I was able to get some photo’s of the girls working the young steers the other day. These calves seem to work and listen better than the pure bred Jersey calves the girls have trained in the past. The calves are Holstein crossed with Jersey and are 6 months old.
This time they did not fit into their old smaller hand-carved yoke that Fred made. The twins had to put them into the larger yoke that Fred carved.
Choosing the right calves for training is very important; these were the best in that group of calves showing some intelligence, good behavior and sound conformation.
Some miscellaneous photo’s taken during the week. Hold your mouse over the photo’s for an explanation.
Here is one of our new queens we reared out of the Minnesota Hygienic mother colony. She is now settled in with her colony and laying well.
Stay tuned, soon I will be posting photos of our new chicken house the kids built this week. I already showed Nonna and she figures it’s good enough to live in. You have an open invitation mom!
