Yesterday we loaded up the two maiden heifers (actually we hope former maiden heifers) to take back to David and Helen Stevenson near Nashua. They were looking good after a drenching, buffalo fly tags and a couple of months on lush grass.
David and Helen like us a few years ago are cow rookies and I must say they have really taken to it. They so remind us of us and its a privilege to share the skills and resources that we have blessed with. Looks like we have found a home for a couple more steers from Margrita Dexters–David has let us know he wants a Dexter in the freezer every four months this year.
Alison and I brought back their other Dexter Heifer we sold them a while back. It was good to see feisty Poppy again. Looks like she might be in season now so Lowco will be happy for a new dance partner.
