    Great shot of our dear old Missouri Angus. Just like mine at home - content with all the grass they can eat.

    Thanks for putting this up as Creative Commons license - I used this for a new blog I'm just starting, with a post about Missouri grass fed beef cattle.

    If you've got more of these, I have tons of blog posts to use them in my beef cattle blogs - looks like I'm just going to have to make some time to go through the rest of your photos!
