In August and into September, we wean our calves. We gather the cows and calves out of the pasture and take them to a corral where we separate the cows from the calves. Then the calves are loaded onto trucks and taken to our feedlot in Baker.
This was the first bunch we weaned, back in August. The cowboys have since weaned 4 other herds. The mountain herd is the only one left to take care of.
