This qualifies as fine dining. It may not look it to we humans. But 34 cows discovered that the grass really is greener on the other side of the road. (Or, in this case, the volunteer wheat is greener.)
The cows spent most of the summer at the Rattlesnake Pasture before the drought-stressed grasses forced us to move them home two months early. Since then, they had been in a dusty corral eating year-old baled CRP grass, with a little silage for dessert.
But as the volunteer wheat emerged, the guys fenced off the field.
And the cows arrived for a little fine dining.
Randy thinks they look happy. And since they've stayed within the confines of the electric fence, I'll take his word for it.
