Just a peek at what’s entailed in keeping our cattle and calves in good health. I don’t know what we would do without our daughter’s help. Farming is in her blood!
Eartags to match mom and calf in the event of health problems or heifers kept on the farm.
Baby shots to keep them from pinkeye, blackleg, lockjaw, and other diseases.
Castration to prevent inbreeding while on the farm. Cattle start early!!
Mother’s waiting outside the gate for the babies.
Our new squeeze chute is much gentler on the little ones and on the farmer working on them.
Hard part is coaxing them through the metal chute when they can’t see their mama.
Somebody got too close to the back-end of another.
First baby of our new cows and she’s a red angus. Small but very frisky.
