The 2nd weekend in July every year!

I am looking forward to 9 hours round trip

of hand piecing hexagons!

My trusty train case has everything I need...

This is something to get excited about!

We are at the auction yard in Madras:

There are bulls everywhere!

We brought 4 bulls home...

Lots of hexagons were pieced today!

It was a perfect day all the way around.

I captured video of our day...see it below:

You need to write a book!! Oh wait! You write your blog! Thanks for allowing us to travel with you today! Another fun day and I didn't have to leave my chair!

Those guys are big! And yet they seem so easy to handle. I would be a bundle of nerves around them!

Four handsome young men added to your herd!! Nice to get some new blood into your family! How often do you buy new bulls, how long do you keep the bulls that cover your cows and do you ever use your bulls that are born on your farm to cover your cows or is inbreeding an issue with that? Love how you are taking us along for all of the fun you have on the farm!! OK, fun for us because we don't have to do any of the work!!!

Yes, the bulls are very easy going and gentle....most are if they have spent any time around people.

We buy new bulls every 2 or 3 years. The bulls go in with the mother cows in May and we take them out in August. No, we don't raise bulls. All of our bull calves are banded at birth and are steers.
