Pasture Mops

Vermont has a secret for drying up soggy pastures. With all the snow and spring rains, there is a definite need to soak up the excess water for planting and grazing. Smart dairy farmers long have known that sheep had to be good for something besides converting feed into fertilizer. Then they run them down to the creek and wring them out by hand; this has a double benefit. The moisture is out of the pastures and fields and the lanolin in the wool keeps the farmers’ hands soft and good looking.DSC00120Leicester Whiting Road, Leicester, Vermont 01/20/2006

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
