A quick lunchtime update

We spent most of the morning re-grouping and moving heifers and dry cows between pastures.

We also took a few minutes to scout the massive network of dams a colony of beavers has constructed that has backed up lots of water into one of our pastures. It's going to take a good bit of time to tear those things out, and we'll probably have to use a boat to access some of them. I'm not sure when we'll get around to the demolition, but it had better happen before it warms up very much...the snakes in that bottom are large and numerous.

This afternoon we'll be separating a group of heifers from our milking cows as we pull them off the grazing. Afterward, it looks like we'll just be doing our typically milking and feeding.

Have a good afternoon!
