Arkansas is known for unpredictable weather changes but
this week has been ridiculous!
Our cows and calves had less than 24 hours to adapt from a
beautiful 70 degree fall day to what felt like January bone-chilling
twenty degrees with a little sleet and snow.
We prepared as best we could by unrolling hay
for the cows to rest on and bedding calf hutches
with extra hay or shavings for warmth.
I'm thankful that this baby was born on the 70 degree day
before the chilly weather
and all the calves survived with no symptoms of illness
I'm also very appreciative of and thankful for
the warm insulated coveralls that kept me warm
and a little less cranky!
