This fall we've used the Yeomans plow to break up compaction and increase water absorption in our pastures all in an effort to increase soil fertility. Check out the Yeomans Plow Company website.
We tried out the QuietWean nose tag weaning system on our 2017 calves just a few weeks ago and loved the results. Using the nose tags the calves are able to stay along side their mothers. The nose tag restricts nursing access and slowly weans the calf over a 4 to 5 day period without the stress of cow/calf separation.
