We need to put a well in this fall, so we need to sell some heifers to fund the well!   I really planned on keeping all these girls, but we only need 16-17 and we have 23.  So a few can go.

This well will be running waterers to all the back pastures, so we can utilize them better.  Right now we can't use them at all.  Its too far back to the waterers to make the cows walk each time they get thirsty.  Too far in this heat.

We are supposed to get a cooler spell next week.:)

Do you plan to use the well to irrigate the pasture? Do you irrigate at all?
Do the back pastures still have grass in this extended dry spell?
Wish you better weather soon.

Hi George,
We do not usually irrigate, usually have no need as it is only dry for a short time. This year has been different. We would probably not use the well to irrigate unless in dire need. Between watering all the cows in all the pastures, supplying two houses, two barns and a shop, the well will probably be well used as it is.
The back pastures haven't been pastured since June and they are brown and crispy. So no, no grass to speak of. Hoping for fall rains to get the grasses and alfalfa/clovers growing before it gets too cold.
It is cooler now, but still dry.
Oh, sold the heifers, so I am really hoping to get this well dug soon!
