The main herd has been watching the far field. They have noticed that the grass has been growing over there and we have noticed them spending quite a bit of time along the fence line watching the field from afar with what looks like longing in their eyes. The herd sire, Prowler has been the most noticeable as he stays rooted into one place while the rest of the herd meanders around or heads up into the forest to look for the spring grasses in the open areas.
To appease the herd and to take away free grazing rights from the several herds of elk, we moved the herd through the nursery field and over to the far, far field for a week or two of fresh pasture. By moving the herd we opened up twenty six acres of field along with nearly ten more acres of forage area around the field. We went ahead and combined the nursery field inhabitants with the main herd for this spring jaunt in a new area. The six new calves mingled in and had no issues fording the river to get the new pasture with their mothers.
This grass on the other side of the fence is definitely greener since it has not had the herds grazing on it over the winter other than those pesky roving herds of elk.
