To market, to market

The local cattle sale this week had us sell three head.

We had a good cow, who had a good heifer, but without a bull it would be easier for us to not have breeding stock to consider.  The steer went because he was big enough, we still have a couple of wethers running about so we didn't need meat and it is easier to justify the cost of transport if you sell more.

We only have one steer left now that was a bit small to sell (or eat).  He seems to have settled in well enough without his friends so touch wood he is happy to hang around without becoming a pain.  So far so good.

Autumn Update

I love Autumn.  We will see the leaves start to drop soon.
