Greener Pastures

This time of year is always a busy one, trying to get the crops planted, sprayed and still dealing with cows. With the return and regrowth of the pasture grasses the cows are ready to be turned out to for the remainder of the summer months. We sorted and moved two loads of female cows out to his rented pasture near Panama on May 21st.

They’ll be on the summer pasture for five months until they go to cornstalks. This group are all fall-calving cows and will have their babies in September. 



Jerry is applying pour-on to the cows to keep the flies and parasites to a minimum 

In other news–WE BOUGHT A BRAND! Jerry was searching craigslist and found a brand with his initials for sale. What a coincidence, we had to buy it. Once we got the brand paperwork filed I ordered the branding iron. The next time we work calves at our place we will be putting it to use.
