For our replacement heifers we do the same thing only they stay in until we bring the cows home from grass. This year we are hoping that will be in November as we had a good year for grass. The replacements don't need to be on feed before that. We also find that we have less sickness with them out on grass instead of in dusty pens.
This fall also meant a different sort of weaning for Rob.....our daughter Stacy was married a week ago and I think this picture says it all.
She has a wonderful husband in Dan and we are excited to see what the future holds for them. She may be married but I think she will always be daddy's little girl, just like her sister Crystal.
