Winter Feeder

Today or tomorrow we should finish the new corral for the cows to feed, drink and hang out behind wind breaks when they don't want to be scouring grass from the wind-swept fields.  We poured the base for the frost-free water fountain and the feed troughs and have to finish stacking the 60 foot cottonwood logs around the perimeter.

Past and Present

One pleasant surprise this meat season was to meet the Trim Family.  Turns out that  Mrs. Trim's father George used to fly me around Colombia forty years ago.  They maintain a ranch and cattle in Texas so were glad to find local beef when they got to Alaska.  Yesterday and today we process over 5000 pounds of beef.
