Been away from a forum for a very very long time. Here are some photos from this year calving season.

Today born Tomschoice Onslow heifer from simxlimx heifer. 283days gestation, around 45kg, calved unassisted.

VRB (Verbeterd Roodbont) cross heifer from angusxlimx cow, 287days gestation, 51,5kg, unassisted.

3 weeks old limx heifer from a stock bull.

9 days old piedmontese cross heifer from limxbbxdairy cow. 280 days gestation.
Having way more heifers this year than bulls so far. Hopefully it'll change soon. Still around 45 cows left to calve.
