Shepherd note: Jun 23, 2014 by Byron Palmer

  • DATE: June 23, 2014
  • GRID UNITS: 2b

Cattle on the ground for the non growing season rotation. Received cattle from Loren Poncia. They arrived at 10:30 am and again at 12:45 PM. We weighed all 109 of them. We let them into unit 3 along the driveway to begin. The harding grass and tall fescue are still green in those locations. We estimated they have about 39 days of grazing here. We will see. It was a lot better to receive at 10:30 AM then 5:30 AM. The cattle all seem to be healthy and happy. Weighing them took quite a while with the getting them into the smaller pen being the hardest part of the deal. We may have to rethink how we do that. Most of the grass on the property is brown now with some strongholds of green under trees and in sub irrigated pastures
