Dairy Farm Magic

As I was watching the hay mowing cutter go across the field yesterday, 
I thought back to late last fall when Hattie and I were watching the 
manure spreader go in a similar pattern spreading  liquid cow manure.

From brown to green...a little dairy farm manure  magic!

 Cow manure is a nutrient used to fertilize fields that are 
part of our dairy farm's nutrient management plan.

Utilizing our  cows' manure is  an important part of our farm's
 sustainability because it adds organic material to the soil, 
increases the water holding capacity of the land and
decreases the amount of commercial fertilizer that is purchased.

                                             A perfect picture of a farmer working his magic!
