The first part of our spring calving season has been sucessfully completed. As of February 25, 2009, we have eleven calves (six heifers, five bulls). Our next group starts on March 20, 2009. The sires of the heifers are Star Power, Dream On, Shear Force, Momentum, and Lucky Man; the sires of the bulls are Dream On, Trademark, Powerline, and Momentum. The birth weights range from 65 lbs. to 99 lbs., with the average weight being 82 lbs. All calves were born unassisted, with the exception of a Momentum bull calf out of a first calf heifer–we gave her just a little help to get started, then she did the rest. Four of these calves were born out of first calf heifers, all of them got their calves up and nursing very quickly. Sucessful calving seasons are one of the many reasons to choose Simmental cattle.
