It’s time for five things from my week; how did Thursday sneak up on me so fast … again? Here are a couple of shots I snapped of the yearlings during chores last week.
1. Easter Sunday morning we moved the cows to the “Bull Pasture.” We have never calved out of this pasture before; so far it’s working good. After the cows calf we kick the pairs through one gate to the “Windmill Pasture.” The “Bull Pasture” is bigger than the calving pasture and has lots of old grass to nestle a baby down into.
2. Monday afternoon the last heifer had her baby. We are closing in on half done calving.
3. Tuesday morning we had a little moisture. Wednesday we woke up to heavy fog. Most of the day was misty; by evening we had light rain/ice mix. We are dry and will take any moisture we can get.
5. Calving season is a one of our two most busy times of the year. In addition to caring for cattle we have a little farming to do. J’s Dad works the ground and J comes behind with the seeder. We planted hay-bet barley and oats for hay this week. One good thing about having a little bit of farming is it doesn’t take much time to plant. The crop is in!
What has been the highlight of your week?
