❄️Winter weather means more time in the barn with your #PurinaFed calves. . Regularly check calves for early signs of stress, such as decreased eating and droopy eyes and ears. Checking calves frequently can help you catch challenges early, so you can help them get back on track. If you notice sick calves, offer LAND O LAKES® Electrolytes to help them rehydrate. .

The “Old Cows” . . I received a question as to why I call some of our cows the “old cows” and realized that my ranch lingo may not always make sense.🤦🏼‍♀️ They “old cows” are a group of females that are over the age of 5 years old. These ladies are the pros. They know the drill and what to expect. I swear that they know what we are some days before we even do. We separate our cows out in each groups, bred heifers (will be first time moms), young cows (will be having their 2nd or 3rd calf), and the old cows. This helps us monitor each group and provide for them as needed. . . For example, when we move them to a new field they know where we are going. Some will pass me when I am driving an ATV or tractor to lead them and they go to the correct field. During calving, they will have their baby, clean it off, and wait for us to vaccinate and tag it with ease. They may have a minor pit stop in the maternity ward, aka calving barn, and the cows know the routine. They don’t always like it as they are extremely protective but they usually let us do what needs to be done. . . For now, the “old cows” are living it up on corn stalks before they are brought home to have their calf. Calving season will be here soon! . . . . #DandDbeef #ranchtoplate #nebraska #ranchlife #farmlife #nebraskalife #nebraskagram #redangus #angus #cows #rancher #drovers #cattletales #farmranchlife #danddcattleco #knowyourfood #farmtotable #beefitswhatsfordinner #nebraskabeef #agdaily #rurallife #ranchher #localbeef #sustainablefood #millenial #millenialwomen

As Christmas draws near, we’re thinking a lot about how lucky we are to spend each day with our family. . For four generations, the Beeman family has worked side-by-side on our ranch in Harwood, Texas. . We love sharing our values and our product with other families. It all starts on our ranch with nearly 3,000 Akaushi cattle. These cattle have helped grow the U.S. Akaushi breed with bulls and females sold nationwide to other cattle producers. . . . #akaushi #wagyu #beef #beefcattle #beefitswhatsfordinner #cattle #cattleofig #cattlebreeds #ranch #ranch365 #ranching #farming #livestock #farm #cattleranch #cattlefarm #cattle365 #farmanimals #farmphotography #livestock #farmlife #texas #texasag #texasagriculture #countryliving #ruralamerica
