It’s cloudy & cool early this Monday morning & hopefully we get some much needed rain. It’s always a tough situation that something so vital & important like rain & you absolutely have no control over. The master switch on rain sure has been in the “off” position for some time. It’s State Fair week. I love fair & also love this time of year! Huge congratulations to Gary Brock from Dunlap who will be inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame during the fair. Gary was my kids 4-H leader & his dad Bob was mine. Couldn’t be happier for my friend & this outstanding honor!!

 

As we are approaching the time most of us think about processing out calves, we continue to push the Green Tag Program. In addition, if possible weaning calves 60+ days. Always consult with your vets about what is best for your heard health program.
