Round up day

We rounded up and headed some of the calves to the sale barn.Β  A beautiful day.Β  Now prayers for a good price…it’s helpful when Family Farm/Ranchers get a “just wage” for their year’s long work.Β  We had gorgeous weather, almost too hot for January…and great helpers made the day go smooth.

Last night this crew butchered 2 roosters. I think it’s fair to say my parents lived a “homestead” life, encouraging self sustainability, and tried to teach me some of those skills. Not much of it stayed in my memory, so Grandpa is trying to pass on some of that knowledge to a younger generation.

    It looks more like spring, than a January winter North Dakota day. Hope it was a good day at the sale..

      Thanks Chuck! It was a very large sale with over 7,000+ head being sold. We hit the average market. So we will be happy with that. Lots of wind up here today, I’m thankful the sale happened before this wind storm hit (sustained 35-40 mph winds with gusts up to 75 mph), sounds like Montevideo is in a blizzard warning!
