Flint Hills

The Kansas Flint Hills, formed by the erosion of Permian-age limestones and shales, extend from Marshall County, in the north, to Cowley County, in the south, and are known as the Osage Hills in Oklahoma. Named for the embedded bands of chert, or flint, the Flint Hills region is one of the last great preserves of tallgrass prairie in the country. —Kansas Geological Survey

These calves have been on fall pasture on a large Flint Hills ranch for about two months. They also receive supplemental feedings of hay and pellets. The calves must have thought my Jeep was the feed truck, and headed my way. Southeast of Cassoday in Butler County, Kansas. November 14, 2007.
