    Clouds with a little sun but looking to get cloudier. Chilly, mid 40's. Supposed to get showers and looks to be here by 11 according to radar. Got to work up the last box of strawberries, DS didn't pick them up and they will go bad, if left. Won't take much to cut and freeze. Only about 4-5...

    Coffee anyone ?

    Mixed sun and clouds. Looking more like rain than not. Radar shows that it will probably be wet by the time I get out of PT..... Have PT at 10:30 then home and haul some cattle to town. DS worked some cattle yesterday afternoon, had help, and called to see if it was okay to move about 16-18...

    I know and fully understand the whole thing with colostrum and antibodies.... What so many fail to realize that there is also other reasons it is so thick. It gets the gut tract working without "running through it" so to speak. Give it the "homemade colostrum" to try to thicken up and slow...

    Coffee anyone ?

    My S.C. Light Brown Leghorns were good layers for purebred show birds, and of course were not as flighty as some due to being handled. The hens would often set too and were pretty good mothers. The best mothers I have ever dealt with were the Standard size Old English Games that my ex and my...

    Newborn calf!!

    Actually they are of the "Bambi" syndrome, where everything lives to a ripe old age in perfect harmony and politely doesn't get affected by hormones and doesn't breed other animals in the name of population control!!!! ?????

I let him get out of there when they get the last group in that are "bucket" / throwaway / treated cows, and then all I have to do is go get the numbers and all, waiting for them...

    High Desert Cowboy- How far is it up north?

    Not trying to be critical..... I just wanted to make sure that you were thinking of it.... and yeah, I do refer to things sometimes by what my mind has "called it"... Just knowing that she would not have anything to do with the milk, and it having more nutrients.... Glad that she is now eating...
