4 February

Took a 2yr heifer with bull calf at foot and a yearling heifer to Gore Show to support President wh has always supported West Otago Show.  Very succesful outing with 2yr heifer winning Supreme Angus

Today the silage was chopped for the yearling and R2 heifer pits.  Will use the heifers and two year olds to clean up the fence lines then shut the paddocks up again for another cut of silage the beginning of March.

   
December AI programme going well - using Esselmont Lotto, R B Tour of DutyPA Ranch House, Mohnen South Dakota and Bushs Easy Decision

Bulk mated the yearling heifers today with Waitawheta K75, and the maxed aged cows  to Waitangi K216 and Waitangi K244
