I went over and helped a neighbor pair off his heifer calves and bring them in and wean them.. there were 4 of us horseback.. worked good and was fun.
I took Gabe and Gus and we went North pretty early Saturday morning to help trail some cattle home for neighbors. I need to go back on Tuesday and help them wean or something…
We rebuilt two sides the little lot/pasture to the eat here.. we call it the Hog pasture.. evidently at some point Grampa or Dad ran hogs in it.. I tore the old fence down 40 years ago and got ride of the woven wire fence and reused the barbed wire and added new post and wire where needed. I guess it’s time to do it again. We used to keep our weaned calves in it and just use it for about anything, any more.. looks better and should hold cattle in better now, too. Still need to do some work on 2 sides, replace wire on one and just remove and reset existing posts on the other.. that wire is in pretty good shape.. can’t afford to plumb rebuild all this stuff, tho’ it would be good if we could.
Supposed to have some snow and wind coming in this afternoon.. kind of drizzly this morning.. I have a neighbor shipping on Monday I need to help, so hope it is done by then..
One thought on “Cow work”
You really know how to work hard and have fun. Thanks for the update from South Dakota. I’ll be working on the group email I promise tomorrow regarding the family reunion late June 20 20 right? I am sorry that I have not been on top of my game. Give Cindy and those kids a real big hug from me
