Fall weaning on the Broken Spear Ranch
The Fence Post
For Gail and Millie Allen, who own the Broken Spear Ranch near La Junta, Colo., it is the end of one year of raising cattle and the beginning of another.
For a cow-calf operation like the Allens, the two run together at the fall weaning. Cows and their calves, which were born in the spring, have to be gathered up and separated.
