Now that we moved a portion of our cattle to ‘55’, we officially have two cattle herds.

The Mountain Glen Farm herd will eventually be all South Poll, South Poll cross. There are a few remaining Angus that will be transitioned off the farm.

Our first calf that was born on Thursday, March 29th, a ½ Angus, ½ South Poll heifer. She is so cute!
The ‘55’ farm herd currently is all Angus, Angus cross cows. This spring’s calves will be 50% South Poll. The cattle seemed to have acclimated well to their new home since their move two days ago.
Note: I did see a dentist about my two front teeth and am happy to report that both teeth seem fine at the moment. What I thought was a crack across one tooth was only a portion of the enamel breaking off. Because the teeth were hit straight across and not in an upward motion, the dentist thinks that there is no nerve damage. I was LUCKY!!!!
Where are the sheep? They have been given a separate pasture while waiting for the lambs to arrive. We were uncertain what a huge 1200 pound cow would do to a 10 pound lamb, so we thought we better be safe and separate the flerd into herd and flock during the ‘baby’ season.
Spring continues to display a colorful and fragrant-filled beauty. I am absorbing every second.
