Hi Y'all, Well, things are moving along, out here on Hummingbird Hill. But it looks like it'll be Spring before I can get things together to get me a couple or three bred Heifers & a feeder-calf to feed out. I'll have fence up by then. Now, How much "Barn" am I going to need for Galloway cattle? I know they are s'posed to be hardier than most of the other Breeds. Angus are also s'posed to be pretty hardy too, though. We're talking about both breeds. Would a three-sided shed type shelter, facing Southwest be enough? With maybe covered storage, at the end for hay? Maybe a 24'x36', 3-side, on a slab? We live in SW Indiana.They say Zone 5, but feels like zone 6 to me. Would we have to have a separate shelter set aside, for calving? I have to have an idea how much dollars I'm going to have laid-by to get it done. It might be a moot point by Spring, though. DSW is lobbying for a horse to ride around on, for which we would need a "real barn". I keep telling her an ATV would be more fun, and you don't have to clean up after them. Gasoline is easier to buy & store than hay. But, I can tell she's getting her heart & her head, set on horses too. So I know where it's going. Need a old draft horse, to carry my 250#, hunnh. I AM going to have me some beef cows though!
