This week was a great fall week with temperatures starting out in the low-mid 40s in the morning and rising to mid-60s through the day. We're hoping this weather persists for a couple more weeks! We brought in our last set of embryo transfer calves (ET) this week. Our ET calves are implanted into cooperater herds, those cooperator's cows raise the ET calves from birth to weaning. After weaning the calves are brought to our ranch where we work them through the chute and give them their weaning vaccinations, re-tag the calves with our yellow tags, and tattoo them with our breeder ID and the calves indiviual ID number.
Here are some shots of us working the last bunch of ET calves this week!
Craig using a reference list to make sure each calf is re-tagged correctly, and setting the tattoo press with the right calf's ID number.
Both Mike and Tom (on the chute's left side) were giving each calf their weaning vaccinations.
After the calf has recieved it's vaccinations Mike re-tags each calf with our yellow tags then Mike tattoos our breeder code in the calf's right ear and CraigH tattoos the calf's ID number in their left ear.
We're putting up two 480 ft Hoop Beef System calving barns. So far they have the covers, and concrete back wall up on both of the buildings. Currently they're pouring the cement pad for the bunkline and apron.
This shot was taken after the crew got the cover up on the first building.
Here they have the cover up on both of the buildings.
Here the crew is working on pouring the concrete pad for the feed bunkline in front of the building. They have also poured the apron and set a few steel posts inside the building.
We hope to see you all soon at Bieber Fever VII here at the ranch on November 13th!
