Mert took to the podium (or became the podium) at our most recent Burger Night when state representative Sam Young climbed on board to deliver his most recent 30sec. campaign speech.
The next Burger Night is 9/8 5-8 on the Cemetery rd. in Craftsbury. Come join us! (and we promise not to talk politics over dinner)
Thanks to everyone who came out for our first Burger Night! The weather held off and a good time was had by all. A BIG THANKS to Ned and Don for keeping the music going. Keep checking back for our next Burger Night date!
Three more babies later everyone is out to pasture and enjoying the green grass of summer. We keep our kids cool by allowing the natural shelter of trees in every pasture. Daily doses of all-natural fly spray keeps down the biting flies. Walk past any of our pastures and see for yourself what happy, relaxed and comfortable, looks like for a cow.
Another baby! 'Fawn' out of Mom, 'Baby.' A complete look-alike to her mom, Fawn is enjoying her new life. We are happy to have our first F1 heifer come out so pretty!
We welcomed our first Wagyu cross on March 31st. Skipper was born in the morning before we were in the barn. Mom, 'Lady,' had no problem calving. Calving ease is a marketed trait of the breed and it showed here. Mom and baby were up and rolling showing no signs that the birth had even occurred. This little man was jumping around, head-butting our daughter and loving his brand new life (hence his name.) He also appears to be polled, born without horns. This is a plus to breeding to our Herefords as they are all naturally polled and the gene seems to be dominate. Skipper was born with his mother's white face, a surprise as we had assumed he would take on the all black coloring of his Wagyu daddy. He continues to be spunky and friendly and a real treat to enjoy in the barn.
