It is very important to us for our cattle to be comfortable and happy everyday. We hand feed them everyday for the last 150 days. Many of them are given names and receive head massages! "grin" Cattle are smart and when treated with respect, learn to trust all of us on the farm. After leaving the pasture, we give them buckets of oats and bales of alfalfa for protein. Once they learn to regulate themselves, they eat as many oats as their bodies need. Needless to say, they don't go hungry! They also receive fresh water from our natural springs. No city water here....!
