A smooth Friday on the farm

Things went pretty smoothly on the farm today. The ground had dried enough to turn out milking cows out on oats for the first time. They certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves. Other than that, we did the basic Friday morning "clean up and put out hay" routine. This afternoon was just the basics of milking and feeding, save for having to haul up three loads of baleage from storage to our TMR-building area.

I'm off to pack for San Antonio, as referenced in an earlier post. It looks like I'll be flying out in rain and coming back to much cooler weather. I don't know if I'll have an opportunity to post anything while there or not, but in the meantime have a great weekend and encourage as many of your friends, family, and co-workers as possible to drink more milk, eat more cheese, and made reading The Dairyman's Blog an essential part of their daily balanced internet diet.
