weekend. 

 

Today we pregnancy ultrasounded our replacement heifers. We AI bred these heifers on April 28th and sorted them into their natural service groups. We pulled the bulls on May 28th and combined all of the natural serivice groups into one large group. Since then the heifers have been out grazing on some rented pasture we have near Long Lake, SD. Earlier this week the guys set up our portable corrals in the pasture, and we started the morning by gathering the heifers. 

 

The vets brought their portable chute which we connected to our chute/alley. A catch pen was also located in front of the vets chute to hold the open heifers. The opens were given a CIDR and will be set up to get AI bred again to join our summer calving herd.
