The cows will begin calving in 3 weeks...
It is time to trail them down river to the
4 miles of gravel roads ahead of us...
I am driving the hay wagon ahead of the cattle...
you can see them following me
in the side view mirror.
We have made it out onto the main gravel road...
the older cows know right where they are going,
they have made this trip many times.
Traffic slows up the drive,
but we work the cattle around them
and keep on going.
We have made it off the road and into
the cow pasture...
The cows all stop for a drink,
before moving on over the hill to the cow barns
to meet up with the rest of the mama cow herd.
It was a beautiful day today here in
We have done this same cattle drive in the past
in very snowy conditions.
This is the main cow barn....aka the Silo.
There is a 2nd cow barn down below.
The new spring calves will be born here.
Please enjoy the video below
of our trip along the gravel road
herding the mama cows to their calving grounds:
