|Waiting...for the "Cow Girls" to calve. EllieMae, on the right, should be first...any day now!|
I thought it was going to be Annabelle who would calve first, but EllieMae looks much more ready.
I mentioned the "Cowculator" a couple of posts back...and it's a spreadsheet that I got from Eastern Oregon Agriculture Research Center. I just use the simple part of it...plugged in the average breeding date and it gives me the average calving date, which came up as April 10. But, with a herd of just 2, that gives us a wide range of before or after dates too.
|Watching...things just seem to look better to Bella Jo from the top of the dog houses!|
I hope she's watchin' for coyotes.
