LIVESTOCK
Excess pasture production is harvested. The wrapping helps shed the water. Dave sees farmers putting bales on the north side of a tree line in the shade, which he says is no good. He elevates his bales to keep them from the ground moisture. Dave prefers the bales run north and south and are flush with one another to reduce exposure. The location where the bales are held used to be a cattle feeding floor. In the winter, portable feed troughs are used. They will be lined up in rows, on top of limestone. Buffaloes in the wild would graze on one parcel of land then move to another and another. Cattle are now being herded in the same ways. It means they have to build a lot of fences. They use high tensile fences with a current through it from solar power. Dave thinks his practices are very environmentally friendly.
