Work in Progress

Not a lot new around here.  Just the usual whirlwind of summer.  I trapped fenced in the elusive Guernsey last night.  She’s taken a liking to heading off to the tall and uncut to chill out and wait out the last days of her pregnancy.  187 more words

Early July Grazing

Now that the beef is harvested, it’s time to relax a little and get the cows back into following the rotation.  I had to leave this field to rotate the herd near the corral for loading ease earlier in late June, and the first part of July, now it’s time to finish this field up.  447 more words
