Up through the end of December the grass continued to stay green and even grew a little. The cattle kept nibbling on it and they clearly were getting nutrition from it because they didn’t need much additional haylage. Now the cold weather and snow are here so they’re getting most of their nutrition from what we feed them. They also browse on tree buds and other types of forbs. They are very efficient animals! There were two very windy days with single digit and below zero temperatures. It’s hard not to relate our discomfort in the cold to them, so I over fed them. When the wind stopped and it warmed a little, I went to feed them and they were all so full they didn’t even move after I spread out the feed. They are fat and happy! But that’s the way we want them.
