July 27th - Spring Calves on Pasture
Calving 2015

Its been a week of heat and storms. We have been out of the severe weather here at the ranch and haven't had any storm related damages, but the city of Leola has gotten hit pretty hard with hail. Here are some hailstones that were picked up in the city of Leola and did quite a bit of damage to the houses in town. 

"After the Storm" clouds.

Hailstones picked up in the city of Leola, 9 miles east of the ranch. We didn't get any hail at the ranch in this storm!


We're almost done with our second cutting hay crop. After we bale the hay we move the bales off of the fields with our bale mover and row them.



Our spring cows and calves are all out on pasture and we're getting ready to pre-condition our spring calves. Here are some pictures of the calves out on pasture!


These three calves are out of our donor cows their sires are (from right to left) Schuler Endurance 2101Z (bull calf), Bieber Roosevelt W384 (heifer calf) and a Paringa Iron Ore E27 (heifer calf).

July 21st - Red Angus Summit

This past week we enjoyed travelling to Kansas City, Missouri for Red Angus Summit. We enjoyed catching up with other cattlemen and talking about the changing dynamics in the beef industry! There were many speakers and tours that focused on end-user demand and provided informationabout the unique criteria influencing consumers, chefs, feedlot operators and packers. 




During the first day we visited the Windy Wine Co. and KK Farms Red Angus. Monday we toured Sysco Distribution and The Local Pig, a whole animal butchering shop. It was interesting to see the how an organization like Sysco operates and how The Local Pig is able to add value to a carcass by optimizing each cut and reducing waste. The rest of the Summit was spent with various sessions focused on and around the Herdbuilder and GridMaster Indices. 




We enjoyed our time in Kansas City! Here are some shots of the Windy Wine Co. 



July 8th - Pulling Bulls and Spring Calf Update
Calving 2015

It's been a great summer week here on the ranch. We enjoyed our 4th of July holiday with a long weekend off and time with our families!  




Fireworks over Mina Lake from Eric & Megan's dock.




This past week on the ranch we pulled the bulls from their natural service bunch of spring calving cows. To pull the bulls we set of portable corrals in a few central locations. For most of the bunches we walked the cows and bulls to the corrals and used the corrals to load the bull on the trailer. For a few of the groups we sorted the bull from the cows and left the bull in the pasture. We then combined bulls into a few different pastures with other bulls that we knew would get along with each other. The bulls will stay out to pasture until they are needed for the natural service breeding period on our summer calving heifers and cows. After we got the bulls sorted from the pairs we combined several natural service groups of pairs into three large groups of cows. When we ultrasound these cows we will ultrasound one bunch per day using portable corrals and ranch headquarters. 







Here are a few of our Spring calves:




5 heifer calves from Andras Fusion R236











A bull calf from Bieber Rough Country A523





Here is one bull calf and three heifers all out of Bieber Hard Drive Y120.
