We were happy to see Gittlein's custom chopper pull into the first corn field yesterday.
Harvesting of any crop is a big deal but our corn crop is especially
important to our dairy cows diet through the winter and early spring.
All the corn we raise is chopped and hauled from the field to the
silo on the dairy farm.The chopped corn will go through a
fermenting process and become the silage that our dairy cows
will enjoy eating with other grains and hay.
It was my good fortune to be offered a ride around the field
with my oldest son Cody.This was our view of the chopper as
we drove down the field side by side so the corn could be
blown from the chopper into the truck.
With three trucks running to haul the corn to the silo,
it gave us opportunity to catch up on a little mother-son communication
as we waited for our turn to pull up to the chopper.
the unexpected opportunities to spend time with my family,
to share life down on the dairy farm
with multiple generations.
