This same environment benefits the numerous wildlife in a big way.
Certain birds only nest in fields, flocks of turkeys power graze all the bugs and sweet grasses, deer herds join the cows as they munch on clover and timothy.
Thousands of finches, bees, hummingbirds and butterflies invade the fields in search of weed seeds, flowers, milk weed, pollen and other tasty treats.
Hawks, owls and other sky predators hunt the mice, moles, rabbits and other rodents that make their homes in the fields. Fields are alive with all kinds of animals, many we can not see.
A farmer who is a good steward of the land is a good steward for wildlife too.
So the next time you see a content herd of cattle or a flock of sheep, think of all the wildlife that you don't see that are living in the same foot print of the healthy herd.
Don't forget all the wild flowers that live in cow fields too.
Here is my favorite one. Blooming all over the field in the last 2 days.
Name this flower.
And tell me what is going on in your field.....
