Yearlings 
Stole my daughter's camera so took a picture.  Taking the Yearling Replacement Heifers out to grass.  Done feeding them.  What a relief.  I think they feel the same way too.  Taken 4/12/2009.

The yearlings, like everything else around here, are getting fat and sassy.  It sure has been a good fall on cattle.  Taken 16 NOV 2008.

Trailing the yearlings to fresh pasture.  There was nothing wrong with where they were at but I do need to save some grass there for later in the year so it was time to move them.  taken 6/24/2008.

It's that time of year again.  Time to quit feeding and kick things out to the hills.  We took the yearlings out yesterday.  Taken 4/4/2008.

I was a little behind schedule feeding this day and the yearlings were coming looking for their feed.  Once they saw me, they came on a dead run like they were starving to death.  Taken 2/26/2008.

Some of the two year old heifers crowded around me looking for their cake.  I have started caking everything since the tubs I am using are running a little lean and the cake is a lot cheaper source of protein than the tubs.  You can see some calves stalking the fence in the background looking for their handout too.  Taken 12/18/2007.

The coming two year olds out grazing on a cold, crisp morning.  I was hoping to get the sparkle in the grass better but you can still see it some.  Taken 12/9/2007.

One of the yearling replacement heifers.  A little bit of green grass is coming in this Crested Wheat Grass and they really enjoy chasing it.  They are forced to get some old grass with it on every bite so it really makes good feed.  Taken 10/21/2007.

Some of the yearlings walking down the road towards water.  We've' had some really beautiful fall days.  the only way they would have been better is if it had been raining.  Taken 10/15/2007.

These yearlings were really curious at what we were up to at the fire scene.  They kept wandering around getting in the way.  The Hired Hand said they were wondering why they weren't invited to the barbeque.  Taken 8/6/2007.

Some yearling replacement heifers trying to figure out what I am doing.  I swear i have never had a more curious bunch of cattle before.  They rarely ever spook from a person.  They are more curious about what you are doing than anything.  I've been trying to breed them calmer and quieter and I guess it's working.  Taken 7/2/2007.

Gathered the yearlings and moved them to a different pasture yesterday.  I had two bulls with foot rot with them in the past few days so I decided it was time to pull the bulls, normally I do it the first of July so I am only a few days early, and move them so I could look them all over for foot rot.  I ended up taking 6 critters home and doctoring them for foot rot.  Hopefully the problem will be over now.  Taken 6/26/2007.
