Introducing Our Kaw-Liga

 

 

Kaw-liga al

Well, where does one start?  We realized many years ago just what an impressive job King Arthur was doing on his sons and daughter here at Dora Lee. King Arthur was imported into Canada from Scotland  back in about 1970. I believe that King Arthur was the best beef bull ever to set foot here on Canadian soil.

Our first order of business was to breed one of our homozygous polled cows to the legendary King Arthur. We did get the polled bull calf we wanted, and in my humble opinion Kaw-Liga has turned out to be an impressive up and coming herd sire.

We do have several of his offspring on the ground and we believe them to be special youngsters, which will again help us to “raise the bar” here at Dora Lee.

Being a huge  fan of  the late and great Hank Williams, the name Kaw-liga came from one of Hank’s many number one hits back about 1950 . We just thought Hank Williams being a pioneer in the western music field, that perhaps in many ways Kaw- Liga will also be a pioneer.

Is this old Cowboy excited? O yah.  Please do stay tuned, we are expecting great things from our Kaw-Liga bull.

A Chill is in the Air

Here it is November, some early morning thoughts from this old cowboy. It has been a year to remember so far, dry summer etc. However, things have a way of working out here at Dora Lee.

Our hay crop has been baled and placed in storage, Pastures have held the own this summer, and our rotational grazing program has continued to work well here.

Calves were weaned late August, herd sire prospects are in our bull facility, with one youngster already at his new home (Claudia Giermindl) in New Brunswick. Steer calves are in their new home of long time customer, feed lot operator Marvin Burkhart.  The price was down from last year, however $1.80 per lb we felt was a fair price for 800 lb steer calves.

Our cow herd is still out there on our pastures and just starting to graze our paddocks one last time before winter arrives.

Really, Betty and I have very little to complain about. We do have health and family – a way of life we both very much enjoy. Yes, our weather has turned cooler here Dora Lee, winter is on it’s way.
