Midweek-Midday update

It's a warm, windy day here on Gilmer Dairy Farm. We're supposed to have a cold front come through tonight, though, and drop the temperature about 40 degrees.

We've not had a whole lot going on today. After the normal milking and feeding duties, dad I and spent time servicing some of our milking equipment while a couple of our employees cleaned the parlor. After we finished that, I spent a little better than an hour loading and unloading hay and baleage off a truck. Not terribly exiting, I know, but necessary.

It looks like I'll be handling all of the feeding duties this evening. We're also supposed to have at least one contractor come by to take a look at the feeding barn construction project we've got planned. I'm not terribly excited about the prospect of a building project as bad as our milk price is right now, but if we can get something built by summer we may save a good bit of money in the long run.
