The OH Ranch just weaned and sold our first calf crop. Weaning means separating the calves from the cows so that we can sell the calves at market. But first, we had to bring the herd out of the lease which is about 4,000 acres, so gathering them all up took about three days.
We had some great help from the neighbours to wean the calves. We gathered the whole herd into the weaning pen northwest of the headquarters and sorted the cows from the calves. We then separated the heifers from the steers.
