The cows here are wintered on a corn field in Southwestern Wisconsin.  Cows grazed the cornstalks in the fall and then bunks are used to feed the cows a ration during the winter.  The cows in this picture have access to a wooded area to use as windbreak during the winter.  Beef cattle do not require shelter in the winter, if a windbreak or wind protection is provided.
