    Pint-Size Cattle

    The Tlach family of central Iowa owns a small herd of Miniature Hereford heifers in addition to their other herd of cross-bred cattle. These animals are naturally docile, usually weigh between 700 and 1,000 pounds, and typically stand less than 50 inches tall. The Miniature Hereford is a great starter calf for youngsters to show.

    The Iron River

    Last fall, I followed a company of antique tractors on a daylong ride over the various roads that connect the bridges of Madison Country, Iowa. One of the first stops was at Clark Tower in Winterset. All the riders paused for a short break to enjoy the scenery before heading out for a long and exciting day.
