Hill’s OneChanceFancy (Fancy) heifer growing nice. Looking like we may have a calf soon and a nice genetic foundation. I’m excited about the future of The Rafter H! Finally seeing the fruits of our labor as a family start to produce.
“We are all called to be stewards of the land and stewards we shall be”
Been a busy few days but we got it done!
Been fighting the weather but it’s coming along nicely. Four rail creosote boards and field fence. This one is going to be nice when finished!
So proud of this guy and Cracker Jack’s big day!
Cohen Hill of Etowah County exhibited the Grand Champion Alabama Born and Bred Market Lamb during the Alabama National Fair Youth Sheep Market Show. He is pictured with his family and show judge Terry Burks of Bowling Green, Kentucky.

And then there was a pig!
Good help is hard to find!
We thank God for family and black angus cows!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
I LOVE walking around the yard barefoot...but these little stickers steal my joy! Maybe if I post it enough Leland Hill will spray our yard🤷🏼♀️😘
Just a reminder for people with a spurw**d problem. Now is the time of year to treat your yard with a post-emergent herbicide.
Spurw**d, aka stickers or burw**d, is a winter annual w**d that germinates in the fall and winter months, particularly in areas where turf is thin or patchy. During the winter, spurw**d remains small and low-growing where it usually goes unnoticed until the plant matures.
In late winter, spurw**d blooms are tiny white flowers. In the spring when temperatures rise, the pollinated flowers begin to set fruit. The fruiting structures appear as small rosette buttons and develop in the leaf axils. As the fruit matures in mid to late spring, the seed in the fruiting structures develop spines, and when the fruit becomes dry, the spines become very sharp. These sharp spines are what make the lawn spurw**d so undesirable.
For homeowners, the best option to control spurw**d is a post-emergence application of one of the various two and three-way mixes of 2,4-D, dicamba and MCPP. Trimec is one of the most common trade names in this category. These products can be used on tall fescue, fall over seeded bermudagrass in which the over seeded cool-season grass has been mowed four to five times and non-over seeded bermudagrass.
Always read the label before purchasing any herbicide to make sure the specific formulation and percentage of chemical that you choose is appropriate for your lawn. Follow mixing and sprayer instructions to ensure effective control and proper use of the herbicide.
For more information about spurw**d identification and control visit our webpage, https://www.uaex.edu/yard-garden/lawns/spurw**d-control.aspx or contact your county office https://www.uaex.edu/counties/default.aspx
The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture Research & Extension does not endorse specific herbicide brands.
True story! Cows gotta eat and we’re currently utilizing the GMC Terrain mom mobile. Gotta do what you gotta do.
Urban cowboy! 🤠
I missed my best ranchin’ buddy while he was in Mississippi this week. Sadie isn’t too thrilled he’s back.
Been a good, long weekend for the Hills’. Started early Saturday with a lamb show, then a win for our bulldogs and wrapped it up Monday night at the fair with another lamb show. Doesn’t get any better than this! Even little Miss Clara Bea thinks she’s ready!
A custom wedding altar made to order! We do so much more than ‘just ranch’ at the Rafter H and continuing to grow each day.
Thank you to the bride and groom for allowing Hill Farms to play a small, small role in their day to always remember. It truly was a pleasure!
Where there was four, there was many. Hill Farms has reached an amazing milestone and now has more than quadrupled from where we started. It’s amazing how quickly things can grow with just a little bit of effort and time. Counting our blessings daily! 🤠
First lamb show down!
We learned the difference between rodeo cowboys and ranchin’ cowboys. Cohen says “We’re the ranchin’ cowboys daddy!” and we got to meet Bo**er Brown. I’d say it was a success! 🤠
Hill Farms show season/life has officially started. Been waiting on this a long time with it being my boy’s first year of many, if we’re lucky. Passing on our love of agriculture to our next generation and hope they share the same passion for a lifetime. If not, atleast making memories to take with them forever!
The other women in my life, who take the rest of my money!
When you drive through farm land and your 3 year old correctly identifies corn, cotton and soybean plants from the back seat and all on his own!
That’s a proud AgDad moment. Not sure it could get any better!
Not a bad view from the office!
Always better with cows around! 🤠
