The snow has disappeared again. We’ve suffered through a couple of days of strong winds with that snow… and the guys are making regular trips through the cows. Our heifers are down to the last few, but now the cows are starting to calve. It was miserable with the wind chill, thankfully, we made it through fairly well.
Even those that were born during the storm were born in a protected enough area out of the wind to make it. So long as a calf gets up right away, it seems to make a difference. If they just lay there, they chill down and it’s a struggle.
Everyone just relaxes when the sun shines… the warmth of a wind break and solar heat is simply amazing.
We’re grateful for the little things.
