This time of year is a busy one for our farmers! We have fall harvest occuring while 2015 wheat is being planted. Along with that we received 103 head of calves in to feed for the winter and there will be more to come in the near future!
Update on the soybean harvest, the end is in sight, but what is left is too green to harvest. So they finished what could be cut yesterday. Then we wait on the other couple fields and the milo.
My husband inspected fields of recently planted wheat. There were a few skips in the fields, so he went back over those the other day.
On Saturday they worked the 103 head of calves, it was a long process for the two of them. Sometimes things don’t go exactly as planned and the calves are missing their mommas for sure! I wasn’t able to help work cattle this time but I will the next batch! I was preparing our home and the food for our annual landlord dinner.
Watching my husband in his elements makes my heart go pitter patter and I love watching him do what he loves. Although it is difficult at times since our schedule runs around him, it makes it easier when I know how important it is to him.
One of the benefits of having the calves for the winter is that our daughter can learn how to be responsible. I happen to be in the farm yard on Sunday evening when it was time to feed. She was helping Dad and Grandpa, and I am glad I at least had my smart phone.
