It is always rewarding to see a calf you have kept as a bull, growing out so nicely. Grand Design is looking absolutely stunning at the moment, as is his dam Rawlings Ellie Mae. She has the most stunning udder in a first calving heifer and hopefully that will be passed on to this young fellas daughters. The pictures below show what I mean!! And he could be homozygous polled and he is red factoring, I think he might have to go over some of the KP girls and we should get some stunning progeny.
We are also waiting for a few new calves to arrive in the month of December, Cue-tee is ready to pop at any moment and she either has a very long legged calf or a whole tribe of them in her huge belly. Also to calve is KP Freedom, KP Angelica and KP Billi Vanilli who are all due on Christmas Day, so we will be staying home this year!!
I am looking forward to using this Blog to keep everyone up to date with the happenings at our farm.
