“Bottle Baby” – Hello, Calving Season!

Cattle don’t usually give birth to twins, and we’ve found that it is best to leave just one calf with its momma, and take the other one away. This one will be bottle fed until a new mother can be found for him. He’s always very insistent and you have to be careful! He willContinue reading ““Bottle Baby” – Hello, Calving Season!”

Haying in the Green River Valley

Roaring of motors in August is a common sound in the hay fields of the Green River Valley. Tractors moving in the hay fields around the hay stack are like ants busy at work around their ant hill. Green grass turning different shades of green as the hay is cut, baled and stacked is aContinue reading “Haying in the Green River Valley”

Trailing to the Mountains

The sun starts to lighten the skyline above the Wind River Mountains while the song birds can be heard singing and the warm and cool air currents can be felt as the cowboys ride across the sagebrush, BLM allotment to gather the cattle and start them marching north to summer pasture.  This is the beginningContinue reading “Trailing to the Mountains”

The Pleasures of Calving

The little calves always make calving fun and seem worthwhile no matter how tired you are or how disastrous the situation seems. When four heifers aborted in a week almost two months before calving time, it appeared to be a disaster. When the second calf was aborted, Vern came out and did an autopsy.  VernContinue reading “The Pleasures of Calving”
