It’s nearly time for turnout!
This month our members have been busy relocating animals from their winterto fresh spring grasses
throughout Washington State. Sometimes this means several days haulingby truck and trailer, or just monitoring the pastures on the home place before closing the gate on the winter feeding yard.
Familybenefit Washington in numerous ways. In addition to creating revenue for rural economies, cattle also make use of a renewable resource (grass) while creating a beneficial product (protein). Cattle grazing also helps to reduce the fuel loads for forest fires by reducing grasses and underbrush, which also keeps areas open for wildlife.
