Rounding Up and Sorting

Today we rounded up our weaned calves to sort out the replacement heifers and hold back some of the smaller steers and heifers.  There were also a few that we needed to treat for a respiratory bug that is going through the group we moved in. 
 It seemed to go pretty smoothly to start with.
 And the weather was cooperating, blue skies and somewhat mild temperatures.
 There was only one problem.  J couldn't find one of the ones he knew needed to be treated.
 So another trip out to the field yielded 2 more.
 We marked their faces so it will be easier for J to keep a check on them when he's feeding.
Then the heifers got turned out to be on pasture and hay for the winter while the steers and cull heifers will get started on grain in preparation for their trip out west.

Looks like a lovely day to work cows. Those crayon marks sure help a lot!
Great cattle prices to sell culls! :)
