Babies leaving home soon

This is a happy time of year for hubby and our finances but somewhat of a sad time for me.  In the spring we had forty + babies born and now they weigh between 425# and 500# and it’s marketing season.  We’re delaying it for a couple weeks because a few have been plagued with “pinkeye” and they are recovering.  I wanted to share some of their pictures before they leave.

They’ve put on about 300 – 400 pounds since they were born and are grazing along side their moms now.  Most will only nurse a couple times a day at their present weight and they’re first to come to the feed troughs which make it easier on them when they leave their mom behind.
