In the Field

We were able to get our silage chopper going late yesterday morning, and over the course of about 6.5 hours were able to cut 19 loads of sorghum silage. We're not sure how things are going to play out over the next 48 hours, though. There is a front that's expected to move through tonight that may dump enough rain to make the field too muddy to operate in. Ahead of that, though, are isolated storms that could hit at anytime today. So, we'll get what we can get today and hope that the rain doesn't shut us down for too long.

Our milking herd is back up to 190 with all the recent calvings, and milk production is up too. That's really good news, especially since the price we receive for our milk is in the process of dropping.
