Cattle are Content

Have you noticed how content cattle are in their pastures as you pass by? 
Noses down, enjoying the forage they find there, there are no audible complaints. 
Discontent in the cattle herd comes from outside sources. Something can spook them, a coyote or other interloper, perhaps. But today all is calm and all is well.
I, with my camera, raise a few heads. It is just curiosity and not alarm. 
Watching a herd of cattle, especially in the Fall is a peaceful interlude.  
Although they are still caring for calves, experience has made them calm.  
 There are a couple waiting expectantly at the gate, as if something big is about to happen.
Pastures have held up surprisingly well this Fall with our ample moisture. 
But even the old cows know that the taste of green is a passing pleasure in GriggsDakota.
