I remember the early days when we were first starting out and desparately wanted heifers to increase our herd, but these days I am more interested in a top quality bull calf from the different polled genetics that we are trying. I must say however that I am far from disappointed in the quality of the four calves we have on the ground using Baunatal genetics. My first impressions are that they will definitely add quality to our herd and give us the diverse base to infuse other imported genetics into.
While I was out with Emerald one of our maiden heifers was pacing the boundary fence and Bohemian Rhapsody was trying the adopt a calf method of calving. I don't think it will be long before we add to our calf count.
6 down only 22 to go, not many if you say it quickly!!
