It’s been a beautiful “winter” so far…and I won’t complain one bit about the lack of snow, the brown grass or the unseasonably warm weather.
On the crop side of things, a couple of well-timed spring rains will do just as much (if not more) than any snow cover would do…and as far as the cattle side goes, things are perfect.
The weather is warm enough that if a calf is born outside, it’s not the worst thing in the world, and yet it’s cool enough that the ground is frozen and we aren’t dealing with the mess that mud causes. Things have gone very well, and we haven’t lost a calf yet to weather-related issues. (I’m knocking on wood as I say that.)
Speaking of which, I thought I would share some pictures of our herd. I hope you enjoy:
Enjoy your Thursday!
Love those sleepy calves. Nothing cuter than babies curled up in the hay. Glad your calving season is going well! Stevie@ruffledfeathersandspilledmilk.com
I’m stealing the calf in the 3rd picture, just so you know 🙂
