The bottom of the barrel…

…the stockpile barrel, that is.
If there is a key in cattle raising, it is to avoid feeding hay at $100 a ton for as long possible.

Here Church opens one of our last stockpiled pastures and the cows don’t need a second invitation.

Native grasses here for the most part but will satisfy them until AI is scheduled for mid-month. Then we will bring a cover bull in and hope the grass will last until the end of the month.

There’s 22 acres of grass left just across the road…tantalizing but Church has decided to feed that to our steers destined for meat.
