them. This bird is very quiet, and
the male ate grapes from Rose
ann’s hand. Breeders have to be
careful that they do not domesti
cate the birds and get so attached
that the birds get the “human
imprint” and will not breed.
The Reeves pheasant was a
beautiful streak of color and hard
to photograph. It has the longest
tail of any pheasant. One of the
interesting collection of rare hens
was the one named Mille Fleur
(French for “one thousand flow
ers”). Also in the collection was an
English Crele and a Silver Sebright.

Both Don and Roseann work
away from home full-time, and so
they must spend many of their off
hours taking care of the birds.
They expressed gratitude to
Don’s parents, John and Martha
Woodward, for their help. Martha

with other cleaning and health
Don speaks with pride about
his parents’ farm to which his and
Roseanne’s home is adjacent. His
father, John, is at least the fourth
generation of Woodwards on the
farm, where they remain semi
active. Last year they raised 35
head of Holstein that were sent
overseas for breeding purposes.

Not All Fields Are Perfectly Flat
That’s why the Bush Hog® model 2615 15-foot cutter's wings are designed to float
along contours as severe as 90 degrees up or 22 degrees down while shredding
stalks, clipping pastures or cutting along rights-of-ways, drainage ditches, terraces
and fence rows. As it does so, an automatic height adjustment keeps the wings cutting
at the same height as the center section. A framing system featuring closed box
members allows us to make the 2615 pounds lighter without sacrificing any of the
strength you’ve come to expect from a Bush Hog. And, less weight not only means
less wear and tear on your tractor but it has also allowed us to cut the price.
