Upon releasing the cows they immediately went to exploring their new home. I think they walked the entire fence line in less than 10 min. After their first round Ellesie decided to chase them down the road. We all got a kick out of watching our animal lover herd the cows!
Getting cows again here on the farm was part of my life-long dream. When we moved to the farm when I was 7, my Granddad offered me the opportunity to trade cattle with him. I would give him a deposit on a calf when the Herefords were bread and the balance when the calf was born, selling them 6-9 months later and making a $200-300 profit. However Granddad did most of the work and I wish I’d spent more time learning from him. Now we start a new venture on the farm with cows and I will learn as I go. Granddad would be proud!
