Club calf mommas
« on: February 10, 2012, 12:25:29 AM »
So after a bit of haranguing, here are some pics from my trip that I took at a club calf operation in Colorado. I will leave it to the owner of these cows (they're on SP) if and when they wish to identify them (or you can send me the details if you like  :)).

It was really interesting to get to see an operation like this, as we have nothing like this Down Under.

Please excuse the quality of the photos, they're all unedited and the light in some of them is a bit ordinary.

Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Group 2
8874 Habenero 10 year old
8881 Meyer 734 X 550
8889 Meyer 734 X Draftpick heifer She didnt have the best show career but I will bet she is a great producer.
8890 Witch Doctor X Meyer 734 bred to Diamond Captain Mark hoping for a heifer.
8891 Meyer 734 X Angus donor. We have several different matings on her in the tank.
The last 3 were taking at our hay farm. The mountain pasture only holds 30 for the well to keep up, so the young and very old and some others cant go.
