First calf Sunday morning, the two more yesterday. I guess they won't stop now. Hope everyone is having a great spring. Winter is over.

Hope your correct on winters over. However, there's still plenty of time for winter to shout out a a couple more good blasts, just not the extreme cold. Remember in 83 or 84, winter dumped 9 inches of snow on May 9th. That was in Omaha. Good luck on the calving.

I saw killdeers today. Maybe they know something we don't.

It's been a whirlwind. about 40 calves on the ground and going well. I have 21 first calf heifers shut up that will start anytime. I moved the bulls yesterday. It was a long day. I'm getting too old for this.

I hope your luck holds out on the calves Howard! It actually rained and got the sidewalk wet today, second time since October last year. :shock: Larry Tx
