Work Day

It was time once again yesterday to work the cattle in our fall calving herd. The last 4 to calve all had them within 48 hours.
My job while J rounds them up is usually to stay out of the way.
These cattle pens have seen better days. It looks like we might have to replace them before too long, but they did manage to hold together yesterday.
J and I vaccinated and dewormed the cows first, then vaccinated, castrated and implanted the calves. I was glad when the last one came through the chute. Next week we'll have to work the load of calves that will be going out west next month.
