You might remember a couple weeks ago I did a blog post about steers being sold from the farm. Well the guys have the manure hauled away. They have new bedding in place and all the repairs have been made to the facilities. They were ready for a new batch of calves.
Anytime we put fresh bedding in, the steers get all excited and frisky. They are just crazy about it. You’ll notice in the pictures there is a lot of dust. That’s because of the steers running through the bedding and lime kicking up dust. They will settle soon and before long, they be comfortable in their new home.
There were 93 in this batch. They came from Kentucky. So far, everyone appears to be healthy and happy. Tomorrow they will get checked over closely and get shots to keep them healthy.
Notice a couple staring to the right in the photo. They are both looking at Ruby who is on the other side of the fence checking them out.
These guys will be here on the farm for a year or so before they are ready for market. In the mean time they’ll be well cared for and will get their breakfast at 6 am every morning when Hubby has their feed mixed.
