Hay, Hay, Hay
June 14, 2020
Where has the time gone!
I can't believe it's this far into June already. We have been busy rotating animals around and still occasionally chasing beefers back into their temp fencing.
One of our heifers Poppy seems to be one of the biggest trouble makers. She was a bottle-fed baby raised by us last year because her mother had difficulty calving her and didn't want her afterward. She's kind of a big baby and thinks she owns the place and is free to go through fences whenever the mood strikes her.
We've also been doing hay, hay, and more hay. Rob lives in the hayfield this time of year and doesn't quit until long after dark. Some nights he doesn't get in until 10:30 PM.. but he loves it.
We love knowing we are providing the feed for our animals to eat throughout the winter and are in charge of the quality. Without great quality hay and grasses, you can't grow great animals. He's known as the Balage King among the local farmers and does some custom work for them as well.
