Shepherd note: Mar 28, 2014 by Byron Palmer

March 28th

Byron: Today we moved the cattle from paddock 2 down the hill from Marius’s house and into the dry lot we prepared on the woods road. It occurs to me that at some point when we scale we will have to get better and more efficient at putting up fence. Specifically we will need to mark out bigger units from the beginning, maybe with an ATV, maybe with a spindle. 7 still has a little cough, but everyone else seems to be fine. They have a fair amount of grass, but i think they could stand more. We will see on the scales. We are looking to get half an inch of rain tonight and quarter tomorrow so we have the cattle all tucked into the dry lot with feed to keep them off the grass lands in the rain.
