Potatoes Planted

You might wonder what potatoes have to do with beef cows?  

For one thing this potato patch is part of their view from the pasture.  It also becomes part of their diet when there is a surplus of potatoes or there are some culls to get rid of.  These spuds are entirely organic with fish bone meal the only fertilizer.  Note the drip irrigation tapes hanging out from each row.  They will be hooked up to a tank of warm water when there is no rain.
