This is me and my oldest daughter six years ago. At that time the girls were very intrested in farming and cattle. Now as teenagers they just hate it...:-(

Good photos :-)

Not alot of Charolais cattle here in Tas now (used to be popular a few years back); just a few stud operators left here now, I think.

Angus & Hereford would be the two most popular breeds here now, amongst commercial cattlemen.

Great photo's again Lennart. And don't worry about teenager's and their mood. When they come little older they will again like working with animals and farm:-)

Re: Our Charolais cattle
I love the first two pictures. Reminds me of the time when we still had cows. Sadly they're all gone now. :-(

About you're daughters, be careful what you say. Swedish girls with a farm in the backround might be some people's dream. :-D You might get a LOT of mail.......

I just couldn't resist the old chliché about swedish girls, sorry. ;-)

Keep on posting those very nice and interesting pics.

Thanks all!

I'm not worried about my girls, they are free to make their choise!
And Martin M, for the moment farming is the safest way to be rejected!;-)

Re: Our Charolais cattle
A few years ago we updated the barn for the cows, today we can have legallly 68 cows, but to decrease work with mucking and straw bed maintenance we only have 60 cows here. At the update we put see-trough plastic plates on the end walls and opened the roof for ventilation. We got a light and clean air barn by that!

We try to get all cows to calve between january and april in the barn. In the beginning of may all cattle excluding bulls for slaughter are moved out on pasture. In the first half of september we try to take the calves away from the cows, and here we are preparing this work!

Water is important, and it is not in all places we have water naturally, then we need to have tubs for the water. Here we a re mowing a water tub with the Cat Telehandler.

Re: Our Charolais cattle
When we take away the calves we take all cattle inside the barn. We let the cows be out at the feeding place, and locks the calves inside at the straw bed.
