Two Stage Weaning

Once again, we weaned our first group of calves using the Quiet Wean.  19 were put in on Wednesday, July 24th and 19 were removed on Monday, July 28th.  Cows hardly made a sound in the first 24 hours since the calves were removed from their mothers.  A few calves make some noise when they see people around, but nobody is trying to jump the fence or climb the walls.

A second group had Quiet Weans put in on Monday as well and will likely get pulled out on Saturday.


Thursday, July 24, 2014

Weaning Is Underway

We started weaning sale calves this week.  All calves have also been vaccinated in preparation for our September 13th (rain date September 14th).
