Last week we ran the cows through the chute. We gave them a pre-calving shot and poured them. The shot helps to build antibodies that protects neonatal calves against scours. The pour-on is used to eliminate and protect the cattle against lice and worms.
We had lots of great help! Cousin T’s daughter, “Ash Tree”, was home from college. J’s Dad likes to work in the back bringing the cattle up the alley.
As you can see, we had a beautiful day to work cattle. Muddy, but warm!
J was the shot giver and Cousin T poured the cattle. Neighbor RC helped too! We are very lucky to have great a great cattle working crew.
While we had the cattle in the chute, J re-tagged those that lost their ear tags. It’s important to be able to identify all the cows.
After all the cows get worked, back to the winter pasture they go. We will bring them home to start calving in April.
