This was an excellent set of two year old bulls. I like that they are grown out and not over fed. The feeding regimen makes for excellent, sound feet and legs. The cows are wintered on forage and are expected to pull their own weight year in and year out.
This clan is a good example of the benefit of family agriculture operations. Each member plays an intrigal role in the place, working hard and getting the job done.
And to top it off, it is hard not to enjoy a delicious hamburger on a beautiful sunny day.
