The Cattle Begin Their Spring Pasture Rotation
We bale grazed 5 cattle through the winter, and raised 5 calves on milk. Recently we brought in 4 heifers from another farm in the area, and this week we brought in a heifer and a steer from our neighbor. We want to keep the calves on milk a little longer, but we don’t want the main herd to be held back from the pasture, so last week we ran the cattle down to their first rotation area. It went as smoothly as we could have wished, unlike yesterday’s crazy pig move. More on that next time.
