Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch

By Rayford Pullen

The early fall rains in our neck of the woods have proven to be just what the doctor ordered regarding getting our cows in good shape before winter.
We’re hoping the first freeze holds off until the later part of November or maybe into December.

As mentioned last month, grass growth usually stops in mid to late October, but the quality will remain for a couple of weeks after the first killing freeze, which allows our cows to continue to get in better shape going into winter.

Around our place, we are still calving our first calf heifers, and hopefully we will have that job completed this month.
Our fall calving cows are right on target and the calves, just like the cows, are really benefitting from the extra milk their mommas are producing from this wonderful forage.
