Week of March 2-9, 2014 ~
Yeah its 25 degrees outside finally and it looks like it is going to stay above zero
the rest of the week. That will be great since we have a few things on our chore
list this week.
Starting out with bangs vaccinating heifers tomorrow, Tuesday.
Head to Pierre on Wednesday for Beef Industry Council Meeting and pickup some supplies
while in town.
Meet with conservationist about planting on Thursday.
Pick up freeze branding supplies (dry ice and alcohol) on Friday.
Freeze brand replacement heifers on Saturday.
Rest of Sunday, hopefully!! Oh, no can’t do that since I will be preparing for CattleWomen’s
meeting and Beef Day at Capitol on Monday.
Doesn’t sound like I have to much time for the family but luckily we work together
on the ranch. The boys enjoy helping out and seems to find laughter and fun in all
the chores we have to do. Here is my middle-man learning his numbers with the freeze
brand irons! Hope the temperature stays above 0!!
Did you know...More than 97% of beef farms in the United States are family owned. South Dakota has over 15,000 Beef producers. South Dakota has 3.7 million beef cattle. That is approximately, 4.5 animals for every citizen in SD.
