Gathering cows off the Med Bow

02 Oct
cows not wanting to leave the Forest

and we have to leave the Forest because???

October 1st is our off date for the cows on the Medicine Bow National Forest grazing allotment. We have had a blessedly wet summer, so we are leaving plenty of feed behind. The days have been warm, so the cows see no reason to leave to Forest. Still, we have to gather them and trail them into Sheep Mountain, our contiguous private land pasture. Good grass awaits them there. The next project is to work the cows and calves.

    It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
