Thought it might be time to update a little here. As most of you are well aware this has been an unusually cold winter. I don’t have statistics in front of me but I think that I can safely say that since December 1 we have had fewer then 10 days that have reached 30degrees F. This extended period of cold, coupled with last weeks “polar vortex” which drove temperatures to -30 with -60 wind chills has made it more challenging then normal to keep people and animals warm and happy while keeping equipment running, but so far we are doing pretty well. We are hoping that this upcoming weeks mini “vortex” is a little nicer to us!!
One of my favorite calves, nonstandard Holstein coloring coupled with a very spunky personality!!
We spent the better part of three days last week keeping water flowing everywhere we needed it.
Cold and snow….with more of both on the way!!
I will leave you with this…Think warm thoughts!!
