Haircuts For Everyone

After the first baths, the haircuts come next.

Quiet had been showed when she was a young heifer and knew all about haircuts and the fitting chute. Also, Black Angus as they age, don’t keep all that fuzzy, thick hair, so this animal just needs basic grooming around her face and back by her tail. When clipping is done the loose hair will be blown away with the blower before moving onto the next animal.

For the show string, haircuts will be spaced out between 2 days. It is just too much to be done all at one time.
