On a very blustery December day it became evident that we needed to get the cows locked out of the hay field/grazing field. The moisture in the ground is now making the field soggy and the big feet of the cattle are tearing up the turf.
After getting soaked through, Mike was able to get the 10 t-posts drove into the ground, insulators put on the posts, and white electric fence tape strung in two rows. The area near the barn has handles to open as a gate where we drive in to get bales of hay for feeding.
As I was taking this picture the herd was clear in the back of this field along the hillside. You may just be able to see a few black dots back there. The herd moves forward to eat their two meals a day at the three round outdoor feeders.
