Time to get y’all back up to date on what has been going on here at JJB Cattle Co.
For starters the Iowa Beef Expo Hereford Sale was awesome again this year! The quality of the cattle continues to increase and the prices they bring reflect that. Both of our lots went to great homes our About Time sired heifer went to Dawson Stream, he will be taking her out for her first show this weekend and we can’t wait to hear how it goes. Our Right Track sired bull went to the Keltner family in Pearl City, Illinois and we go to work in their Hereford herd this spring.
This year at the Beef Expo the Iowa Hereford Breeders Assoc. held a banquet and I think it was great. They sold a bunch of stuff to benefit the juniors, it was great to see the outpouring of support for their program. I hope they will be able to do some cool stuff with all of the funds raised.
Calving has been going very well. We are definitely bull heavy this year but they sure look good. Hopefully our next round of embryo calves will yield some heifers for us.
I got a GoPro camera from Crystal for Christmas and now that the weather has warmed up a bit I can’t wait to shoot some stuff around the farm. The only video that I have done so far is a time lapse of our Expo bull Power the night before we headed to the sale. More to come…
