Starting second pass…

…after about 45 days rest.

Thistlehill Farm Grass

Grandson Church says too many weeds though that’s not apparent in the picture.

We calculate we have about 54,000 pounds animal weight per acre…just about a quarter of what we really need to see the results off mob grazing. At this level the cows can still afford to be selective. And there’s only limited trampling affect.

The obvious answer is to reduce the size of the paddocks but that brings up the question of water and shade.

Yes, we could bring in more cows but it’s almost breeding time and again this year we’ll be testing several young bulls after ai-ing.

Interesting choices for a young cattleman.
