Falcon, Ester's 2018 daughter with Quaker, nestled into fresh straw.
The past 10 days have been brutally cold and windy in the Pacific Northwest. Everyone loves their straw nests and the calves piled in like cord wood into their creeps. This lovely lady, Falcon, was especially thankful. Just prior to this photo she was rooting around fluffing up the straw quite vigorously. Then, with a loud alert call literally plopped straight into this position. I am pretty sure she would have burrowed into it if she could have!
Our boys at Midland Bull Test have been processed for BSEs, ultrasounds and video. We are very pleased with Lot 79s Percent IMF of 4.40 actual/4.45 adjusted. We have been focusing on raising our herd's marbling quality and he is a perfect example. Lot 82 had the largest ribeye of the group at 13.2.
