Cattle Working

We got the fall calving cattle up today to work.
 There are about 40 cows in this group.
 The pens have a major obstacle in the middle, an old chicken house.  The calves a lot of times run into it, but today a cow decided to enter.  The problem was she tried to exit through the smaller opening.
 After a major struggle she finally freed herself but left behind a lot of hair in the process.
 J had 6 heifers for me to pregnancy check.  My arm gets a little tried between cattle.
 You can see was the green grass turns into.
V and E were on Easter break still today.  V went with a friend and his family to see a Titanic museum tour.  That left E to stay and help us.  She is alway wonderful help and very pleasant too.  We vaccinated and dewormed the calves, implanted the steers with Ralgro and had one open heifer.
