  • Breeding for spring, fall fryers have arrived, and more

    Posted on August 20, 2017 by in Uncategorized

    It’s breeding time! We are just ending breeding season for the milking cows, which means the bulls have been with the cows for 50 days.  Like humans, cows have a nine-month gestation.  Because we’re a seasonal farm, we exactly plan our breeding schedule so that calves are born during a 50-day span in April and May.  At […]

    When the cows are moved to a new pasture… … usually they run right to the lush, viny vetch or the rich, dainty clover.  But not this morning.  This time the ladies ran right past it all and headed straight to the six-foot-tall rough and stalky pig weeds.  I guess sometimes we all need a change of flavors and […]

    Surprise, it’s a duck! Among all those layer chicks in the brooder house, could those be some webbed feet?  …and a flat bill?  Sure enough, the hatchery mistakenly sent us a baby duckling in our last order of chicks.  And it’s sure to become a family pet, judging by all the attention it’s gotten so […]
