Brutal Calving Season for the Big Sandy Area Ranchers
March 14, 2018
This winter has been a nightmare for everyone, but more so for those who are calving out in this weather.
We all have a pretty good understanding of what it must be like, but not really because we aren't experiencing it. We aren't in the thick of it. We aren't exhausted. We aren't struggling hourly with the elements of the weather, the freezing wind, the enormous drifts, or the temperamental cow. We aren't fighting for the life of a calf or it's mother. We aren't frozen to the bone after walking a mile and a half in below zero weather to move a cow to the shed, only to lose her.
