It’s like this, grasshopper

The way of grass
I thought it was very important for Steph to have at least one excursion through the paddocks with Brent to get a detailed breakdown* of the soil condition, and the various types of herbiage being raised to feed the cattle here. It’s been a busy week for him, concluding with another milestone beef-sale day today. As word about the availability of grass-feed beef spreads ever further, I’m seeing buyers arriving from as far off as Bordeaux. It’s hard to believe that’s it’s only been three months since the first of these.

* I just have a detailed breakdown; I can’t remember anything about what he’s said about the grass.
And that blade is called Godfrey, and that's Grover, and ...
By the time the last of the buyers had left, there was only a half hour left for Brent’s masterclass in field fodder, but with these brilliant autumnal sunsets running at the same time, you can’t complain about the classroom setting.
Brent, Steph, Gustav
