An Old Form of Power
Emma, Fern and Galadryal are Scotch Highland Devon-Angus cattle. Born March 2020, they are learning how to use a yoke, pull a cultivator and generally drag me around. With their assistance, MTT will become an oxen-powered farm, reducing our fossil fuel use while sharing the load. With rotational grazing methods, these ladies and their family also provide fertilizer, sequester carbon and reduce invasive species populations. It is a joy to see them basking in the sun as baby killdeer skitter by.
