Roosters

These are 3 roosters that were hatched on the Ranch

Eggs

These are some of the eggs that we have gathered from the Sil-o-link chickens....Wow the big one is a very large double yolk egg....And yes we did crack it and eat it.

Eggs

These are the 2 largest from the previous picture to show you exactly how big they are. The first egg would have graded out a large egg at the store. And both of these eggs are double yolk.

Calves

These are our current nursing calves. They are from 2 to 6 weeks old as of 1-8-2008. They will be weaned starting at 8 weeks and moved out into the pen with the other weaned calves. As soon as the grass comes out this spring they all will be moved into the pastures. At approximately 500 lbs. each they will then be sold.

Weaning Pen

This is the pen where we wean the calves. After they get to eating good they will be turned out on grass when the seasons permit. The big black calf is Anthony's 4-H show calf. He will be fed and pampered all summer to be shown at the Hot Spring County Fair this coming fall.

New Calves

These are 2 of our suckling calves as of 2-16-2008

Rare March Arkansas Snow

The following are scenes from the snow storm that hit Arkansas on 3-7-2008. Very beautiful scenery. And the boys got a day off of school.....Just enough snow to kill Cindy's yearning for Chicago type weather.

Snow Scene 2

Snow Scene 3

The chickens came out long enouigh to eat and then went right back into their coop until things warmed up a bit.

Snow Scene 4

This is looking west from the barn.

Anthony and Merbel

This Anthony with his first show calf Merbel.

Merbel was first in his class. At show time he weighed 1250 lbs. When he went to the slaughter house he was 1400 lbs.

The butcher said that all cuts of meat would grade USDA prime. And man the flavor and tenderness are unlike anything we have ever had.

Yahoo

Yahoo is Anthony's 2009 Club Calf. He is a half brother to 2008's Merbel.

He came to the Ranch on Halloween 2008.

The Girls

Who's Cuter?

Cindy came home with this bundle of cutness Fiday July 17, 2009....Man is she small....So her name is Bitsy for itsy bitsy.

So far Roxy isn't a bit jealous. She just can't understand why she can't play rough with her like she does with us.

Roxy and Bitsy

This is Roxy and Bitsy the day after Bitsy came to live with us. They are getting along great.

Bessie

Bessie is our resident milking cow. She is very multipurpose. We milk her a couple of times a week for our own use, we milk her for bottles to bottle feed a calf everyday and she also has calves that nurse on her to finish up what the milking machine doesn't get.

Belle

This is Belle our Brown Swiss nurse cow. She has the sweetest disposition. She will allow any calf to nurse on her. She also loves to give a good tongue bath to all of the calves and occasionally to the other cows in the field.

Newest Arrival 10/16/2009

This is Dixie she arrived on the ranch October 16, 2009. She is from Dorothy our Jersey milk cow and a Milking Shorthorn bull.

She is doing wonderful. She has already started eating hay at less than 2 weeks old.

Dixie on 4-1-2010

This is Dixie on April Fools day....WOW she has grown.

Shirley and Her Babies

This is a picture of our first time lactation Holstein Shirley nursing her calves on 5-22-10. She freshened on March 20th and is giving 8-9 gallons of milk a day. She is now nursing 5 calves a day and we are getting a gallon of milk a day for our own use.

Bessie

This is Bessie our Holstein in waiting. She is due with her second calf 7-16-10.

Turkeys

These are our Bourbon Red turkeys. We have 2 grown toms and one grown hen and 6 little ones.

Henrietta our hen sat on a clutch of eggs earlier and unfortunately none hatched. We think that the tom was too young. She has started laying again as of 6-1-10. We have seen the tom breeding her. So hopefully she can hatch us a clutch this time.

Baby Turkeys

These are our Baby Bourbon Red turkeys. They have just been fed. We got them when they were just a few days old and they have really grown.

Tom Turkey

This is Tom the turkey doing his strut.....

Ruthie

This is Ruthie. She came to us July 23, 2010. She had a beautiful Heifer calf on Sept 2, 2010 who we named Baby Ruthie.....Hmmm wonder who came up with that name???? Couldn't be Cindy....Nawwww....LOL

Ruthie and Baby Ruthie

This is Ruthie and her baby shortly after she was born on Sept 2, 2010. Momma took her out to see the farm and showed her the pond.

Meet Dudley

This is Dudley. He came to us today(10-27-10) from a local dairy.

He is a full blood Guernsey bull calf.

We are planning on raising him to use to sire our herd.

He sure is a cutie!!!!!

2011 Pork Chops

These girls came to us on Nov. 13 2010. They were about 25lbs when we got them and had just been weaned.
