The Newest Bovines

Yesterday Dave went to an auction to buy some heifers he had previewed a few weeks ago.  Three of these ladies are due to give birth in June.  One is a stocker for meat. They came off the truck at a run and covered in dried mud. Our herd greeted them with bellows from another pasture, and the pigs were quick to get to know the new girls. We will let them get familiar with the place for another week before introducing the other cattle. Once they have learned to get along, the whole herd will begin their warm weather pasture rotation. This brings our cattle number up to 14 and hopefully by the end of August we will have 5 additional calves.

food?
Knowing the pigs they are probably trying to figure out if these animals are food for them.
