Good morning! Let’s talk a little about feed! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our feeding season usually starts about October and ends around March. How much we feed our livestock depends on the year and how dry it has been! We feed a 20 or 28% protein cube. We also have them on a year-round mineral program. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The South Texas area is much more green than Eastern New Mexico, so I was surprised when Kent informed me that they have had a “dry” year. Especially with the humidity they tend to have down there. Something I’ve been learning consistently about is the different types of climates and how they affect livestock. Every rancher has a different process because they have to. No piece of land is the same. I also found out that cows love prickly pear, which isn’t surprising because I love a good prickly pear margarita myself. 😉😋 – @madimccall_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #MDITA #texasagriculturematters #igtexas #womeninag #agdaily #madimccall #cattletales

It's not down on any map, true places never are. –Herman Melville _____________________ Sunsets at My Spot series 1 of 3. _____________________ Sometimes, when your short on time but dying to get a few shots, you go to that one place that you know will deliver almost every time. This spot is mine. I can usually guarantee a great shot and it's just close enough to home that if I can't find a new spot, I've got easy access to this one. I'd love to know: do you have a go-to location or do you try not to hit the same places too often? _____________________ #country_features #countryroads #rsa_country #country_vibe #agdaily @iowa_agriculture @agriculture_worldwide @usa_agriculture #ruralexposures #ptk_rural #trb_rural #rsa_rural #wildruralcollective #backroad_visions #takeabackroad #graveltravel #sunsetsniper #sunsetmadness #epicsunset #sunset_vision #gameoftones #thisisiowa #myiowa #highlightiowa #exploreiowa #iowagrams #aroundiowa #onlyiniowa @capture_iowa @515grammers @iowatography_ig #ig_iowa #nocoastcollective #hey_ihadtosnapthat #midwest_captures @midwestlivingmag #goandcapturethelight

We redheads get along just fine it’s like we are part of a club or something 😉 • • One of the main questions I get asked is how come we don’t have more breeds than #Holstein on our farm? Well, if I had it my way I’d have a lot more redheads! But in reality, our farm isn’t built for the smaller dairy breeds like jerseys, ayrshires or other various breeds. • • The freestalls in our barn are larger so all manure is in the lane instead of the beds if a cow is laying down while she poops. Our parlor is much easier on the workers if the cow is large enough to not move around while putting the machine on. • • Our farm runs on safety and efficiency. But I’m for sure asking for some red Holsteins anytime I get the chance!
