    I have a friend that lives near Pueblo Colorado that raises corriente cattle. That area is experiencing a bad drought and he is out of water and grass. He sent me 420 of his cows this weekend to keep until spring. His only other option was to sell off most of them if not all. Pretty depressing to work hard for several years raising a cow herd only to have to liquidate due to drought or fire. Hoping spring brings them rain and grass. If not at least I'm able to give him 5 or 6 months to figure out what he can do. Pretty smart little cows that don't handle too bad. 20200920_141014.jpg 20200920_141338.jpg 20200901_113533.jpg 20200901_113051.jpg

    Your a nice guy!

    Farmer helping farmer is the American way. We wouldn't have made it through some hard times if we didn't stick together.
    I remember helping out our neighbors and them helping us.

    How did you transport 420 head of cattle? Semi’s or a bunch of trips with a livestock trailer?

    Several cattle pots to haul that many.

    Hay should be cheap this year in OK, there's a ton of it around. I'm about tired of hay lol. Glad to be planting wheat now.

    That’s a tough area to find water even when it ain’t an official drought. Glad you could help him.

    Is that a mexico breed? Seems like many of the rodeo steers have some of that breed in them.
