We, like other parts of the country, are experiencing a late Spring. The land is just now starting to green up.
A couple weeks ago we were worried about this. Our hay from the summer was almost gone, and there was no new grass in the pastures. This unfortunate combination meant we had to buy hay for the cattle.
Farmer John and his Dad took two trips to a farm in the neighboring county to get four round bales of hay.
Farmer John unloaded three of them in a spot the cattle could not access.
Then gave one to the herd in their pasture. They were so excited that they pushed and shoved...
...and rolled the bale down into a little ravine.
Despite the cattle's antics, this hay has worked well for us. It fed the cattle while Farmer John was away for several days, and should last until they are once again on green grass.
