We did it!
It’s nearing the end of May, but we finally have cows out on grass.
As I remarked on another blog, we are more constrained by fence (or lack thereof) than the condition of our grass. Sure, the grass was late in coming this year due to our rather excessive and persistent winter, but grass without fence is of no use.
So we’ve got our first official paddock, a nice little 2.4 acre deal just over the hill behind the barn.
The cows are quite enjoying themselves. Just after being let into the new paddock, they commenced to running, jumping, kicking and generally partying like only cows on fresh grass can do.
