A rainy Friday here on the farm

The rain started falling about 4:00am and looks like it will continue throughout today and into tomorrow. So far, it's been light and steady...just what the doctor ordered for our spring forage crops!

Other than getting our heifers fed and a few bales of hay put out, I'm not sure what we'll get into this morning. We'll probably spend some time tinkering around in the farm shop this morning so as to keep a roof over our heads. I'll be back in the dairy parlor this afternoon to assist with the milking chores, barring nuclear holocaust or my wife going into labor of course.

In the meantime, take a moment to visit the good folks at Orange Patch Dairy. They have some excellent stories to share about how they take good care of their cows.
