This is National Ag Week; National Ag Day was March 25th. Your’s truly didn’t realize it was Ag Day. Many bloggers wrote a special Ag Day post; make sure you check out one of these stories:
One of my favorite things… healthy baby calves and those with milk on their face. The cows are just starting to calf. The last week we have been getting one or two new babies everyday.
A few plans for the rest of the week… Outside: Chores and checking cows. Inside: I might need to work on a little house cleaning and laundry.
A peek into my day… includes chores and keeping up with the Rancher. Wednesday we got our little electric fence project done in the morning and tackled cleaning the calving barn after dinner. It felt good to enjoy a balmy 43* day working outside.
With the cows in the calving pasture and having babies our schedule changes. At day break (6:00-6:30) J and I go out to tag calves born over night, then we come in to eat breakfast and head back out to chore. In the afternoon we will take out pairs and tag new babies. We check cows throughout the day and work on projects. After supper we head out at to check cows and tag again. Relax, rest and repeat!
The last couple days have been beautiful and sounds like the weekend will be in the upper 50’s maybe 60’s. I hope spring is on its way!
