The herd plan

I sat filling out Cattle registration when I realised that ALL of the cows are related, 1 aunt and 3 sisters (1 mother is a sister to her calf - ewe!). My bull is new blood but I have decided to do a major blood line flush. I am getting a second bull (calf - 8 months), we pick him up on Saturday :)

On another note, I discovered that vets no longer make house calls unless you have a large herd :( So we decided to bite the bullet and buy an old (rusty) livestock trailer.
