On our way home................

 We took Hwy 34 all the way home from the Hills. The first stop was Man Heaven!!
Cammack Supply in Union Center. A rancher dream everything he would need.
Railroad ties for fencing, corral panels rows and rows of them.

Some call these auto gate I call them cattle guards. They are buried in the ground in the opening to your pasture a pickup can drive over it but the cows can't  walk over it.
Portable cattle working equipment.
Bale feeders and so much more. We didn't stop in at the store maybe next time.
Before we left Union Center we visited Richard and Steve Harwood. They used to come to our place and a couple of our other neighbors places to hunt pheasants. Then our guys would go out there to hunt deer. It has been a friendship that has lasted decades.
Rolling hill almost all the way home. The best part was hardly any traffic

It seemed like we saw more cattle on the way out and back than we have seen other years.

Heifer time:)

Calving has gone good this winter unless you add up the lost hours of sleep!

Another purse.

I used the side of a blue jean leg for the side of this purse.
Then I used some farmer fabric for the inside of it...........JMF

We drove home from Rapid City today too - but no rolling hills views or stops along the way. Dave was driving so the cruise control was set at 80 all the way. Your views were much better.

Very pretty drive. I used to live just off Hwy 34 north of Billsburg at Milesville, so I'm very familiar with that area. Thanks for the pretty pictures.

Are y'all about done calving heifers?
I've never heard then called auto gates.
Ya'll drove through pretty country. Have you had a cold winter? We only had the one huge storm and haven't had much cold. In fact, they are forecasting 90 degrees for today. Ick!
