Flying Grazers

One would assume that cattle on the hilltop, noses to the ground as they enjoy the fresh grass, is a common Summertime sight in GriggsDakota. 
More common than cattle in the pasture, are wild geese grazing on fields. Geese do real damage to crops during the growing season.
This time of year, the hatched young have joined the flocks and the numbers are bigger than ever. 
We are glad to have our crops off the barley and wheat fields. The geese are munching on sprouted grain in the stubble field.
Who provides food for wildlife? Farmers, of course!
