    Default any cattle ranchers out there

    Our family runs cattle but I was wondering who else has cattle.

    We have both beef cattle and dairy cattle

    Do gerbils and chickens count?
    Seriously, around here, a 20-40 head is considered huge. My neighbor down the road has 4. Your pics make me long for a simpler, harder, more focused life!

    I run a few head. down to about 35 now. If I could teach mine to look healthy eating dirt like yours, I might grow the herd.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    What desert are you trying to run those cattle in?

    My pastures are starting to look like that. Mine all use roller skates to keep from walking off the pounds.

    Its Monsanto dirt, and its genetically modified, chalk full of nutrients, and easy to use. lol just kidding you know

    Actually this is just a large holding pen that we use for various jobs. The cattle are well fed and have lots of pasture land to graze in

    I was just giving you a hard time. The pics indicate that the cattle are not hurting for food.

    BTW, got a link for that GM dirt?
