Weaning…. May 2015

Weaning…. May 2015

We completed our weaning over May and have been really happy with the calves and their weights….and  the  large number of sturdy- framed  polled calves.

It is always such an enjoyable time especially when the weaners all walk out quietly, the mothers settle happily back into their paddocks and extra time is given to the stud stock back in the home yards .

These future stud sires are assessed more carefully at home for temperament before they too are walked out to their new paddocks.

It has been a dry month as far as rain goes with nothing recorded…some really hot days along with a few cold ones plus  a big frost early in May!….more like Summer on the whole however !

A few snaps from the weaning below

 Stud Brahmans coming in over Boogalgopal Creek….in our stud paddocks we usually run a Charolais and a Brahman sire so that the parentage of the calves can be recorded with accuracy
