Sights of the Farm

Greetings from Minnesota. We’re still in a cool spell, and some mornings I
almost debate putting on long sleeves. It did hit 80 yesterday afternoon, so I guess it’s not too cool!

This winter I did a “sights” post, and I tried to give you a glimpse of what the farm looks like covered in snow.

Get ready for a little mini-tour of summer here at the farm. You may have seen a few of these before, but most are new.

Dairy steers; fat and happy! I don’t think I’ve blogged about it yet, but we’ve been keeping our bull calves for the past few months and raising them. We keep them until 300-400 pounds, and then we’ll sell them to area farmers who will finish raising them to market weight.

This picture is over a week ago, but it still shows fully tasseled corn.

This little 1/2 Jersey bull is so cute he needs several photos. 🙂

  1. That 1/2 Jersey bull IS really cute! Almost looks like a little deer in the pics. Glad it’s finally cooled off there!

    Gah! You’ve made me miss the “joy” of feeding calves! They are so cute when they are little…before they are strong enough to butt you around!
