Cows are being wintered over.
We were going to try to a) move the steer to the lawn on the west side of the house and b) plow the existing pasture to prepare for re-seeding. We were going to try to get this done this year however it’s already too wet in the pasture to plow and it will soon freeze. SO …
Plan B is to get some hay, leave the steer where they are at (for now) and do a frost planting in the spring (frost planting does not require plowing).
In the meantime Tara is going to analyze the feed needs and I am going to check with JR Byers on getting a custom feed mix for the remainder of winter; hopefully that will get some weight on these critters and get them ready to butcher.
