May is just around the corner which means that I will be picking mulberries in the near future and my spouse will plant soybeans. But today we sorted cattle to have them ready for the semi’s to pickup in the next week or so. My husband needed some help so I was the gal for the job!
These ladies were not real excited to have us out in their pen today! We eventually won them over and got them sorted. TEAMWORK was needed for sure! I’m happy to say we worked well together today.
Which ones are smaller? Take a gander at their backside!
Did I mention that it rained earlier this week so the cattle pen was pretty mushy. If I would have thought about it, I would have skipped the elliptical this morning! This was WAY more of a workout I promise.
Power washers are a must on the farm! They quickly clean off the manure upon thy boots!
Um…. aren’t you suppose to be out in the pen WITH us Charlie?
I will leave you today with a photo of the wheat I look at daily out my home office or kitchen window. This is irrigated wheat.
Thanks for stopping by for our Farm Post Friday! If you have questions please feel free to ask!
Grace is a gift,

I enjoy reading your blog, Julie, and your reflections on farm life. I’m a farm girl, at heart, having grown up on a family farm in South Dakota, milking Holsteins and driving farm equipment. I find myself a “city girl” in Minnesota, now, but I miss the farm/country on a daily basis.
Thanks for sharing your farm life experiences with us!
p.s. Herding cattle in muddy cattle yards brings back vivid memories for me. Thank goodness for good cattle dogs!
