Hey everybody! Sorry that this post is coming out a little late, but here it is!
Today I’m going to talk about sorting pairs. The calving pasture can get pretty full of calves, so in the heat of calving we have to sort out pairs about every three to four days.
What is sorting pairs? (Pairs- a cow and her calf make a complete pair).
Sorting pairs is basically just when we take all the cows and sort out the cow and calf pairs. We let these pairs into another field. This way, the calving pasture can just stay cleaned out, making it easier for the night calver to keep track of cows still needing to calve, and Grandpa, who tags the new calves everyday.
When we get a bunch of cows into the pen, dad will sort out the pairs from the rest of the cows.
Grandpa runs the gate (you can see it in the background), letting only the pairs out.

Jacelyn took this picture, and I thought it was really cool!
