Cattle on the feed line, watching as the feed truck brings in a second load.


This type of weather in much more normal for this time of year than the other picture I posted.
Hope this all works, Gwyn posted the picture last night of the damsnowcows! And she showed me how to post one, we'll see if I get it right!

Feed lines have been a big thing for the past 12 months or more here in Australia as we go through a big drought again.
As we head into Winter there's bugger all feed around in a lot of places and there's been a lot of farmers that have basically just walked off their family owned farms that have been in the family for generations as they can't repay debts because of loss of income.

Sorry for the off thread post but Australia has had droughts in the last 20 years that have gone for 2-3 years at a time.


That is a different picture with snow in the mountains and sunshine and cattle coming in to feed.......................can't beat a rural scene it's somehow relaxing.

Dean; what breed of cattle are you raising. Just wondering they look similar to ours, Black Angus and Salers cross most of them, but we don't calve until late April and May because of the weather in this part of the world. i know all to well about cold, wet weather and the calves with pneumoni. there to valuable to lose and you don't have to lose to many to knock the profit margin all to hell.

Charlie, we live about 150 miles from Colo. Springs. South and west. Not far from the Great Sand Dunes. Would be nice to get together.
T2Feathers, we have mostly limousine cattle, red and some black. May be some angus cross mixed in. Have been using some Hereford bulls also, the cross bred calves just do better. But we have to be careful with our altitude here with angus and Hereford, as they have brisket problems which you folks in low altitude don't have to worry about. Thanks for asking.
GOD BLESS. Dean
