Keeping Us On Our Toes!

It was very honouring to receive this award last Wednesday at the Grasslands Summit held at the Douglas Lake Ranch. **(Click on the blue ‘Grasslands Conservation Council of British Columbia Award’ to read write up and award)**
When we got home from the ‘tour’ we were quickly reminded of the constant challenge of managing livestock. A group of twelve cows with calves and a bull that we had in a small pasture, were overdue in being moved out to a new pasture! With the past 3 weeks being extremely hot and dry, their pasture was completely done! We were able to quickly check the next pastures’ fence, open the gate and move them on to ample feed.
It was a great reminder of how grass management is a constant battle and always needs attention and improvement. With rest until next year and ample rain, our ‘overgrazing mistake’ will be remedied.

    Great to read of your success. If I ever get to Canada I would like visit your farm and compare it to our own here in Australia.
