Weaning Time

The spring born calves are almost as large as their moms.  They have gained all their weight on milk and meadow....and a few boxes of cinnamon covered graham crackers.

The grass will run out in the next several weeks.  Snow will be here soon and it will get deep quickly.

Its time to wean the calves and find buyers for "the kids."

They are ready to go to their new homes and continue growing.

The heifers will be breeding stock for new grass fed beef producers.

The steers will be going to a "cooler environment" next September after one more lush summer of grass, grass and more grass. 

So, if you are looking for some calm cows to bring home and begin your future with productive livestock, you might want to come meet this herd.  We love visitors.
