Heifers go in.
Steers go by.
The calves were gathered from one place and trailed home to the corrals where we sorted them. This is the beginning of their separate lives… They both need to grow and gain weight, but for, obviously, different reasons.
We weighed the steers in groups, averaging their weight. This helps us track their nutrition and need for feed. I operated the scale in the remodeled scale house. I even brought down a little heater to make it more enjoyable! The little window helped tremendously with reading the numbers… before it was kind of a squint and get the right angle to read the engraved numbers. Now I can see out of the clean bigger window and gain light from the small window behind. It was fantastic!
Time for more questions… post them here… send a friend who’s never read this blog… ask that question you’ve meant to ask, but were too shy to! C’mon, folks!
