Sheep standing in shade on hillside

During hot sunny days silvopastures contribute to animal comfort so they graze and gain weight when they would otherwise stand around and pant.  These trees are part of a paddock with black walnut rows oriented north-south so the shade moves across alleys during the day.  The picture was taken at VA Tech and is of a joint project between AFSRC and VA Tech.
