All winter, we keep the cattle close to home so we can keep them fed. There is very little nourishment in the native winter grass in Kansas, so we must feed hay to the cattle. That means every single day working with tractors and often in the snow or mud to feed the cows and calves. Can you understand why I may not like winter?!
But this weekend is the first weekend in May and we are hauling cattle out to grass. We still have a few around to feed for another week or so until I get them bred, but they are quickly getting cranky with us as they would rather be enjoying the green grass.
