It's a race to the finish when you are raising a crop that will be fed to your dairy cows.
The cows are counting on us!
Each phase of crop production
is part of the relay race.
We began the harvest relay of our corn crop yesterday.
It's being chopped and hauled to the silo so that it can ferment and
be fed to our dairy cows as corn silage.
Sometimes the farmer loses the race for
no fault of his own because of uncontrollable factors like weather but
like the Olympians we've been watching this week,
farmers don't quit till the end of the race.
will have a few slow starts during the harvest relay
but like true Olympians,
we can enjoy the rewards of hard work at the end of the race.
