has given the wheat crop a little bit of a jump start in growing.
This spring wheat crop is an important ingredient for our
dairy cows' balanced and nutritious diet.
Our plan is to chop the wheat and put it in the silo.
The Friday night date was actually a crop fact finding mission.
We were looking for the appearance of what's called the "flag leaf'".
It's appearance would indicate the right time to begin harvest.
Knowing the right time to chop is important for making sure
we get the best quality forage for our dairy cows nutritional needs.
There's always a method to the dairy farmer's madness!
I still love these dual purpose dairy dates down on the dairy farm.
commitment to providing high-quality milk
and taking good care of our cows.
