That is what our summer has been. To get a little back story, we breed our heifers with a bull. When the heifers get to be breeding age, they are moved to a pasture with a bull in it.
By that time we were all ready 9-10 months behind schedule. So we went to work and AI bred a bunch of the heifers, and then put 3 bulls to work trying to catch up. The tidal wave hit around the end of June and is just starting to wane.
In July we had 101 calvings! So, here are a few pictures of calvings from this summer!
We were a little worried about having this many overweight heifers calving in the heat of the summer but luckily so far, thanks to a good herds-person, good nutritionist, hard work by those taking care of the animals, and good feed we have avoided major problems.
