Spent this morning working cows at uncle Johan and aunt Janes.
One of my favorite things to do by the way.
Getting them vaccinated!
Protected from flys-pour on and fly tags
Number tags (if needed)
Castrated weaned males with burdizzo
Here around Lively H we normally pick one week to do all the cows and it has to be a rainy week because if it's dry everyone is in the fields...
Question: Have you ever ran in the mud>?
Yeah doesn't work out well when sorting or pushing cattle in pen towards chute but no boots were lost today nor anyone face planted.. and even better no cows were missed...
(although some TRIED to escape)
On to more tomorrow !
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
