It’s a beautiful day here with the wind finally down and the sun shining. The moisture has gotten the grass trying to green up and it sounds like there’s a chance of some more rain coming. I’ve heard of some folks having cows going down to grass tetany on the very sparse green grass, so bet that magnesium in front of them somehow.
