Full fledged cattleman

Dec 10, 2022 | 17:59 1 I bought a cheap steer today. His name is Sir Loin.

They’re a big beast when one is used to sheep’s!

Should have meat in a month or two.

It’s not like I can get mor tied down, so. Reply With Quote

    Watch out for CALPC.

    Cows are like potatoes chips.

    You can never have just one! Reply With Quote

    See, I’m married. This was a HUGE STEP. We shall see.

    But goodness I like animals. At the very least I’m thinking if this guy works out I’ll get a weaned calf and graze him with the sheep, feed him up in fall.

    I can’t stop smiling right now. Reply With Quote

    Married a young lady that grew up on a farm with cattle and she never wanted any cows in her future so no cattle. Settled on leaf cutter bees as a way to diversify and that has worked out good as she is able to help in all aspects plus you can still get away in the winter if you want.
    My dear old Uncle was still making hay bales this summer but is on his last days now!

    When they replied "steak?" She said with a smile ,"yup steak, that was his name,"
    That still finds its way into meeting conversations years later.
