April 19th - Branding our Spring Cow Pairs
uncategorized

Last Saturday we branded our spring cow pairs. It was a beautiful day and we had a great crew! Including Ron & Lois's daughter Kristi and grandchildren Grant, Alex and Sabrina from Chicago. Along with many of our local family and friends.

 

We started out the day by working the cows through the chute and gave them their breeding vaccinations and a dose of Multi-Min to prepare them for the upcoming breeding season!

After we finished branding we enjoyed a great meal and music by Seth Anderson. We will have one more branding this summer to work our May/June pairs. Thank You to everyone who came and helped us get the work done! 

 

 

 


April 16th - Happy Easter!
uncategorized

 

Happy Easter from our ranch to yours!

 

We started out the Easter weekend by branding our spring cow pairs yesterday with a great crew of friends and family (pictures coming soon!). After the branding we enjoyed a great supper and music from Seth Anderson. This joyful Easter day we are celebrating with a great meal!

 

 


April 12th - Synchronizing Replacement Heifers
uncategorized

After mating all of our heifers we start the breeding process by synchronizing all of the heifers.  This year we used a 5-day CIDR protocol to breed our 470 replacement heifers over 3 days.  

 

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cayson came to help supervise the crew!

 

 

 

This year for AI sires on these heifers we are using:

 

Bieber LB Mitigator C314

 

Bieber Gladiator C386

 

Bieber Spartacus A193

 

Bieber Driven C540

 

Bieber CL Atomic C218

 

Bieber Forefront B281 

 

Milwillah Marble Bar J53

 

 

 

If we can help you decide on bulls or find semen this breeding season, let us know!

 

Call Craig Bieber 605-216-8169 or 605-439-3628


April 5th - Mating the Replacement Heifers
uncategorized

It's the start of the breeding season here at Bieber Red Angus! Long before we start mating, synchronizing or AIing we are getting ready for the next breeding season by deciding which bulls we are going to use in our program. We are always looking for bulls that will mate well with the different cow families in our program! Once we have decided on bulls that we want in our breeding program we start procurring semen, walking rights and/or purchasing the bull.

 

After we have decided on our bull battery we mate each heifer to an AI sire and a natural service sire. When mating we take into consideration each heifer's pedigree, EPD's and phenotype. We then choose a bull from our battery that will complement her, and create a calf that will advance our and our customer's program! We sit down and talk about each heifer's pedigree, cow family history and EPDs. It's a long process but we feel strongly that thoughtful, intentional mating creates the best calf crops. 

 

Once each heifer is mated to an AI sire and a Natural service sire, we sort the heifers into AI sire groups. This makes breeding day go faster and causes less stress! 

  

 Presley was at the ranch this Weekend and help Papa Craig Bieber and Craig Howard finish all the heifer matings!

 

With the groups all sorted and ready to go we are all set to start synchronizing. We are putting in CIDRs today! Check back next week for pictures!  

 


April 2nd - Happy Birthday Lois!
uncategorized

Today is Lois's Birthday (we won't say which one)! Her great-granddaughters Presley and Kylie are at the ranch this weekend and threw Lois a birthday party!

 

 

 


March 29th - Branding our 2 year old pairs
uncategorized

Last weekend we worked and branded our 2 year old pairs. We had a great early spring day with temperatures getting into the 50s and lots of sunshine! We appreciate all of our neighbors, family and friends who came and helped us get the work done!

Our next branding will be Saturday April 15th. Everyone is invited! We will start working around 9am and work throughout the day. Help as much as you want and feel free to come early, come late, leave early or stay late! Lunch and supper will be served. If you have any questions contact the office at 605-439-3628. We hope to see you there!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

     

 

After gathering the pairs from the pasture we sorted the cows from the calves. The cows are worked through the chute and get their pre-breeding vaccines to help ensure a safe next pregnancy and healthy calf in 2018! 

 

 

 

 

 

After the cows are worked we rope nad drag the calves. Each calf gets 2 vaccines, a dose of an injectable mineral/vitamin supplement and our RAB freeze brand.
