I haven't been posting because I've been so darn busy organising animals.
The girls and two of the boys have found a new and wonderful home at Bowna.
The amazing lady who purchased the cattle and her daughter came to our farm and individually selected the heifers and steers to suit their new farm on approximately 100 acres.
Selected were eight heifers and two steers.
The cattle were loaded onto the truck and Benson (my dog) whimpered until the cattle truck drove off with the moos. Benson watched the truck go up the dirt road until his friends became a blur further up the hill.
It's very noisy this morning as the mothers moo for their babies.
They started their search at 4am. It's always hard taking the calves (babies) away from their cows (mothers). But, at least this time they have gone to good homes to become breeders rather than T-bone, Scotch or Porterhouse for the table.
Sometimes I consider becomming a Vegetarian just the thought of eating your friends is such a hard thing but then I can't resist a good steak; very sorry to say...
A place to find resources, discuss and learn about beef cattle farming and all its nuances. Okay, a place to joke around about farming, I guess.
