Fall weather

It looks like we may finally be seeing some "normal" weather for this time of the year. We'll have a couple of days of damp, dreary weather followed by a few clear days. This morning, the sun is shining and it's about 35 degrees, but it will warm up to the mid-60's by early afternoon.

All the wheat, oats, and ryegrass we previously planted appear to have sprouted. We still have about 30 acres left, and might get that in the end of this week if the ground will dry alot today. If we can't get it planted this week, we may just wait until corn season to plant that field.

The cows are enjoying the cooler weather and have upped their production just a little. We weighed milk yesterday and the "unofficial" results show about a 60 pound per cow average. We're about to have to change their feed formulation a little bit, as cottonseeds have now gotten too expensive to buy. It will be interesting to see how are cows react to removing the seeds from the TMR.
