New pasture

Our cows got their first taste of the new orchard grass pasture that we planted in early May.  The majority of the new pasture will be baled later this month for their winter feed.

Grooming day for Henry

Henry, the bull, got a full grooming this morning... brushing and hair trimming.  It's so nice that he will stand still and we don't have to put him in the squeeze to get him all spiffied up.

First calf of the season

The first calf of the season arrived last weekend.  This was our new bull Fat Cow Henry's first offspring.  It's a heifer... yet to be named (but will start with a 'G').

The girls' get a new home

This year's heifers left for their new home today.  They looked great and I'm sure they will adjust quickly to their new surroundings.


It was a learning experience getting their paperwork ready to cross state lines, but it all came together smoothly. A farm call from the vet earlier this month for their Bangs vaccine and ear tags, their first trailer ride earlier this week to get a health certificate from the vet, and a visit with the brand inspector for their final paperwork.

  FYI... health certificates are good for 30 days, import permit for California (called in at the same time by the vet) is good for 15 days, and a brand inspection is good for 8 days (at least in Oregon). We could have saved a trip to the vet if we had planned the timing a little better, but it was good loading practice for the girls which made this mornings loading easy.
