A Noisey Week

A Noisey Week

The weather has turned a little colder so Steve and I made the decision to wean most of the 2017 calves from their mother's. We have held off longer than normal as the weather has been so mild and we were afraid that when we put the calves into the sheds that the heat and stress would bring on pneumonia, an ailment that we are constantly looking out for when cattle are housed.

We still have the yearling and in-calf heifers out in the fields which get a feed of hay every day to supplement the poor grass at this time of year.

I am please to report also that there is a good sized covey of Golden Plover on our top pastures - a sure sign that winter is here.
