Bringing in some of the last cows to sort.  If someone told me it would only take 2 days to sex all of the cattle I would have called them crazy, but that's what happened.  Either the cattle are getting more used to being worked this way or the hired hand is a hell of a hand.  I keep teasing him that he must be a hell of a hand since everything is going so smoothly.  Hopefully the trend continues.  Taken 9/25/2006.

The cattle contentedly grazing on the dry, brown grass.  Bitch as I will about it the dry, brown grass has a lot of punch to it and the calves are really growing well on it.  Less than a month to shipping.  Let them put on the pounds.  Taken 8/14/2006.
