Bulls and heifers breed for about 10-12 years
Heifers will average about 8-10 calves.

The Pioneer Hall houses a flea market and a stage area that hosts bands and unique contests such as the husband calling contest and kids calling their moms contest. I usually stay away from those "calling contests".
Out on the front lawn is a large display of antique farm machinery.
One of many tractors on display.
I went inside to listen to some fine bluegrass being performed by The Old Dudley band.

More pictures of the tractors please'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

One of the more unique things I saw this year.
That is a garage door with built in tappers. When it is not busy they keep the door up. This establishment has two of these. Note the black hose on the left. The beer lines run through that. The kegs are actually stored in a freezer.
I will be looking into this in more detail next year!
