Jimmy called to say he has a new black baby! Here he is showing off his first registered black angus calf born this year. He had two first calf heifers due on February 24th, but neither of them gave birth on their due date. Jimmy said this young mother came into the barn on her own last night, and gave birth to a 65 pound healthy female. This morning when he came out to check on the cattle, she already had the calf cleaned off and up drinking. He said she is a great young mother.

Future Farmers of Elkton
Dick and Wes tying things up
Hauling wheat straw from Doland
It got down to 23 below zero this week and Wes was more then happy to be able to find some good dry wheat straw to bed down his feeder cattle even if he had to drive out to Doland, South Dakota to find it. Wes gave me a little history lesson at the same time. As you all know, Doland is the hometown of Hubert Humphrey.

Watertown winter farm show
Brooks is about to enter the sales show ring with one of his purebred Charolais bulls. He has kind of gotten attached to this 10-month-old Charolais bull, but this will be the last time they will spend anytime together. The Charolais bulls have been selling today for anywhere from $2,000 to $4,000 a head.
