Cows waiting for some feed during our recent snow.  I won't go so far as too say they are tired of winter yet, they love feed being delivered to them, but I think they could do without the wind and cold.  Taken 1/20/2008.

The cows eating on their hay.  They could have probably gotten by a little longer without it but i have more than enough to get through the winter so I started feeding.  Taken 12/26/2007.

The cows waiting for there ration of cake on a snowy day.  Behind them is one of the haystacks of winter feed for them.  You can't see it all but there is about 500 tons of hay in this stackyard.  i truly don't believe I will have to feed a bit of the hay in this yard this winter.  Taken 12/21/2007.

The cows had a good scatter grazing until they saw the pickup.  They thought they were going to get fed so were following the pickup around.  Spoiled Cows, a little snow on the ground and they think they need a bale of hay. Taken 11/30/2007.

A cow enjoying the early morning sun on a cold morning.  She seemed to be giving me a look of "what do you want?"  This particular one is a two year old that had her first calf weaned this fall.  Pretty good shape for such a young critter.  Taken 12/2/2007.

A cow grazing out in a field of hay that i let go to seed this year.  I see more and more cows out in the field all the time now that other grass is running out.  I'm hoping by letting it go to seed it will thicken up some.  It is pretty skimpy in spots.  Taken 11/4/2007.

I'm trying something a little different this year.  Protein tubs.  They have been around for quite a while but I have never used them before.  They are big tubs with a free choice protein supplement in them which is supposed to help get some protein in the cattle when grazing the fall grasses that don't have much.  Here is a cow licking on one.  These particular ones are a new product on the market and I am not sure they are getting enough to do them any good.  I'll see how they do on them before I completely pass judgment but from what I see, I like the results.  Taken 11/19/2007.

The cows out grazing in some alfalfa fields.  There were a lot of cloudy days through October but very little rain.  Damn the bad luck.  Some moisture sure would have been nice.  Taken 10/13/2007.
