#11 was last to calve last year and is even later this year. She had another bull- this time black and must have been born yesterday 7/22/14 because he wasn't going to stand still to be tagged. He will be #46 first time he goes through the squeeze chute. She picked the same spot as last year also. According to Grandaughter Remedy the calf's name will be "Boy".
I decided to do the first thirty days of breeding with a yearling cross. Hopefully he will get the heifers. The big bull calves were far too big for heifers this year. #16 was the first I noticed bred on the 10th.
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com
