The Cows Are Back on Breakneck Hill

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

The Belted Galloway (and occasional Milking Devon) herd made their way across to the Breakneck Hill Conservation land today.  The herd is smaller (and possibly less musically inclined) than in past years, but for today it was nice to see the herd as excited as ever to get back to their summer home.

Stop by and visit the Belties on Breakneck Hill Road sometime.  They are one of many attractions on this beautiful piece of land.

Cows to Move Today (Sunday)

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Due to popular demand (as voiced both by cow fans and the belties themselves) the belties will be making their annual move to the pasture today (Sunday, May 17) at about 4 pm.  This is the latest they’ve ever made the move.  Hopefully, we will get some rain in the near future to support the further growth of forage on the fields.  Please drop by to welcome them to their summer home.

Update: Cows Will NOT Move to Pasture this Sunday, Mother’s Day at 4PM

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Update: We have decided to delay the move to let the grass recover a bit more from our record-setting winter, so there will be no move today.  We’ll keep you posted as to when the move will occur.

We need at least 10 inches of grass in order to start the rotation so we will sacrifice one paddock while we feed them hay. The winter paddock needs to be cleaned out and reseeded. A portion has already been put into barley.
