On the move


We gave the herd a day to rest and recuperate from the stress of branding and today we rounded them up again and head towards the "York Place". The York Place (named for the original homesteaders) is part of the family ranch but the parcel is not attached to the main property and is located a few miles down the road.

For the most part, those old cows know exactly where they are going but the neighbor's bulls and alfalfa fields can be a bit of a distraction before the main attraction. They were very good today and followed right along.


The herd will stay over at the York Place for a few weeks before they come back home. If we get good spring rains and the grass bounces back nicely, we can take them back over there in the fall. If not, we'll let the pasture rest until next season.
