Last week we sorted and prepped our sale bulls for their trip to Chatel Farms in Reidsville, Georgia. They arrived early this week and will be ready to view in the coming days. These bulls offer some of our most progressive Red Angus genetics, and will be sold in our Bieber Fever in the Southeast sale on Thursday, October 24.
We hope you enjoy your weekend as we soak up these last weeks of summer on the ranch! Happy Friday!
It's been another busy week at Bieber Red Angus as we precondition calves and ultrasound cows.
For preconditioning, each calf is given an ear tattoo and vaccinations, and a DNA tissue sample is taken. One ear is tattooed with the owner prefix and the other ear contains the animal ID. The DNA sample will be used to verify parentage on the calf and to generate genomically enhanced EPDs.
This video shows our precondition process at the chute. We repeat these steps for each calf that comes through.
In our opinion, summer is best experienced with red cattle and good company. We hope your summer season has been filled as much with those two things as ours has!
