From the Farm Friday : n u m b e r 9

This will be a short cattle edition of From the Farm Friday

black angus calf

180 babies that were born in 2015 {January - March} were weaned from their mamas on Wednesday. The moms get left in the pasture and all the babies are brought home. It was pretty loud around the farm for a few days as they are all crying trying to find their moms.

The moms in the pasture are pregnant again {they get bred in May} and will have another calf in January - March. The cows get left to eat the corn stalks in the fields that were just combined; when they clean the field up {no more stalks left to eat} or there gets to be too much snow we will bring them home as well.

So as harvest comes to an end the cattle side of our farm starts to pick up again!!

Farm ladies let me know what has been happening around your place … are you done with corn? Do you have cattle?
