To the banked grass calving ground. Thankful that we got our winter weather during the winter versus now. I guess were not out of the woods yet though.

Apr 15, 2017 | 08:39 3 Looking good Grass. Close to a foot here in NW sask. Bribing works out a lot better than chasing. Used to chase everything with horses and quads and dogs. Now we have a bribe up front and a dog and truck behind. Works a lot better most times. Keep em just walking and calm and there are less problems. Reply With Quote

This year we'll graze it twice and graze some other pastures once to set them up for banked next spring. Cows have just started calving. Reply With Quote
