Putting The Herd To Work

I have been mowing down those dang-blasted Canadian Thistles for several days now. I tend to follow around where the main herd is grazing and mow close by so that they will help with cleanup of the vegetation.

Although they don’t care for thistles, the cows will pick through the fresh mowed weeds, grass and brush before it dries. Once new growth appears on the mowed off stalks, they will help keep the weeds from again taking over by browsing the tender tips.
