The big black cattle have been loaded up and taken to the farmer's barn, that means winter is near. In the Spring a farmer brings a herd of cattle to some fields down the road. They just roam around eating the grass.
Hey, I am a city slicker, I don't know what breed they are or if they are boys or girls. I just think they are boys, cause no milking takes place . :):) I like to see them when they are walking in single file to get to the water (ditch). From our porch we can see them on that narrow strip of land by the ditch. Seems their heads are always down, so they look like big boulders. Ted and I took the golf cart down the road so I could get these pictures last week. As you can see I haven't been anywhere to take more photos. Hope you enjoy your day.
I LOVE to see cattle on pasture! Around here, we still have some cattle on pasture, but many are in huge mega dairies, indoors all the time. And yes, when they leave the pasture, it's a pretty good sign that winter is near. :-(ReplyDelete
I wouldn't know one cow from another either. I guess winter is really coming if they are being put in the barn. Glad you got your pictures before they disappeared.ReplyDelete
honey they are black ones. now you know!ReplyDelete
Very peaceful and pretty pics, Susie. Looks like winter is coming, ready or not!ReplyDelete
Hope you have a nice day.
If they are black, I think they'd be called Black Angus. At least, that's as far as my knowledge of cows goes.:-) The farmer probably raises them to see to the market for beef. xo NellieReplyDelete
I guess I'm a city slicker, too! I couldn't tell you what breed or gender, but they're very photogenic, aren't they. Lovely photos.ReplyDelete
Hi Susie, My brother still lives on the family farm. There is several different kinds of cattle depending on what they are raising them for. Those look like a black angus in your picture. Fall is officially here and I can't wait for the really hard freeze that is supposedly coming. It will help the allergies. I always enjoy your pictures. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.ReplyDelete
The pictures are great Susie. I miss being close to the country. At the end of my street at my old home was a big cornfield.ReplyDelete

Those look like Black Angus to me and they are beef cattle. We always raised one a year for meat for the winter- xo Diana
