Well i'm proud to say that we have a bustling five calves on the farm!!! We are awaiting one more to grace us with their presence. It's pretty exciting that all the moms are delivering with no problems. I'll be posting some new pictures of the babies. We have yet to see what the new calves are but can't wait to see them grow and flourish. Most of all the calves will be for sale once they are old enough. We will let you guys know about the sexes once we have been able to check them out. Most of the bulls, unless told ahead of times we will turn into steers.
Here is our first blog post for the new website! I'm so excited to finally get the website/blogspot up and running. Like stated in the "getting to know you" section we are currently stationed at Yokota Airbase in Japan but have traveled back and forth a few times to spend some time on the farm.
Our cattle can withstand some pretty gnarly conditions and are thriving right now in the spring time season. The new grass is popping up and our heifers and cows are giving birth to their offspring. We have recently welcomed two new calves to the herd. The newest of the heifers that we bought about a year ago have given birth. We are awaiting the other four babies here anyday. The offspring is from our late bull Big Boy. He passed away a little less than a year ago. When we were back in Missouri in February 2012 we purchased another bull and he is ready to take on the herd as main man.
There will be more pictures when we receive new pictures of the herd. Until then, please email us with any questions.
My name is Shayna Poole and I have started this page and blog to show our life on the farm. I married my husband on 2008 and have been living off the land with our heritage breed cattle. We are currently stationed overseas at Yokota Airbase, Japan and we have friends helping us with ensuring the herd stays strong. We have two beautifully crazy kids that we can't wait to share the farming lifestyle with.
