It's been a rainy past week, which for August is rare! We had around 2 inches of rain last Saturday throughout the day, and another full day of rain today!
This week we're taking a look at some of our summer calves. The summer cows were AI bred the beginning of August and are currently out with their natural service sire groups. After weaning the summer bulls and heifers are split into their own pens in our feedlot. The summer heifer calves are developed and added to our replacement heifer group to be AI bred in the spring. The bull calves are developed in the feedlot through the winter and are turned out to pasture for the spring/summer months. In the fall those bull calves are brought back into the feedlot and are developed and sold on the Fall Production sale as Coming 2 year olds. These bulls are virgin bulls that have never been offered for sale prior to the Fall Production sale!
Here are a few shots of this years summer calves:
