We have spent the past several days shipping yearlings. (And tending to the kids, who have each taken a turn with the first round of colds/flu for the school year.)





We shipped heifers today. These heifers spent the summer in northern Nevada on good grass and in cooler temperatures. They weighed up nicely and our buyer was quite pleased with them.


The cowboys bring the heifers up the alley to the scale where the cattle buyer weighs them.






Then it’s time to start loading trucks. As I turned a corner on my way to the chute, I saw my husband sitting next to our son and could hear him explaining the process to our two-year old.




Love that this little boy hangs on his Dad’s every word.

Love that his Dad takes the time to sit with him, even though it is one of the busiest days of our year.
