January 18th - Calving Bonding Pens
uncategorized

We've started calving here at Bieber Red Angus! The temps at the beginning the month were well below zero but milder temps have moved in and it looks like temperatures will be above average for at least the next couple weeks! 

 

This fall we made some upgrades in our calving barn. We added onto one of the sides of our calving barn. This added space allowed us to put in three rows of bonding pens. The cows are kept in the hoop barns until they start to calve. We then bring them down to the calving barn and put them in a pen. There they calve and bond with their new calf. After the pair is off to a good start we then put them in a pairs pen in the hoop barn with other calves that are approximately the same age. When the hoop barn fills up we move the oldest pens of calves out to pasture, the rest of the pens are shuffled down and the newest calves are moved in! 

Here are some pictures from this fall of our construction!]

You can see the new bonding pens in this video!

 

As soon as we began moving pairs from the calving barn to the hoop barns we decided we needed to come up with a better system. Anyone who's tried to walk brand new calves anywhere knows how time consuming the task can be!

 

Head over to our Facebook page to see a couple videos of how we move the pairs to the hoop barns.

 The cows walk and we give the calves a ride!

Once in the hoop barns we make sure each cow/calf is paired before we leave them!


January 10th - Clipping Sale Bulls
uncategorized

Yesterday we finished clipping all of the bulls that will be on teh Bieber Fever XIV sale coming up quickly on March 1st. Start making plans to join us here at the ranch or on DVAuction! If you're not on our catalog mailing list send your contact information to office@bieberredangus.com so you can get a catalog as soon as they come out!

 

Before getting into the clipping chute each of the bulls are combed out and blown off. This removes any manure, dirt and straw from their hair/hide! Rachel and Frankie manned this part of the operation!

Then each bull's head and neck are tightly shaved with a clipper.

 

All of the bulls are then clipped using a propane flame torch. It is a safe way to clip a large number of cattle quickly! The flame is used to blend in the tightly shaved areas with the body and to take long hair off of certain areas. 

After using the torch, clipper are used to finish clip and blend the hair in at the shoulder, over the top, belly and tail areas!

 

Although it looks alarming, the torch is so fast the cattle don't feel a thing!
