Weaning Greasy


© Terri Blanke


It’s been a long week with early mornings and warm days gathering another bunch of cows and calves in Greasy. We hauled the last of the calves down the hill this morning to the corrals to wean. From the goosenecks, we unload them onto our scales to weigh, then apply fly spray to not only make the process a little more pleasant for the calves, but to reduce the risk of a pink eye.

The calves have done well but the market is weak and weakening with concerns about this year’s corn crop.

    Based on just one picture they look great, as usual. Interesting that some are so slick haired and some have so much left. Any idea which bulls are producing what?
