We live in a open range state and certain times if the year there are cows here roaming free. We don’t mind if the cows come in the yard because their manure is useful. This last time a cow unfortunately did some damage to our fence around our growing area/upper garden area so that will have to be fixed soon. We could close our gate to keep them off our property but it happened at night or early morning so we didn’t even see them. You’d be surprised what has showed up in our yard besides cows-Havelina, donkeys, skunks, dogs, cats, black rabbit and snowball our white duck. That said we wouldn’t change anything because we love this part of Arizona.
