Thanks to Netzke Brothers (Lamberton, Minnesota) | 50 Units Dr. Who

Thanks to Glen and Kurt Netzke for your purchase of 50 units of Dr. Who! Stocking up on the deceased maternal legend while semen remains at $25 is a smart move. Thanks also for picking up 10 units of Cool Customer, a great option for breeding your carrier cows.

Butch's Boot Wash

After looking at some calves in the mud at Butch Perkin's we were thankful to rinse our boots with his custom hydrant that allows the water to come right out the side of the pipe. Great idea!
