Working Ranch - November/December 2017

Busy & Blessed Craig’s parents: Wayne (who passed away in 2011) & Kay Flanagan. JT moving hay. We all met in town at the Mexican food place for lunch and then went back and fi nished our jobs. Once we were fi nished and had everything fed and tended to, we went south of town to get some bulls up. We went back to the pens to sort off 70 steers and 70 heifers to make two truckloads to sell. Craig had to go check on a fi eld that we are going to sprig as soon as we get roots. We’ve decided after talking to the buyers that OKC West is the best avenue for us to sell our calves this time, so we’ve lined up two semis to be there fi rst thing Monday morning. Had to make a late run to the next town for some more plumbing supplies. THURSDAY, MARCH 2 I dropped off JT at school then picked up Craig at the body shop where his truck was going to be painted. I had to make a quick trip to run Craig back home and double back to Bonham for a FSA County Committee Meeting. The meeting took longer than I had expected but I was out by 11:30, so then I headed to Fort Worth to pick up a load of mineral from the plant. Later, I stopped by a feed store in McKinney to discuss mineral with them. Chad and Craig moved hay around, fed, and checked the cows while I was gone. Marty has been running the fi eld cultivator this week getting the ground ready for sprigging. Home for the night. Grilled cheese for supper and catch up on laundry. FRIDAY, MARCH 3 Joni took JT to school again this morning, so Craig and I got the plowing tractor moved to the next fi eld that Marty needs to run in today. Chad is spending the day welding at the pens 70 I WORKING RANCH I NOVEMBER / DECEMBER 2017
