Working Cattle

We worked the fall calving cow herd today. 
Before we start at this farm J has to block a few weak spots with some panels.
We sorted out the cows to work first.  They got a 10 way vaccine and were dewormed.
One cow has a horn that grows too curved and presses on her skull so we have to saw it back periodically. 
Next, the heifer calves were sorted.  They only needed a 7-way vaccine.  The bull calves were castrated, implanted and vaccinated.
The work went smoothly only it wasn't a good day to have forgotten my rubber boots.
