Step 1 - Drink lots of momma milk

Step 2 - Show off how much milk you can get on your face instead of in your belly!!!

Marks favorite calf this spring is growing into a pretty nice steer calf. 

Brand new back rub - We hang these in the pastures to help with fly control.  They are a foam filled cotton sock that we soak with a mixture of mineral oil and fly spray.  The cows and calves walk under it and the oil/spray mix gets on their back and helps keep the flys off.  The dangly things are cotton strips that will help apply the fly spray on their faces.  Flys spread disease and decrease weight gain do to blood loss and extra energy spent swish tails and stomping feet.  This helps keep our cows and calves comfortable.
