Summer is here!

Summer is here!  All of the cows have long since had their calves and have now gone out to pasture.  Calving season was very busy but pretty routine here at Dreamy 280.  The whole family was kept busy with some long days and nights in keeping up with the calving schedule.  All-in-all calving went well and there are 45 new babies on the ground.  This year produced quite a few Shorthorn and Angus embryo calves.  We are very pleased with this year’s calf crop.  We have a good line-up of calves out of our herd sire, Dreamy 280 Rito 1I2.  Feel free to stop by the farm anytime for a pasture walk. 

Spring planting is over and the first crop of hay came off the fields last week.  Patrick and Hope are in full tilt gearing up for their show season.  Their days begin at 5:00 a.m.  so they can do their morning chores and rinse and dry their show calves before Hope heads off to school and Patrick goes to work.  Each year as show season approaches I wonder if they will tackle their new show calves with the same dedication and persistance as the prior year.  Once again they are hard at it.  If they didn’t even go to a cattle show this year I couldn’t be prouder of both of them for all of the time and energy they spend on their calves. 

Best of luck to all of you cattle people at the upcoming shows-we’ll see you there!  Enjoy the beautiful weather and stop by the farm for a visit when you have some spare time.
