Saturday Morning Update

Here are some random farm notes and updates:
  • Our cows' overall milk production has been down about a pound over the past three day. We've still got several cows to dryoff and more to calve, so as our average DIM starts getting lower our "milk per cow" should go up.
  • The five cows Dr. David Hidalgo (Amory Animal Clinic) checked on Thursday seem to be responding well to their treatment.
  • An inch and a half of rain fell on our farm yesterday, and hopefully we will now be able to start drilling in the remainder of our cool-season crops.
  • As part of my son's birthday party, I'll be giving his little friends a hayride around the farm this afternoon and will show them how the cows are milked.
