    Yes, this copper and white-colored cat would not leave our campsite, even after the food was gone. Our two boys started asking, “Can we keep him, Dad? Can we?”

  • Beef cattle production is a year-round job. There are certain things you can do to make things more organized, whether you have a spring-calving or a fall-calving herd.

    For the spring-calving herd, consider cutting warm season grass pastures for hay if your reserves have not yet been restored. Fescue pastures tend to go dormant in July and August, so look for alternatives like warm-season grasses during this time period. Try to keep young calves gaining weight. Use pastures that you cut for hay; they wil have higher quality regrowth when it is available.
