In a year of extreme rain during the spring that delayed planting
and growth that has occurred in a drought, we are thankful for this corn
crop that will be enjoyed by our dairy cows in their daily feed ration.
A twelve row corn harvester certainly speeds up the job compared
to our smaller chopper.
Even though we decided to hire the chopping done, it was still a
family affair to get the crop harvested.
Ryan and Casey hauled chopped corn from the field to the
new silage pad while Cody was kept busy packing each
delivered load from all the silage trucks.
The women of the family provided
love, support and food during the long day.
It was dark when we moved the last truck home, shut gates and
moved cattle back to the pastures but there was a joy and feeling
of accomplishment that only a farmer understands from
down on the dairy farm.
