On Tuesday we needed to get as much ready for the Wednesday sale so we can make sure we get all the cattle in to the sale barn on time. So in order to get everything ready we have to do some sorting. In the first group, Calvin' calves, we had to sort off the bigger calves from the smaller ones.
As you can see here's where all the mud is, and as you can see I'm not in it. But really in all actuality if you really knew me you would think that kinda odd cause I love getting my feet dirty, but I got my camera in hand today so I try to stay back out of the way.
The trick with running the gate is you need to have it open enough so the cattle see the hole, but not to wide because you need to be able to shut it fast when one sneaks by the sorter's in the pen.
Both groups that we sorted were kinda a little spunky today, but we got them sorted relatively easy. Caleb had originally wanted to keep 10 replacement heifers, but once we got them sorted we wound up with 14. Oops....Oh-well we will hopefully have 14 really nice cows when it's all said and done.
