Weaning One of the Groups of Purebred Calves

This last week, Dad and I headed down to our South pastures. 150 pair were on 5 1/2 quarters of dry pasture. We ran the whole group into a previously set up corral, sorted the cows off and then loaded two loaves of calves to bring home. The cows will remain there until first snow, hopefully that will be late November. The bull calves will go onto a silage ration and heifer calves will go back on home pasture within a few days.

Here is a bit of an overview of the evenings job.
