Mothers day.....

Work is not letting up here.......cattle this weekend..........
 
Me on the bike this morning..........it was pretty chilly and windy to start with.........thanks goodness for my big lined driza-one coat...........and something I won that I thought I would not use............driza-bone motor bike mitts.............they go well on the 4wheeler.........
the paddocks are bare of feed for the cows.............
walking the cows to the yards.............
these are the young mummas..........they look much better then some of the old girls who had calves on them..............
we were preg testing to see if they are going to be Mummas ...........quite appropriate don't you think on Mothers Day........culling what we don't want........its when looks do matter........and if your not pregnant your gone.......
as we have to lower numbers to continue to feed in this drought (that doesn't exist according to the government) we have to get rid of lots just because they are the oldest..........
the day improved.............I took my jumper off once but it didn't stay off for long.........the wind kept up all day...........but it was a big clear sky day.............
hope you had a lovely mothers day............
Catch you later........Chookyblue............

  2. It's unfortunate for sure! One of the girls at work - they have been trying to sell off dairy cows and the prices are soooo low and they just don't seem to be able to sell them - even though they have good breeding ect ect! Good luck with beef prices your end

  4. Hope your mother's day was as good as it could be while you worked. Ironic that Tassie was flooding and you could have used some of there excess!?
