Ides of April

Some wildflowers fared better than others through our five-day, 3.21″ rain. But just too beautiful not to forge the muddy creek in the Kubota (with my camera) to open a couple of gates and let our first-calf heifers into the feed we’ve saved along the creek, a couple of weeks before we gather to process their Wagyu calves and to ship a couple of weeks after that. Extremely strong feed, but another reason I believe that Filaree is so admired by cattlemen is that it thrives on adversity. Quite a year for filaree!
