Each spring, as vaccination time approaches, I tend to worry that the handling facilities won’t be thawed out or be still full of snow.
But for the first-time ever, it happened!
I’m about three weeks away from breeding, so the cows needed to be vaccinated. Unfortunately, the corral still has about three feet of snow in it.
Due to the fact that the ice was dangerous, and the head gate wouldn’t fully open, we ran all the cows through the maternity pen to vaccinate. The calves, meanwhile, we did in big groups and we made the yearlings go through the chute.
