This year we have rented a pasture from a nearby organic farmer. This pasture has not been grazed for about ten years, so we had to cut a lot of trees and brush out of the fence and fix the fence before we could move animals there. The milking herd has to be within walking distance of the milking parlor, so we moved some heifers and dry cows (cows that are not being milked toward the end of their pregnancy).
After the first night, three of the youngest heifers had escaped. After a stay in the farmer's barn for the afternoon while I repaired the fence, we got them back to the pasture. They have all stayed in since then. We check on them every day, and are using temporary fence to move them to a new area within this pasture about every five days.
We have also had three new calves!

Cheers for now!
