It's Friday

Today's the last day of the workweek, unless you're a dairyman and work 7 days a week. Anyway, we're going to be working with heifers this morning. We had recently consolidated a couple of groups and now we're ready to break the one large group into three smaller groups.

The cows milk production hasn't been very consistent. If they give a lot of milk one day it seems like they'll be "off" the next. Averaged out it's been ok, but we'd always like a little more. We should be drying off 4 this afternoon, and unless one of our dry cows has a calf this morning that will put us at 169 cows in milk, the first time in quite a while we've been below 170.
