Bringing Home the Herd

Above:  Can you see the dust on the horizon? There is no car coming down this road today!

Above:  Cattleman Jim is herding some of the cattle home. 
Above:  They have been enjoying the beautiful November with a chance to dine on stubble fields. Cattleman Jim puts up a temporary electric fence around the fields to be grazed.
Above:  The lead cows know the way home and the rest follow along. We know that winter will settle in soon. It never fails.
Above:  We use a four-wheeler, pickup trucks, and no horses. 
Above:  The bulls are peacefully grazing while we hear the cows fretting in the distance. The calves are being weaned and it causes a ruckus. Things will settle down in a day or two.
