These lovely boys are destined for the table.
The girls prefer eating the cabbage leaves hanging from the tree rather than off the ground.
Noisy & bossy but good watch "dogs".
Heading off to check where the electric fence is shorting out.
Moving Klaus & Lavender into a fresh paddock.
With the use of electric fencing we've divided all of our larger paddocks. This enables us to move the cows onto fresh pasture every day or so to minimize parasite and worm infestation. Allowing them access to fennel and wormwood when they feel they need it, we were able to stop using drenches more than eight years ago. Chemical drenches don't fit in with our organic lifestyle and we have never seen worms in the gut of any of the beef we have butchered on the property.
Wherever you are, I hope you're having a lovely 1st day of June Sunday.
