Well I couldn't help myself with this shot. It was taken just before we moved the Dexters to their next pasture which is a fairly large meadow.
They will eat most things that the equine won't eat so we like to refer to them as the 'clean up crew'.
They do an excellent job at eating weeds and brush. If we cut the burdock and thistles, they gobble them up also.
Not only are they great pasture cleaners, they are very tasty for home raised beef.
Here the herd is moving through the electric gate and out into their next pasture to work on.
We have had to add extra lines much lower to the ground for these cattle but it has proven to be well worth it.
We are trying to practice good rotational grazing with them.
Next project, fencing the woods?
