Perfect fall day for moving cattle to fresh pasture. Our daily pasture moves extend the grazing season, improve grass and soil life, and make for happier cattle. #rotationalgrazing #highlandcattle #fallonthefarm #wisconsin

The cattle need to pretend they are giraffes this time of year as our sorghum sudan cover crop grows to over 8’ tall. This high quality forage helps put a nice finish on our steers and gets our calves off to a great start before their first winter. #grazing #covercrops #farm

Skye’s job is almost done for the summer! The bulls have been with the cow herd for the past 75 days. Next week we’ll move them to their own pasture to relax after a busy breeding season covering 36 cows and first calf heifers. In October, we’ll pregnancy check all the cows to see how well they did. 🤞🏼 #bulls #busyguy

While we love our cattle, our latest livestock venture is just as fun. This summer the kids and Farmer Keely have raised and released over 30 monarch butterflies! They found monarch eggs in the ditches, hayfields, and our backyard and raised the majority of them from eggs. There are a few more monarch caterpillars ready to form their chrysalises and turn into butterflies and then we’ll be done for the year as the butterflies migrate south for the winter.

Our kids have become experts at milkweed, spotting eggs, feeding their caterpillars and carefully releasing them. #monarchbutterfly #monarchcaterpillar #morelivestock

We rotate some annual pastures with our corn fields for @stonemansfamoussweetcorn. The goal is to use the cows to provide additional nutrients via grazing to benefit next years corn crop. Skye enjoys the head high sorghum sudan grass. #covercrops #grazing #sweetcorn #farming

“Are those Holsteins?” This question is a common one we’ve been getting recently because of the crazy coloring of this heifer. In fact, she’s half highland and half British White - another British breed that excels in pasture. She’s out on pasture with a full highland bull so we’re excited to see what her calf will be next spring. #knowyourfarmer #highlandcattle #britishwhitecattle #farmer #wisconsin

100 years ago today my grandfather was born. He was the perfect role model and instilled my love of farming. I often wonder what he would think of me farming now. The impact he had on my career and this community is profound. Even today, I still meet other farmers who sing his praises. We miss him dearly. Happy birthday in heaven, Grandpa!

Sometimes the best way to cool off on a hot day is to jump right into the stock tank like Highland Spring’s Abeline! This half highland and half angus cow sure makes us laugh even if she does cause the water to overflow. #swimmingpool #farmlife #summer #wisconsin

Silly boys. The bulls are out with the cow herd now as we begin our breeding season. The first calf heifers will be with the bulls for 45 days and then head out to a different pasture. We’ll check everyone for confirmed pregnancies later this fall. The rest of the herd will hang out with the bulls until Labor Day or so. #cattlefarm #wisconsin #madisonwi

It’s been an absurd 24 hours: 90 degree heat and multiple new calves. The first calf was overheating so we put a halter on momma, calf in the back of the truck with Anna and tied the halter to the hitch and slowly drove to the barn. Thank goodness for a cool, old dairy barn. Calf started nursing and life is good to go this morning. #thankgoodnessforAnna #farmhand #farmher #newborns #scottishhighlands #shorthorn #busyday #heat

Take a listen! Love how they just chomp that grass. If you look closely, you can see how she uses her tongue to grab the grass. Cows pull the grass with their tongue rather than bite the grass with their teeth. Crazy cool! #cows #quiet #chompchomp

Here we go! This week’s focus has been moving cattle to some summer pastures. The first 15 steers are ready to graze at the @wi_dnr grazing site at Hook Lake. For the past several years, we’ve partnered with @wi_dnr to use cattle to help manage some grasslands and reduce the pressure from invasive brush. Our cattle spend the summer there and then come home in early fall just in time for pheasant and deer seasons. #widnr #grasslands #regenerativeagriculture #pheasantsforever

Every day is moving day for our herd of highland cows! The little ones have figured it out already too. Daily pasture moves allow the cattle to eat the best grass and then allow time for the pasture to recover and grow back stronger. #rotationalgrazing #workingcattle #highlandcow #highlandcattle

Happy, happy Birthday, Kevin. Enjoy another fabulous trip around the sun.
Peyton got to pet a cow today! ❤️❤️
Finally ventured to Middleton last night to try Longtable’s “Community Burger” made with Highland Spring beef. The beef patty is incredibly fresh and savory, and topped with the best cheese, sauce and sausage🍔Bonus? One dollar of every burger goes straight to the Alzheimer's & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin These partnerships coming together definitely hit the #bullseye
Congratulations on your win as edible Madison's 2018 Local Hero Farm!
