All Calves Tagged

We finally got the last of the ear tags put into this years calves. Eleven of them had been without the bright yellow ID tags and now every calf has a way to be identified.

By watching which tagged calf is nursing, we can match up the correct mother to the correct baby. Since I don’t seem to be able to remember a number from the field to the house, I have to make sure that I carry my phone or a note pad when I go out by the herd and make notes.

This task will take several weeks to accomplish. You know the old saying, you can lead a calf to the mother but you can’t make him drink. Or something along those lines.
