Life on the ranch always changes. It changes with the seasons. It changes insomuch as how we decide to do things. And how we decide to do things changes as we learn more, and have the need to do something different. In the world of ranching and agriculture, you can’t be rigid. You’ve got to do what’s best for your animals and the land at all times. We’ve seen what’s called “bale grazing” used and we thought this week would be a good chance to see if it doesn’t make for happier cows. I am the first to tell you that so far it’s been awesome.

I took this video Sunday Morning when Zach and I did chores around the house. This video is about 7 minutes long, but you get to see how much snow there is, and kinda how things look in winter around here, and what’s required to do chores.
I also took a few photos of the cows this morning while I was unwrapping bales:
If this cow looks familiar, it’s because she is Oreo’s daughter. Oreo belongs to Zach’s beautiful daughter, Kelsey. I think she thought I had cake with me or something!
And that my friends, is another day in the life of the South Dakota Cowgirl.
