Today on Pine Ranch Erika and Cyle are taking the bulls out of the breeding fields. They gather the bulls, sort them from the cow/calf pairs and move them into the bull field where they will spend the fall and winter.
The bulls are out with the mature cows for 50 days. Removing the bulls after 50 days allows Erika and family to focus in on the goal of better fertility in their cattle. Having cows that can be bred sooner is beneficial to ranchers, resulting in a more uniform group of calves (similar size and weight) to sell in the fall.
