Stopping to pose for a picture.

One of the signs that the worst of the wet spring weather is over, is the opening of the pasture for grazing by our small herd of steers. The grass has grown tall enough and the ground has firmed up so their hooves don’t sink in and hurt the turf. This moment has come early this year, just like corn planting.

Just a few days ago, we added 4 more calves to the mix. They haven’t quite integrated yet but soon will find their place in the pecking order and feel right at home. We raise our own cattle in order to provide meat for our own table as well as many friends and relatives. A few quarters of beef even find their way to Colorado every year! Many compliments are receive about the quality of the finished product.
