Cold days then warm days!

We had yet another snow earlier this week, giving us a total snow fall this winter of over 2 feet! That’s a lot for us! It was quickly followed by warm sunny days, so it didn’t stay around for long.

Kim took 19 yearling heifers to the sale on Monday after leaving them on hay fields, down near Carlsbad, for the winter. He quickly brought them home after these days started warming up and the alfalfa started growing, which can bloat the cattle overnight and be deadly! We did lose one before we could get them off, but got the rest home, sorted out the ones we wanted to keep for replacement cows and sold the remainder for a good price. He also bought 5 bred cows to replace some dry cows he sold a few weeks ago.
