Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

What happened to our snow?
I was hoping for at least enough to cover up the mud
that we have been dealing with this winter!
The cows weren't a bit impressed with the big snow either.

We have had 2 new calves born in the last 24 hours and both are
doing well. It's obvious that weather conditions are not
a factor in delaying activity on the farm.

Due to the muddy conditions experienced all winter, 
we have unrolled hay in the pasture where cows are calving. 

These expectant cows are always
monitored closely for the anticipated birth of a calf but
with changes in temperature and weather conditions, we 
become even more alert to the need for rapid response
 to provide for a safe delivery.

                                         I'm thankful for just the little bit of snow down on the
                                  dairy farm and for the opportunity to be a part of this new
                                  beginning that is part of  our farm's sustainability in producing
                                                         milk for your family and mine.
