Category: Live from the Ranch
Our cattle have nearly finished their rotation out on the eastern part of the ranch. During the breeding season it is crucial that they are on the best feed available and not having to look very hard for it. Because of this, we moved them through the sand at a fairly quick pace trying to utilize the fresh tender plants before they matured and became less palatable. It seems to be working as the entire herd looks healthy and happy. This is not the best photo to illustrate this point but it was the best that I could do at the tail end of the move. The cattle move very easily now after being moved so consistently throughout the summer. We give thanks to Nick for putting so much time and attention into the training, health and well-being of this herd. They are essentially on autopilot because of his efforts and when it comes time to move them, we merely open the gate and seemingly stand back as the find their way to it and move on to the next pasture.
