This time of year, the main herd has access to the large fields for grazing.
The grass did not grow during the very hot summer but now that the moisture season has arrived there is quite a bit of foraging to be done. The herd will be able to nibble grass until the weather turns colder and the freezing weather stops growth.
We are feeding hay twice a day along with the open grazing to make sure they have enough to eat. The mother cows are already pregnant and we want the babies they are carrying to have a steady intake of nutrients.
