Je Vais à Rio

This steer is twelve months old. He’s doing fine on all the grass we have. He’s not as stocky as I like but he’ll fill out. P1090727

We’re finding good results with steers at around 24-28 months, but that varies between animals. I’m also wondering if the yearlings we have now (born in 2013 like the guy above) are better developed than the yearlings we had a year ago.

This is old cow 78, whose real name is Peste which is unfortunate given she’s the cow that I think looks the best in the herd. Not bad for a fifteen year old. Her calf is called Jaegermeister.

This is Je Vais à Rio, who is certainly the meatiest calf we have.

He’s named after the French translation of I Go to Rio.

RIP Claude François.

[Parental note - there are some very small 70s bikinis in this clip. No way my daughters are wearing anything like this down to the centre de loisirs.]

  1. Yes, keep those daughters in order, but you do know they will hide thise 70’s retro bikinis under the pilgrim dresses you make them wear, until they are around the corner!
