Shepherd note: April 9, 2014 by Byron Palmer

  • DATE: April 9, 2014
  • GRID UNITS: 3a

The cattle were in unit 2 today in grid location 3A. I feel a lot better today after having fully recovered from a very long hot day on monday. The stock seem healthy and as they were when the arrived a little flighty still. There flight zones vary quite a bit. It was warm today maybe 70 or so. The grass looks like it is about to really start going to seed. The oats and some other annuals have really gone to seed, but overall most of the forage is still vegetative. The cattle are staying in the same paddock we had them in yesterday as there was still quite a bit of grass in it. We are not worried about high densities right now as we have two herds and have another shipment coming in Friday. Realized today that we could use a box of gear just for setting up a training area. Fence posts with two clips that are always ready to go and fence flags.
