    Been a busy couple of days. We shipped calves yesterday. They were bought on the video sale so we just had to deliver them to town. Two loads. Load of big steers went 599....sold at 620. That is within our thirty pound grace weight. Second load was the small steers and small heifers. The steers went almost 500 and the heifers went near 450. That was quite a bit lower than we sold them. Turns out that Jenn did not adjust the weight on the light calves. Sold them the same as last year. She sold the big steers quite a bit lighter because I told her that the dry year was going to kick our ass......I guess she forgot about the light ones! Today we preg tested the cows. They were 4% dry. Very good for a normal year, let alone a dry year. Had quite a few breed really early. The flipping bulls got out for an afternoon and bred about 60! Not sure what we will do with them. The main bunch bred up nice. It was a big test for us this year now that we plan on calving much later. First of May instead of March. Breeding during the hottest part of the year and during an extreme drought.......turned out well. We worked our asses off hauling water and setting up intensive grazing practices.

    Its just about killing season here. Murderous bastids! If porcupines were afraid of humans I probably would not kill so many. I dont like their attitude.

    I am actually faster than a porcupine. So if turtles or porcupines ever get a taste for human flesh....they will have to find someone slower.

    With nothing to stop the westward spread of the porcupine, the trees vanished. The combine harvester came 20 years too late to save the trees. Today a brave and heroic band of farmers battle the porcupine every fall.....trying to save the few trees we have left. It is a battle with no end, and there will be no clear winner. We can only hope to keep the ravenous porcupine in check.

    Haha! There are some trees next to the river and the irrigation ditches. The mountains in the south part of the county have some trees too.

Kinda cool I thought. This is in the north part of the county......the wetter end.

    I had a fairly productive day. Got the brakes set on the D8 cat today. Pretty easy job actually, with two people anyway. Got the parts to fix the backhoe. John Deere uses a three piece coupler under the radiator from the crank to the hyd pump. If the rubber center fails you are stuck, which is what happened. Thankfully I was at home with it. Had to pull the radiator, but it was not too bad. Also got the rebuilt front drive shaft for my 93 ford back. They put a new tube in it as the old one was bent. I could have done it myself, but I have been busy. We just got back from my folks place. It was a birthday dinner for Grandpa Richard and Richard boy. We had roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli cheese casserole with home made buns, salad and home made blue cheese dressing. Wife made a scratch chocolate cake. Everyone is full and sleepy.

    Well, I have run my sawmill idea by the wife, my folks, and the hired man. Everyone seems to think its a good idea for me to have a sawmill. So, knowing that, I am having second thoughts. No one ever thinks my ideas are good. Found a Wood Mizer 40 in Kalispell Montana for a good price. I though I was going to have to go clear to Kentucky to find one.

    Not as much as we used too now that we have moved our calving date to the middle of May. Wont be feeding nearly as much. Just working on all my old iron. My hired man is the kind of guy that would help me too, I think. I think it would be a good fit. Just need to find a logger I guess?

    I have always wanted to be a sawmill man. Ever since being around the neighbors mill as a kid. I could set it up in a sheltered spot for sure. Thanks for the tip.
