The calves who still need ear tags made the wanted poster. All commercial calves and most are part of the "creek herd."
The creek herd are as hardy as they come; they live on our bottom ground and rarely come close to people or the main herd.
They are the reason we got our first Australian Shepherd. Eventually, Tessa's task is to herd these into the corral any time we want.....so they all get their waiting tag numbers and health checks faster.
Lorin and I have been around agriculture our whole lives. We're happy to be part of the family farm.
