Where I live in rural Northern Ontario, Canada, beef farming is a big deal. Manitoulin Island has many small beef producing operations, and just about every full time Islander has at least a little experience doing farm work. Even though I'm not a farmer, I occasionally get involved in this sort of work. My dad, Steve, rents out his pasture to a beef farming friend to feed and house his cattle. Dad went on a trip recently, and asked me to keep the herd fed. Here's a video of the process.
