The last paddock on the farm

It is late summer and we’re running out of fresh grass. The green area in the middle distance is Nebraska, named after the corn field that was there when we moved in. It has been in lucerne since spring and is now ready to graze. It is the last paddock on the farm that the cows can graze. Otto helped me fence it and earned two Euros.

Still, it is eight hectares of mid-height lucerne which should keep them going for a couple of weeks and if we get some rain in that time the other lucerne paddocks will grow and we can go around again.

There’s an new mixed grass paddock in the foreground but it isn’t fenced and won’t be until we get significant rain. It needs a mow once the heat dies down.
