Back in Time - Photography Assignment
My nephew travelled from North Dakota to work on Grandma Rosie's dairy farm for a few summers. In addition to milking cows, Bruce fed calves and the cows, irrigated, and worked in the fields.
The calves in the pen behind Bruce are just a few of those who were bucket fed twice a day. The heifers were raised for the dairy herd, and the bull calves were castrated when they were branded. Those steers were then fattened to take to the sale barn in Riverton. Each year, one steer was taken to Farmer's Packing in Kinnear to be butchered. Nothing tastes better than beef from your own herd.
