HAPPY NEW YEAR!
While we continue to enjoy a beautiful winter here in LA, we are hoping and praying that the snow will eventually fall! Warm days are great... moisture is even better.
Now that we've made it through the Christmas season and the kids are back in school, we will look at switching gears in our feeding. Everything has been on dry feed or corn grazing or stockpiled grazing through November and December but we will be opening our silage pile soon. There is definitely an appeal to feeding just hay or greenfeed but we really like to cheapen our ration with straw, so a-mixing-we-will-go!
We have weaned and sold some steers. They are on feed at Lamb's in Balzac and we are hopeful that they feed well for them. We have sold a few bred heifers this year to new customers. It's always fun to meet new people in the business! Our heifers are all headed to nice operations and will hopefully be productive for many years there.
We (and our very helpful friends) will wean and process all the heifer calves in the coming days. It's the last weaning of the season!
Then, I guess it's nothing but free time until calving...
Hope to see you in 2021!
