Start of Calving Season and Sorting Pairs

img_0493

Hey everybody!  Calving season has started into full swing.  We have a night calver working nights now.  Colton goes from 6:00 pm until 8:30, and than the night calver takes on from there, until 6:00 a.m.  Dad and Grandpa watch the cows throughout the day.

When calves are born, that means taking them out of the calving pasture to make more room for cows coming in, that still need to calve.  We call it sorting pairs.  We just push the cows into a pen and sort out the pairs from there.  Then, the pairs will go to a new field.

It is so much fun to see all the new little calves around!
