Summer Good for both Cows and Calves

#22 with three month old heifer #68 are a demonstration of what happens when you combine good pasture, management, and genetics.  This calf is twice the weight I would have seen in my calf crop 30 years ago.  A year from now this calf will breed at close to 1000 pounds.

If I went by the books I have more cows per acre than should be sustainable but in most places the grass is still outgrowing the cows.  In places it is going to seed.
