Swinging ‘B’ Ranch hosts out of state visitors

We enjoyed some visitors to our ranch the other day from Calif. and Wis.  I believe, they got to see a little action in Central Texas.  Between snakes, wild hogs, crazy dogs, and cowboys hats, we all had a blast!

Can you pick out the real Texan?

They even got to see Crawford and met President Bush, and eat at one of his favorite places.

Storm Clouds rumble thru’ Axtell

From nary a drop, to many blessings above!  It started out as a cloudy Thursday afternoon, and developed in to a full blown storm.  This is what the clouds looked like right before sunset.

And the clouds continued to build……

It was an absolutely beautiful sunset.  And I took way too many pictures.  But the clouds and the sky was so pretty here at our little Axtell Ranch.

Work Day

bull-calves-May-09-025

It was a big work day here at the ranch on May 28th.  Doc  Travis from Belton Vet. Clinic came up and we kinda got a very late start of about 11:00 am.  Of course, I was late and thus delayed the action.  There was six of us besides Doc and so it went very smooth as we went thru’ our entire herd.  The star of the crew was Doc, but the best looking one was my wife Norma Jean.  The rest of us was some where in between.  I have recovered now from my soreness and can once again move in a normal fashion. 

  We had a lot of fun, but this is a very important task for any successful ranch.  We 8- way all of the calves, and yearlings.  We gave shots of Lepto & Triangle 4 to all the cows and yearlings.  We also wormed everything with Cydection and fly tagged each animal.  Six months from now we will be working the cattle again.  We stick to a program that will insure any purchaser a healthy animal.  Until next time just remember Beefmaster is the Breed of Choice! God Bless!  -mackie-
