Wordless Wednesday: Feeding Stock


Being home on the family operation means helping catch up on the to-do list and helping dad feed the cattle. Its a cold, sometimes messy job, but someone has to keep feed in front of these cattle. Forage is the major diet for our cattle. Most of the forage sources in our area grow only during the warm (Spring/Summer) season, so we must harvest excess forages during the growing season to feed in times when fresh forages are not available. I think of it as raising beef on the hoof, because at the end of the day I can go home and enjoy a warm meal and know that the cattle are full too.
