Matt was checking out the blog tonight, to see what I’ve been posting.
“I don’t see any cow pictures on the blog.”
So here you go, cow pictures. These gals were standing around in the cattle shed gossiping when I trekked out on my duck hunt yesterday. (Yes, that’s our sorry old cattle shed. Stop laughing. I can hear you laughing!)
The rest of the herd (and Star) was hanging out around the bale feeder. Right now they’re finishing off a cornstalk bale. When Matt goes out they start mooing, griping to him about making them eat cornstalks. But they just stared at me. They know I’m of no use to them.
And then they went back to ignoring me.
Matt alternates hay bales with cornstalk bales to stretch our feed budget a bit. Just for the breeding stock, though. Feeder calves are all hay, all the time. But about 4 weeks before calving the cows will go back to all hay, all the time. They’ll need the nourishment for that last month of gestation and subsequent nursing duties.
