The cows on the West side are more than happy with their big round bale.
Stupid seldom leaves its side.
He is a beautiful animal.
I had John place the round bale under the trees. It is dry under there with not as much growth for them to trample. These round bales cost me 25 dollars each. Grass hay. But there are not many of them.
Hopefully we get the bale of alfalfa silage soon so I can feed that out at the same time. John will collect it soon I hope. It is difficult working with someone else (who is not working FOR me). I have to wait for him to do things in his own time.
But the cows are happy. And as you can see we had sun all morning. And by late today most of that snow will be melted – there is drizzly rain coming too.
Today I am continuing work on cleaning up the chicken shed and the nesting boxes, etc. Taking advantage of this thaw. A number of chickens have taken to sleeping in the laying boxes, so we will address that problem too. I will clean them right back to the laying mats and I will get John to put up another roosting pole. (If he is around) The chickens have plenty of space to roost but there is a hierarchy, even in the chook house. The last three days we have been able to collect TWO eggs a day. The chickens are coming out of their rest period. Good news!
I hope you have a lovely day.
WEATHER: Already we are above freezing. No more sun though.
