Tongue Lickin’ Good!

After the storm this evening I rode with Gene to put Wind & Rain mineral out to the cows.  We pulled up to the gate and Gene revves the motor on the truck. That is his “call” to the cows. Instantly dozens of ears come up, mouths full of grass look towards the gate and across the field they come in a run.

We went to another field and the brood cows with their calves were all standing at the bottom of the hill in a corner. Again he revved the motor and they came running.

Is this the same as “finger lickin’ good’????

They would bury their noses in the mineral and then lick it off their noses.

This poor little calf got his face at the wrong spot at the wrong time. Yes, that is fresh manure all over his face!  His mama will probably lick him off later.

    It looks like you all have quite a few head of cattle. How many do you have? That looks like a pretty farm. Is it there in Powhatan?

      400 and yes, they are here in Powhatan.
