Don came over at the beginning of the week and we killed the last two whethers. He helped me tag all the babies and we let them back in with the main herd and turned all the jug momma and babies into the baby area after they got tags. Only the oldest boy was ready to be banded at 1 month old and I still had to fish around to make sure I had both testicles. I think two months old is a better age for finding testicles. Since then we have had two more ewes give birth. We have had three still born babies all from mothers having multiple offspring.
Gannon and I had to go out and fix gate and fencing behind the grain bins. The cows were pushing over the long equipment gate and going out to eat. We found them about two miles from the house headed up the gravel road to Rocky Ridge. We anchored the ends, installed braces and cross pieces and then ended up restapling and tightening fence. We restapled all the way to the corner post. I will need to tighten the barb wire strands in the spring time. But for now, the cows can no longer get out of the pasture.
