Cows On Spring Pasture

April 2nd was the end of our winter breeding season and we brought together all of our breeding cows and heifers to one pasture. This is a hay meadow that had spring rye and vetch in it. We like to clean it up for a future hay cutting and there is no better way than to mob graze it. Today is April 8 and the field is almost eaten down. The cows can probably stay here another 5-6 days, then we have to move them to better pasture.
