Whether the groundhog sees his shadow tomorrow or not, I know that spring and calving season are not too far away. After a pretty tough January, it is nice to see normal weather and a string of days without rain so that I can feed the cattle out on pasture without tromping up the soil. In this picture, our herd of bred cows and bred heifers have just been been fed hay on a new piece of fresh ground. I move the poly tape that you see on the right hand side of the picture each day so that I can feed on a new area. Almost all the cows and coming two year old heifers in this group are in their third trimester of pregnancy with the first calves due next month.
