Last night we were able to put up 38 round bales of hay. This is a great start to next winter’s feed supply. Our neighbor cut, raked, tettered and baled the hay over the weekend and brought them up into the barn last night. We are excited to have a great jump start for next season. Now the challenge is to get some of the pasture eaten down by the cows that we have. We may be in the market for a few more adult animals or steers that need to finish. There is a total of about 12 acres that needs to be eaten, well more than our three adult cows will be able to eat.
We do not supplement our cattle at this time, featuring a grass fed beef program. We hope to provide good, flavorful and nutritional meat once our calves finish out. We also employ a hormone-free, organic program. (We did not certify our land organic, but sprays and chemicals are not used on our farm).
Until Next Time
