The plans for early spring chopping to make grass silage were pushed almost into summer with unprecedented May and June rain. When the rain stopped long enough for the fields to dry and allow heavy tractors and trucks to enter the field, you might have wondered about our sanity!
Harvesting a crop has challenges but it is an amazing process to see the organization and expertise of the farmers getting the job completed.
Mowing and raking were done by Ryan and Casey,
followed by the custom chopper and semi-trucks that hauled it to the silo,
packed into the silo by Cody.
I'm thankful for the blessing of a full silo that will be fed
to our dairy cows through the summer and for the dedicated farmers
that made the harvest possible.
