It sure looks like a winter wonderland outside my windows today! We've had over a foot of snow fall since the beginning of the weekend, erasing most of the signs of spring around the farm. Last Monday was a different story, though! The pasture...

SPRING!!! My favorite season. A little late this year but hopeful. A time of lush grass and baby calves. They are so cute.


Vampires and Bottle Calves

Blog: At Home in Nature   -   Monday December 05, 2011   -   By Mary

Are there vampires?  Some people will say so, especially after seeing some movies.  We have a vampire kept here at the farm.  We keep him locked away from the other animals for their safety.  We urge caution when dealing with him: eat a...

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Wednesday May 18, 2011   -   By Teresa

This is a great time of year at Bloom Where You're Planted Farm.  Rain has been plentiful, the grass and trees look lush and healthy, and the iris and peonies are starting to bloom.  In the next week or so we'll start planting some of our...

The sun is out and its BEAUTIFUL this morning. After feeding all the critters at the home place I loaded up Wallace, Grace, and the ATV and went out to check cows. Good thing I didn't try to drive the truck up the hill to the leases or I would have had a mess....

Big Daddy

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Wednesday October 20, 2010   -   By Cowmomma

This year's calving season is running later than usual.  Most of the time, all our babies have arrived before the leaves start to turn.  We bred back more heifers this year though, which makes for a less predictable calving schedule as the young...

Where Does Time Go?

Blog: Star of Texas Natural Beef   -   Thursday May 06, 2010   -   By Gary

Boy oh Boy.  Where does the time go?  Seems like yesterday we had snow  on the ground and now it is May and 90 degrees!  Mom always said the older you  get the faster time goes.  She sure was right.  We have started the first...

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Thursday April 22, 2010   -   By Chris

Spring continues its forward progession.  New calves have been introduced to the growing "herd" out in the pastures... A new lamb, named Vera, is introduced to some of the other sheep in the flock... A little girl...

Spring is finally here!

Blog: Kiss My Grass Farm   -   Saturday April 17, 2010   -   By Dot and Brian

 Spring is here! After what has been a hard winter at our place it is a relief to see the grass greening up and hear the peepers calling. Spring has brought quite a few new additions to the farm. We have four 1/2 Dexter calves (one set of twins)...

It's Finally Spring!

Blog: Star of Texas Natural Beef   -   Wednesday March 31, 2010   -   By Gary

Well it finally feels like spring.  After the unusual winter weather and the snow we are all glad to see some sun and warmth.  The cows have been calving like crazy.  We had 5 in one day.  It is fun to go out and watch the calves...

Noisy Day and Nights

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Saturday February 13, 2010   -   By Cowmomma

All the calves have been rounded up and moved into the weaning enclosure so the days and nights have been noisy here at the ranch.  We apologize to the neighbors!  The five little ones in the back are still sharing fence-line contact with their...

Great Bulls, Even better cows!

Blog: Ebersole Cattle Company   -   Wednesday December 16, 2009   -   By ShanenEbersole

Wow! What a day! Yesterday, we pregnancy checked our cows.  What this means is that we worked them through the chute and our veterinarian checked if they were pregnant, and thier estimated due date. WELL, the news was great!  We checked 65 of...

Show Time!

It's summer Show Time! We always have a couple of really great heifers to show at some shows through the summer. Here is my oldest little Cowgirl with her heifer "Freedom".  This picture was taken at her very first show a couple of...

Last Calf Has Arrived

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Friday July 17, 2009   -   By Cowmomma

Whew!  We just had the last calf of the season arrive on Saturday.  We had eight this year and that is a big jump from two.  That bumps our herd to twenty-three head of cattle.  We had three bulls and five heifers.  All are healthy and...


Blog: MM Livestock Co   -   Monday June 15, 2009   -   By Megan

We have 3 new Belted Galloway calves since my last post. A bull calf and 2 heifers. My "friend" calls them cookie cows because they are black on both ends and white in the middle. So in honor of him we named the bull calf Billy. The kids are having fun with...

Craving Calves

Blog: Cowmomma's Cupboard   -   Saturday February 28, 2009   -   By Cowmomma

Though it was still below zero last night, today is it a screaming sunny day and all the cows and bulls are less interested in eating today, than they are in sun bathing.  There is a frenzy of grooming going on out in the pasture.  I helped by...

Is spring coming?

Blog: Cottonwood Farm   -   Wednesday February 04, 2009   -   By Kathy & Lynn

Is Spring on the way?  We finally got an egg today; the chickens started laying about a week ago, but we think the barn cat is beating us to them.  All we've found is a crushed shell!  But tonight, one whole entire safe egg!  A clue that...

Cow/Calf Update

Blog: Ebersole Cattle Company   -   Friday November 28, 2008   -   By ShanenEbersole

Well, life on the ranch has started to settle down again.  The pairs are still locked in the pens, but there are fewer every day.  We have begun to pair out the fall calvers to the pasture again.  You see, because of the heavy rains and...
