Calves, Tires, And Company

Yesterday was action packed from start to finish. 
 We headed to J.J.'s to wean the fall calves and met the mechanic there already changing the tractor tires.
 J has been using his dad's tractor at this farm and it was time for a new set of front tires before there was a blow out.   The mechanic made quick work of it and was done in 10 minutes.
 I can't help but think of something I heard one time about Loretta Lynn in her song Coal Miner's Daughter.  She is the only person that could rhyme tired and hard.  I'm pretty sure I could add J to that list.
 Next up was gathering the cattle which is always easy because of J's pre work the day before, already having them in a smaller lot and all the coral panels in place.
Then we just had to sort out the cows,
  pick out a few replacement heifers,
then load everyone else on the trailer for a trip to the house.  
Three trips later they were all here. 
Then J squirted them with some dewormer and they are ready to turn out on a bigger boundary this evening.
No pictures, but then we had a visit from the feedlot operator from Circle 5 in Nebraska.  He came around 1 and talked cattle with J until another local cattle produce showed up at 3 and the conversations started over again.  Then V and M came at 5, our cattle friends Robbie and Lynn showed up at 6 and then their son got here after 8.  Lots of cattle and crop talk over hamburgers and potato salad.  Busy, busy day.

Sounds like you got a full day of work in before all the cattle talk. I'm sure J enjoyed it all.
