    Hi Kathy, I often think of your articles, teach live stock to eat weeds, when walking through the pasture. I am lucky that our cows often choose to eat what I consildered weeds while row cropping when moved to new slice of grass. They are dexter cross and do spend a lot of time teaching young what to eat, when they are not busy running and bouncing. I greatly appreciate what you and your contributors have taught me in a few short years. Jolly rancher used to be a candy enjoyed by all, now jolly rancher is a description of our life with cows.
    Thank you again, George
