Still working heifers

We spent most of the morning once again working a group of heifers, this time the 5-11 month olds that were in the pasture next to my house. Once we got them to the farm we gave all of them a dose of wormer and sorted them by age and size. The older, bigger group was put in a pasture with other yearlings while the twelve youngest were sent back to my house.

First thing this afternoon, we'll have a man from Select Sires come and evaluate our first-lactation cows for the mating program. He will recommend a couple of AI-available bulls for each cow in an effort to improve our herd's overall health and production through genetics.
