Harvest Marathon

Harvest  sometimes feels like a very long marathon...
we wait to plant,
we wait for the crop to grow,
we wait for harvest.

Like all silage crops,this  sorghum  silage crop is being cut
 and hauled to the silo where it will ferment before being fed to the dairy  cows.
You might think of this as cow candy!

I often wonder if our cows know how hard we work to make sure
 they have a good supply of nutritious feed to enjoy through the winter.

It's a marathon of ups and downs,
starts and stops,
once you've experienced the harvest of any crop,
you know why it is celebrated!
