Cow Sale

A couple weekends ago we took a trip down to Bland, Missouri to go to one of Luke's customer's Bull & Cow Sale. Luke had done the nutrition work for all the yearling bulls that the Gerloff's were selling and he was curious to see how they would do. We are also culling out some of our late calving cows this year so we thought it might be a good opportunity to purchase some replacements. Molly was a good baby and did really well in the stroller for the most part. She enjoyed all the "sounds" of the auction and walking around looking at cattle.

Well, it turns out we did buy a heifer & a cow to add to our herd. This meant that we had to wait in this line to load out:Needless to say, we got a little bored waiting in line and Luke decided to teach Molly how to drive:

Don't worry, we were not moving at this time:

The bulls sold pretty well and they were really happy with the way they looked, so I think they were pleased with Luke's work. Our new replacements have settled in and are enjoying their new home.
