This week have been enjoying the unseasonably warm weather. It feel more like the middle of March rather then February. The daffodils are even confused and are starting to pop up out of the ground. The hoof trimmer was in and all of the cows got the cow equivalent of a pedicure. We also got a new bull from Bedford, PA to breed our heifers.
This is Allen the new Guernsey bull. He will be a year old the end of the month. He adjusted quickly and has deemed him self the “King” of his herd.
The barn continues to empty out as we sell more hay and straw to the horse market that surrounds us. We made about 65,000 little bales this summer and will buy another 20,000-30,000 more before we start baling again in the end of April. Hay has gotten scarce this year and we have had to ship hay in all the way from Ohio and Canada already.
