Farm report: we are like all farmers in our area too wet to work the last few days. They were able to work the weaned calves they get shots for deceases like Black leg etc.
We need some drying days so we can finish beans. We will move on to corn and knock out some of those acres. Take care until next time

Since it was cooler yesterday I needed to cut off and remove lots of my plants that had over grown their space.
Farm Report: Have been in the field several days, had a few hiccups as always, moving right along Planted some grass in the hay fields, worked cattle and weaned some calves. Just staying with the program. Take care until we talk again

He was guarding the feeder not sure why there is plenty for all of them.
Farm report Crops are coming right along Some of the hay has had a second cutting.
Cows and calves are doing good. Took a trailer load of fats to Rockville, In. got a few left in the feed lot. The rain is something we needed before the heat returned. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Until next time stay safe

Wheat Harvest seem to happen on the hottest days of the year. If I am not mistaken it was 97 degrees and 97% humidity my guys walked the fields and picked up all of the straw. I was the driver easy compared to what they did. We use it in the barns so the calves have a dry place to lay down especially when it is wet and in winter weather. We have round baled some to unroll for the cows that are out on pasture. Just another day in the life of a farmer. God gave us a great day to unload.
We got 2.97 inches of rain last week and the next day it was all gone that is how dry it has been.
I prefer this weather we had today. Take care until next time

The ice cream, pies, cookies and cakes were a real hit. Thank You Farm Bureau for sponsoring a great evening.
Farm report: Making Hay while the sun shines. Cutting pastures so we can find the calves. And hauling grain to the city. Some areas around us got 3 inches of rain in 45 minutes that is a lot of rain.
Praying for the folks in Texas Take care until next time
