The cattle thread in Coffee Shop Posted February 8 4 minutes ago, Bdse25 said: 700 cows. Damn. So out there can you guys crow corn and beans or is it to dry. Do you just make hay on rangeland or do you have some actual fields, might seem like stupid questions but I’m from an area where we have 70 inches of rain and we farm around houses and people everywhere. You guys are really blessed to live in such a wide open area with such beautiful views. I'm back in the hills of Missouri now but I lived in northeast Nebraska for awhile. We pastured most of the 1000 pairs 1-2 hours west of the main farm and feedlot in the edge of the sandhills. Brought them home in the fall and to the calving pastures in February. Then out to pasture when calving was done. Raised corn soybeans and hay back on the home place. Mostly all center pivot irrigated. Weaned calves and fattened our own and bought calves for our 1000 head feedyard. Feedyard was one of my responsibilities as I lived there. That's how things were done there. Around where I live now in this area of Missouri pastures and hay ground are mixed with woods and are considerably smaller patches but it is definitely cattle country just a different way than Nebraska.
