Another Promising Day On Wlden Marsh
I moved the cattle to the entrance section of the south marsh yesterday, where there is a small amount of decent grazing and they can welcome the two new cattle arriving tomorrow; hopefully, these will be Wayne and Waynetta. So the herd has increased from nine to fourteen cattle to more effectively graze the marsh, particularly during next year’s growing season. After calling for a herd increase, I must make sure that we don’t run short of grazing in the first quarter of next year. It’s difficult to find enough grazing for nine cattle during March and April, so I will have to be extra smart to get them through to next year’s spring grass without costly supplementary feeding.
