Welcome to Grazing Days ladies!

 Finally, after a few weeks of waiting for the weather to clear and the ground to dry so that we could get a truck into the field, 30 one year old heifers (a young female bovine that has not yet had a calf) arrived in the Grazing Days pastures on Wednesday, 26 May 2011.

At 9:30 am, the truck delivering the first group of 15 heifers pulled into the field and dropped off 2 red angus, 12 black angus, and 1 black angus with white patches on its face. Later, at 4:00 pm the second group of 4 red angus and 11 black angus arrived. It sure is easier to get the cattle off the truck than it is to get them on one!

The average weight of each cattle when they arrived was about 810 lbs. We know that the average calf weighs about 55lbs when they are born and they gain about 2 lbs a day until they are full grown. From this we can calculate the approximate birthdate of these heifers was approximately the 13th of May in 2010…

On behalf of all of us, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all 30 of you to Grazing Days. Oh yeah, and happy belated birthday!
