Happy New Year--2011
Happy New Year to my friends out there. Roger spent the morning moving snow, then I went out in the calf yard to be the guider, as he tried to clean off the cement "apron" that the calves stand on to eat silage. The calves had it so packed and frozen, he was only able to take 4 or so inches off, but it will help. Don't want them to stand higher than the cables that keep them in the yard. The wind had gone down, so only my feet got cold. I am not used to the cold anymore!! He loaded and filled the bunks up again, so their stomachs should be full to stand the cold, which is going to be with us all week. We got about 5-6 inches of snow, but the northern part of SD got much more, 12 and over in some places.
