Fall is a busy time for farmers and ranchers – harvest, fall shipping, preg checking, taking feed inventory and the list goes on and on. But of course we try to sneak in a little fun when we can!
Always time for riding during the fall with friends!

We recently worked all the cows. This means they go through the chute, are preg checked, given a vaccination and wormed for internal and external parasites. They are then moved to corn stalk pastures, where they will graze till they are brought home before they calve the middle of March. All our cows were sent between 40-70 miles away because corn stalk pastures are hard to find in our area. We keep our heifers near home so we can give them a little extra TLC.
Giving a cow her dewormer, it goes on her back and soaks through the skin
GIving a cow her vaccination. Our chute has a neck injection access area, so its easy to give her the vaccine. We use the neck because its good quality assurance practices. The good cuts of meat arent in the neck, so it is a practical place to give an injection
