Milk House Addition and New Chopper

Since we have been adding cows, we needed to upgrade our milk storage, so we are adding a second 3000 gallon bulk tank and adding on to the milk house.

Removing the old awning where the milk house addition will go.  Like father like son, there is no job that doesn’t require a skid steer!  🙂

We also got our new chopper.  I know I am pretty excited to get this in the field!

It has been a very cold and wet spring for us.  We are hoping to finally start a little field work tomorrow   If all goes well, we will be busy busy busy the next couple of weeks trying to get everything done.  I know we need the hay to grow as the bunkers are getting pretty low on feed!
