A Barnyard Badlands

This barnyard was across the road from a property where I was setting up a timber sale.  It has had too many cattle on it for too long.

I’m reading a fascinating book about soil erosion in Driftless called Historic Agriculture and Soil Erosion in the Upper Mississippi Hill County.  It reads a bit like a text-book in places, but the information, figures and photos are remarkable.
