Well, for a little GOOD news!
We have been having wonderful cooler weather and RAIN! Everything has greened back up nicely and we have been able to stop feeding hay and allow the cows to graze again.
We are only milking 20 cows at the moment as the rest are dry, preparing to calve. So if we are forced into a downtime, its a good time for it I guess. Thanks everyone for hanging in there with us.
The calving started yesterday as #56 (a very good little crossbred cow), gave us a beautiful little heifer calf. Very spunky little thing! #56 had a heifer in 2008 who is herself preparing to calve at any time. If she is anything like her mother, she will be nice.
Here is the new addition to our herd. Born yesterday, pictures taken tonight. You can see the attitude just radiating from her.
