Though this winter season has been up and down, waking up to 30 degree weather and leaving school in the 60’s, the season at C3 is a season of growth. One evening last week I had the chance to feed and water alone before mom and dad came home and while I sat in the Kubota watching an assortment of red, white, and black cattle eating I noticed just how much the herd has changed. A few short weeks ago our new born babies were stumbling as they walked and now they’re running at full speed chasing after the donkeys in the pasture. Let another couple weeks go by and they will be too big to run under fences or in between the legs of their mothers. As cattle grow, the sun rises and sets, hay is ate and the cats lay in bales of straw I am reminded of just how important it is to cherish the little things I notice on the ranch before my time runs out and college consumes my schedule. As I breathe in the holiday spirit and smell of cattle I am growing ever thankful that C3 is in a season of love, advancements, and Christmas Cheer. Best wishes for the holiday season from our family cattle co. to yours.
