You know Spring is near when the Texas Longhorn cows come out of the brush and start working their way toward the calving pastures.  The cold Ohio snows and blizzards are soon coming to an end.  Happy times are near!!!

Although the Ohio Animal Care Board may want all livestock animals to have barns, warm pads to sleep on, clean organic feed, and comfortable living areas, here Dickinson Cattle Co may be subject to fines, penalties or imprisonment due to age old cattle handling methods in use. Even though cattle are well fed daily and have pure spring water, winters are very cold and snowy. The snow is over 8 feet deep in some cattle pastures, in ditches and ravines. Being a popular free range, grass fed critter is not a perfect life.

Ranch manager Joel Dickinson identifies a stressing problem. It appears there is an environmental care problem. It looks like the Texas Longhorn cow is totally exausted.

Just when a cow is at her wits-end, the last thing needed is for a ranch kid to jump on and want a ride. She needs pulled out of the deep snow and taken to a warm relaxing place, absolutely not made sport of!

Cows don't have tow straps, bumpers or skis. They are heavy! They are not easy to pull out of the snow. A fork lift would be handy!

Good things can happen!  Now back to the Longhorn Store at Longhorns Head to Tail.  High on the wall in a warm spot with a clear view of the front door.
