It's that time of the year...
time to wean the calves.
After the cows and calves have been sorted...
We haul the calves to this barn.
The calves will stay here for 10 days
until they are weaned.
We have 10 barns....this is my favorite...
It is 90 years old.
The calves are eating a round bale of hay
we made last summer.
The calves are 6 to 8 months old
and weigh 500 to 600 lbs.
These are a few heifer calves
we plan to keep as replacement cows.
Number 22 is Ruby Jean
Number 36 is Shasta,
she looks like a little polar bear!
Remember these little twins?
Number 3 and Number 4
Born in February of this year...
Here are the twins now:
They were separated at birth...
we had another cow who lost her calf,
we put one of the twins on her.
The twins had plenty of milk
and grew really well!
