I have continued to haul manure every nice day all month. I have hauled away two big piles of composting manure and am working on the last pile, which is the biggest and may take 7 days to haul away.
The cows and sheep are out grazing in the winter pastures. We have been feeding lick barrels. They are a cooked molasses and grain tub. The tubs weigh about 250 pounds. They cost about $0.40 a pound or $800 a ton. We have ordered a load of cattle cake six weeks ago and am still waiting for delivery. This cake would have the same amount of protein for about $366 a ton delivered. Cake is a compressed grain mixture with vitamins and minerals.
Cows out grazing along creek.
Cows lounging around the water tank. It is supposed to snow later today so the sky is overcast.
The sheep grazing in the distance. Picture turned out pretty good for as far away as they were. Maybe next week we will get cake in and start feeding them. We will turn the bucks out soon. Haven't quite decided when we want to start lambing, but will decide soon.
