Weaned Fall 2017

Well, can not complain as this year we were able to wean off the calves while the weather was nice.  The calves varied in age from 150 to 200 days.

Our bull calves averaged 589 pounds off of an average 1,170 pound cow for 50.7% weaned weight.

The heifer calves averaged 543 pounds off of an average 1,230 pound cow for a 44.8% weaned weight.

Just goes to show that you can get really good weight calves off of smaller frame cows that are more economical to keep.

Some of the heifer calves have already been spoken for to go to Ontario.
