Late June and Early July are busy times on the farm. We cut, dry, bale, load and store all the hay that we will be using for the rest of the year. Long, hot days in the hay fields are welcomed by the herd to supplement their open grazing. A few of our animals are fed inside the barn, for instance, when we are feeding the weaning calves, or getting the show animals in prime condition. Most of the time the herd is fed in outdoor feeders or directly on the ground.
