October 20th - Demolition Phase 3
Ranch Updates

The final stage of our Working barn tear down was the clean up!

After the payloader got done with the old working barn.

Piling all of the old steel to haul to the scrapyard.

 

Cleaning up the tin and putting it in an old Hesston stacker. After the Hesston is full we are planning on hauling the whole thing to the scrapyard.

 

In a lot of ways tearing down the working barn was a sad occasion. The building was built with thought and pride, it was sad to see such a big piece of the original ranch get torn down. The building itself was in tough shape and we had outgrown the facilities. We didn't tear it down without some sadness, but our new working barn is built with the same thought and pride and is something that can grow with Bieber Red Angus!

October 16th - Weaning/Stockpiling
uncategorized

It's beginning to look a lot like Fall! We weaned the last of our calves and have brought all of our ET calves home. Two weeks ago we weaned the spring calves off the cows and into the hoop barns. About 10 days after weaning we turned the spring heifer calves back out to pasture and bring them feed once per day. The spring bull calves, ET calves and all of the summer calves are in the hoop barns being fed twice per day. They're off to a good start with very little sickness so far. After all of the ET heifer calves get their Bangs vaccine we will turn them out to pasture with the spring calves. This year the calves weaned off heavier than last year, we are very happy with the calves and the way our program continues to improve!

 

Last week we also stockpiled our high moisture corn. We rent out our farmground to some local farmers and when they start to harvest we put up our high moisture corn. We roll the corn then pile it in our bunker, pack it down with tractors, then cover it for use this winter. This year the whole process took only 2 days! It was a fast/furious corn stockpiling!


Gibb was onhand to lend a helping paw!

 


October 12th - Demolition Phase 2
Ranch Updates

With the sorting corral system cleared outside it was time to start on the demolition of the old working barn. After removing all of the supplies we took out the old chute. We are going to move the chute to our Meier Unit in Long Lake. Having second working facility without having to haul the portable chute up there will be nice! 

While Rod was getting the chute detached, Dillon was torching the interior tub and alley. In the background you can see Craig Howard in the skidsteer with his homemade attachment for pushing tin off of the outside of the building. All of the old tin is being loaded into an old Hesston Stacker. Once the stacker is full we are going to haul the whole thing to the scrapyard! 

 

 

 

Once the tin was off of the outside of the building we used the payloader to bring the rest of it down!

Not sure if this was the safest way to demo a building but it worked!

 

Wow the ranch is looking different, come see the changes for yourself and join us for our Fall Production sale on November 10th!


October 5th - Demolition Phase 1
Ranch Updates

Tearing out the old corral system and working barn was done in a couple different stages. First we tackled the old loading barn and concrete loading chute. 

 

This chute was built to last. After we torched all of the steel off of the concrete, it was still heavier than the payloader could pick up. We had to use both the payloader and skidsteer to pick it up and move it out of the way!

 

 

We torched and tore out all of the continuous fence in sorting corral system. 

After that Dillon spent a lot of time torching out the steel tub/alley both on the interior and

exterior of the old working barn! 

 

All finished outside (Dillon is really sick of the torch...)

 

Check out the new ranch landscape on November 10th at our Fall Production Sale. We are getting the catalogs ready to be sent to the printer in a couple weeks. If you would like a catalog and aren't on our mailing list email your contact info to office@bieberredangus.com and we will make sure you get one!


September 28th - Working Barn Update
Ranch Updates

Working Barn Update:

 

The interior concrete work is done along iwth the in floor heating system. The tin is on the roof, interior ceiling and is starting to go up on the exterior. We're starting to make way for the new outside corral system and to do that we have to start tearing down the old working facility.

 

Start making plans to join us at our Fall Production Sale here at the ranch on November 10th and check out the new building!
