We now have a steer!

Yesterday was a true test of a farmer’s mettle. I and my friend and neighbor Bobby Hunter and my dad were able to separate our eleven day old calf and contain him while banding him. We now have a beef steer! I guess more technically, in a week or two we’ll have a beef steer, but it’s all done now except for the waiting. In about 24 months he’ll be ready to harvest.
In other news, we have an imminently pregnant cow who we’re keeping a watchful eye on and anticipating a new arrival soon!
