Lean-to comes in handy in very wet weather

do share

 Pictured above are the three cattle we are planning to take to the North American Livestock Show in two weeks.  WE had 3 plus inches of rain Thursday/Friday.  Boy, did the new lean-to we put on the barn come in handy for them.  A place to be out of the rain, dry and not wet under their feet.  We had close to 7 inches of rain in the month of October.  WE have been feeding them in there and tying them up under the roof.  Sure does make it easier on us also.
Final thoughts, this week we also starting to move/ship some of Terry Steinhour’s cattle.  Feeder cattle and finished cattle went to Congerville sale barn and we sent about half the cows/calves/bulls to a friend/fellow shorthorn breeder of Terry’s.  Hopefully this week he will come and get the rest of them.  WE need to take one bull to Congerville this week on Tuesday night. Lifetime building a purebred herd and we will move them to someone else in a few days.  Next up, getting his crops out of the fields.  Lots of neighbors will help with that.
