Hard Work Pays Off

During the summer months we are kept busy with putting up a supply of feed for the cattle so we can feed them during the winter months. Trying to get this feed put up in the right weather conditions can sometimes be a challenge. But once again this past year we were able to cut a luscious green crop of feed and store it for the winter months.

Therefore we are now able to serve this menu to our cows every day.

Here about 180 cows come and have their fill once a day. During the winter months a lot of time gets spent in making these animals comfortable. Whenever we get a snowfall they need to be bedded with fresh straw. In calving season the cows that are close to having their calves need to be brought into a warmer place for them to have their babies,therefore we go and check up on them on a regular basis. This is part of what keeps the farmers busy through the winter months.
