Bull looks good. Cows look great. Nice looking herd.
Trying to figure out what they are grazing on. Is that a wet area that's all clumpy?

Jeanne this is a small section they are walking through to get to a bigger pasture. The lumps are all “ankle breakers”. When the ground is too wet and the cattle walk through it it makes deep ankle breakers... That’s about 60 years worth of them lol.

It’s solid ankle breakers all around the pond... They usually work around them but we have so much grass this year they have been spending a lot of time in them.. It also helps with flys on their legs...

Those guys are awesome looking. I've also found that those step in posts make great sorting sticks!

Bulls are great. What do you mean "sold they to the factory"?
