It has been a busy couple of weeks around the Burch Farm. Brayson got to show for the first time at the National Western Stock Show. Last week he showed a goat and this week he showed his steer, Remington. He and Remington managed to bring home a beautiful buckle with a Reserve Champion Showmanship honor, and they were 3rd in the Jr. Market Show in the Maine class. I think it goes without saying, but the kids has show fever! Calving season is in full swing, we are excited about the potential that the calves that have hit the ground have!
After hours of playing with the sorting stick, Brewer finally gave in.
Preg checking was a great success! Look for calves out of Monopoly 4, Moonlight, Walk This Way, Unstoppable, Man Among Boys, and embryos by Heat Seeker and Heat Wave.
Today we are preg checking 107 cows and 53 heifers! So far we have 2 Heat Seeker Embryos expected (full siblings to the Ohio State Fair Champion Steer) and an original Heatwave embryo that is the full sib to the Minnesota State Fair Champion Steer. Also expecting numerous Monopoly 4 calves, Comfort Zone, Unstoppable, Young Money and Moonlight, to name a few!
