November–from fall to winter

27 Nov

Battle Mountain from Brown's Hill

November is a month of transition. We ship the calves and start moving the cows and the ewes to their wintering grounds. The lambs are on feed, and the calves are either sold, or selected as replacements and on winter feed. The cows are pregnancy tested and their fate determined. It’s a lot to be thankful for when fall segues into winter and we settle in for the long months of quiet and cold.
