Finally, I can write in my calendar on May 31, 2014: “Penny bred?” If she does not come back in heat by June 21, then she is bred and due to calf again on or about March 9, 2015.
If she did not take this time around, I am sure there will be no misinterpreting the signs. In the next few months, we will be investing in five or six cattle panels and constructing a solid holding pen for said bull while I am milking. No more of the rodeo we’ve gone through the past week or so.
Off to work on math. Got some kale chips roasting in the oven.
Here is the gallery of images I took yesterday at the Downtown Hickory Farmers’ Market.
Until later …
