Like my newest addition? I'd love to turn my unique updates into a linky series some day but for now I'll just continue to keep you updated on what's happening around the farm.
While on vacation we got lucky and a cow had another little baby. That's twenty down and just ONE little lady to go! Here's to hoping this lovely cold weather makes mama go into labor, they seem to like calving in cold weather. Now if you put me out there and ask me to drop my drawers and have a baby I'd flip on you and remind you that I don't even like going out to my vehicle to start it when it's cold out!
Another fun project that's been going on is hauling off contracted corn out of the bins and to the elevator. We try to contract out some corn just to make sure we'll get a set price (in hopes of big premiums) and then once that contract comes due we need to take the yellow gold to town so we can cash in a nice hunk of change to pay off all the bills that us farmers call operating expenses. We don't contract out a lot, actually, it's suggested you only contract about 1/3 of your crop that way you have the option to sell anything at a moments notice.
Travis was so lucky to be elected to the County Extension Board so occasionally his weeknights are filled with meetings. I'm excited he's taking a proactive approach and trying to get involved in the ag community, makes my little heart flutter to see him get social. :)
That's just a snippet of what's been going on around our little farm. I'd love to hear from other about their farm lifestyle and what they've been up to! Don't forget I'm opening up my Tuesday's to guest blog posts so if you're interested contact me! Until next time,
-Keep On Keepin Up
