mowing it down

These days the cattle waste no time mowing the paddocks down to nothing. As they move to new spots they take the growth down to a nice tight clip. 

After about 3 weeks with little to no rain and plenty of heat the grass was starting to wilt. A little bit of rain and boom! Grass jumping up and growing all over! 

Plenty left for them to mow. Months more to go. The extended summer means extra growth from the grass, and extra eats for the herd. 

They have not been in the front yard for more than a month. It's looking quite shaggy, as they move around now the farm begins to wear a better look of short grass rather than the high growing stuff out there right now. The grass stays like that until spring rains when it all jumps up again!
