Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

If you didn't   have a watch or a cell phone to give you the time, you
could still   estimate  time down on the dairy farm  by
 watching the cows standing in the pasture. It's obvious that like us,
the cows are creatures of habit.  
The feed wagon with silage rolls into the dry cow pasture  every
morning  around 8:30.  Today was no different and you can
see the cows are eagerly watching and  waiting  to get 
their first bite.

Dry cows receive a pellet feed that is formulated for their
metabolic needs during this time of resting and preparing to
give birth. The silage on the wagon is like dessert to the cows.
It's no wonder that there is a lot of mooing if the wagon is late!

                                     I'm thankful for  the simple daily reminders to 
                                   appreciate the predictable  and the unpredictable
                                            like an iris blooming in  November!
