What happened on a Wednesday

There was nothing too exciting about farm work today. I spent a fair amount of time this morning doing some paperwork in preparation for the upcoming Lamar Co. Farmers Federation annual meeting. The second half of the morning, we really started tearing into our two New Idea 5408 model hay cutters, both of which are in need of repair. Each one looks to need a new cutterbar shaft, along with assorted other repairs. We'll more than likely just fix one and use the other for parts.

We weighed our cows milk this afternoon, and should have some preliminary results back tomorrow or Friday. Two of our dry cows calved last night, and we brought them through the milking barn for the first time this afternoon. Each cow had a heifer calf, and both dams and daughters are doing exceptionally well.
