The weather has been pretty crazy here. Even for Wyoming. Had an early warm spell in March, which thankfully got rid of some of our snow pack down low at the 8500' level. Still an awful lot of snow up in the high country, but that bodes well for a good irrigating season.
The cows are in pretty good shape. Which they had ought to be considering the amount of hay they ate most of the winter and the amount of supplement I put into them this year.
My hopes are that the newer mineral program I used will get my calving season tightened up a smidge. I'm pretty sure it's helped with keeping calves healthier this spring. Noticeably better shot of colostrum sticking to the calves hind end seems like.
Started calving around the 20th of March on the cows, only 7 left. Had fairly good luck considering the snow and cold. Only noticed a few cropped ears and one tail while branding the early calves the other day. Two of them were on a cold snap earlier this month.
Grass ought to be coming on if it quits snowing and warms up. Way, way behind as usual with spring work. Lots of meadows to drag, ditches to clean, and manure to spread.
That's about it from here on my little ranch.
