This is the new Bull Calf! He weighed 68 lbs and is 5 hrs old in this picture. Not sure yet if he is out of the Angus Bull or the Highland Bull time will tell on the hair. He does have litle horn stubs and her first Angus Calf did not get horns. Mark H.

Hi Mark, Good looking stock you got there. You fellers keep showing your cattle and calves and it makes me wish I had a few head to care for.
Right now, all we have is that old sheepdog. Kinda makes me homesick for the farm life....gfp

They sure give you something to do on the Ranch! They keep the grass down good for fire season too! Mark H.

I seem to think I see some uneatened grass just beyond the wire bhind these guys. looks like it might help Summer pasture, es[ecially so close and you're useing a hot wire?

That is last years grass all dry. Some green is poking thru but with no real rain yet it dosen't look good this year!! They will go out on open range soon. Yes we use a electric fence to keep the other range cows out of our pastures. This is the barn area so not much grass in there. I mow both sides of all our fences for fire reasons. I am tring to buy that 60 acre area on the other side of the fence to develope it into a better pasture. Mark H.

That's A-Okay.
Good show.
Your cow looks fleshier than all those I had once seen in the movies.
I think I have been duped. Nice Pic.
Thank you Mark.

Shelby spoils them with tons of good hay all year long. The pastures don't do so good around here in our 6 year long drought! Thought we would break the drought this year but no luck!! Mark H.

I know exactly what you mean. Could say we are lucky enough to have some established alfalfa fields. BUT, they need replanting and I am not touching them already rooted some 35' down or more. Going to keep what we got until we've established a couple other fields. Even the poor fields are better than nothing right now. The mud drying up, as silly as I may sound, rain will be welcomed.

As bad as it sounds the Fires make better pastures if you can keep the weed off them and mow once and a while. My better pastures do not have tall dry grass on them because I mow them and they are starting to green up now. The Cows don't like the tall rye grass and it gets out of hand. Mark H.
