Even though is was cold and nasty yesterday we all bundled up and went to the farm to work on the show calves. These two spent most of their time trying to pet Bekka and playing in the corner with the bales. Before we left they were both able to pet her. ❤️

Why does ground beef turn brown?

Here’s great little meat science lesson! If you buy ground beef in different packaging, the meat could have some different characteristics. Take a few minutes and give it a watch. .

The ladies are much happier on that side of the fence! Currently, no-tilling soybeans into the stalk and rye field where the cows spent the majority of the winter. They really love going to spring grass!

Does it really happen without a picture?! The cows are grazing in the background on some stalks that had rye sowed last fall. The rye is just enough to hold them over a bit long before they head to grass! And, yes....the rain is coming!!
