When we take the bulls out of the cows, and the heat of summer starts to kick in full force. We gather all the cows and put them on the meadows. They are on both sides of the creek and trees. We have 2 different meadows that the cows are in. On one meadow, we have our first calf heifers and 3 year olds. On the other meadow, we have the rest of the cows. The older Hereford bulls are in a pasture that has waist high grass! With this heat, they have lost the desire to get out and look for "that" cow they may have missed! (fingers crossed they stay put). The baby Hereford bulls are in a pasture of their own. So they don't get hurt by the bigger guys. The Angus bulls are on the other side of the creek from the baby Hereford bulls. And we are still moving the replacement heifers every 7 days. Here are a few pictures of cows on the meadows.
We irrigate the meadows with the creek. There are check dams and pipes that you can close to divert water on to the meadow. Makes for great grass.
