The last four years has been very busy with the Brangus embryo transplant programs, animal husbandry management, pasture development, equipment selection and upgrades, meet and greet other stud producers, updating of property assets including fences, slashing, maintaining sheds, installing grain storage along with the numerous other tasks associated with running a Brangus stud.
A few of the upcoming highlights are listed below:
We had our last lot of calves drop at the end of 2016 with some outstanding Brangus animals among them. As well we have some exciting new Brangus embryos for the next program!
We are looking forward to flushing our own Brangus embryos in 2017. This will be a first for us, using our own Brangus stock breed on the property. AS well, we have started our own natural Brangus breeding program using Brangus stock breed on the property.
We have had good rain over the past few months. There are good stands of native grass and cultivated pasture. We have plenty of hay in the shed. With so much standing grass going into winter, we are preparing for a possible bad fire season. So we are cutting fire breaks and refreshing our bush fire plan.
