The good news is we received 2.39 inches of much needed rain mid-June. The grass is growing fast and means we won't be feeding any more hay. We had already fed three round bales the first part of June to supplement the meager grass.
Hopefully we will get more rain this month and later. The goal is always to make it through to the first freeze before we feed our home-grown hay.
The not-so-good news, at least if you're in the mood for a delicious steak or a grass-fed hamburger, is that we've sold out of beef for the season. Our spring calves will be ready for market in November 2011 and later. I'll start taking orders in October 2011.
