Labor Day is always a day of labor on the dairy farm. Our dairy cows would not understand if we didn't show up at the milk barn at milking time or make sure their feed was mixed and served in the barn on time!
Our Labor Day holiday did begin with
a gentle rain this morning that brought cooler temperatures and created the opportunity for a diversion of our planned silage chopping activity to vaccinating a couple of our herd bulls.
That's how holidays on the family dairy farm are created...
they happen when least expected and are always unplanned!
