Bred cows

Hi,  I'm in the Illinois Valley just a few miles over the border.  Sorry, I do not have any bred cows (for sale) at this time.  I will be putting my bull in with the herd at the end of this month.  Half the pasture herd was aborted but I have to keep them isolated for another 30 days

I have some lovely little heifers that are being halter trained.  They are open but are old enough for breeding.

Aborting the cows

The neighbor's three bulls tore through 3 new fences and spent the night with my cows.  The vet will be here next Saturday to abort the herd.  I am beyond pissed.  Had I been here I would have shot all three of them.

Finish work

My latest project is the farm orchard.  A gazzilion fruit trees arrived from One green world and raintree nursery.   I will not be here to see them planted but my gang here has some in already and holes dug for more.

I have been living away from the farm for most of the last 2 years.  It is hard to write about your life there  when you are not living there.  As most old rundown country places are the farm is a MONEY PIT.  We are trying to get it livable and workable for humans (us) and livestock.  It is coming along nicely.  I will post some pictures soon

I love my sheep!
