October has been a kind month to us. We have had four inches of rain and some fabulous sunshine, all great growing conditions for our pastures. This is a sweet spot for us because the days are getting shorter and the colder, frosty weather is just around the corner and that slows the growth of the grass.
Mytty is now one month old and is loving the green grass! She weighs about ninety pounds and in addition to the grass also drinks her mother's milk. Her mother, a first calf heifer, is two years old and is about to be bred for the second time. We will turn our (lucky!) bulls in with the cows in the middle of November.
