That didn’t take long…

Thistle Hill Farm Grass

What a difference five days makes. Grass is now 8 to 10 inches.

We’ll have to move fast or risk falling impossibly behind. Grandson Church is erecting the stakes for one-acre paddocks and the main herd of 30 cows and their new calves will have an acre a day.

Look carefully and you’ll see a healthy stand of clover.

Thistlehill Farm dirt

Out of curiosity Church turned over a shovel of dirt. Look carefully near the top and left of the picture and you’ll see earthworms. I count five in less than a square foot. Again note the clover…and the organic matter. Enlarge all our blog pictures by simply tapping on them.

Healthy soil makes for healthy cows and healthy beef!
