No weather problems

Gustav stayed far enough to our west that we never got more than a nice breeze. With no rain falling, we were able to move around some pregnant heifers and dry cows this morning. We also got some hay bales moved out of a couple of fields in time to get some ammonia nitrate spread this afternoon.

None of our cows...neither the milking herd nor either group of dry cows...seemed interested in moving around or eating this afternoon. Our milk cows didn't want to come in the barn to get milked and then didn't want to leave and go to the feed trough after they'd been milked. All our dry cows wanted to do was lay around instead of grazing. It struck us as pretty odd since it's been overcast, breezy, and relatively mild. We'll see how they act tomorrow I guess.
