All cattle are now housed, except for 13 weanling heifers. They too should be housed, but until I get rid of a batch of cull cows, I haven’t enough room in the shed for them.

The cows will be sold live through the mart this week. I have been feeding them for about six weeks and while they have a covering of flesh, they’re not yet ready for killing and will require further feeding. At this point, they are just surplus to my requirements.
