We have a whole bunch of springers (cows that are about ready to calve) due in the next few weeks, and no where to go with them in the barn. So...we looked them over, and decided who might be the best option to sell at the sale barn. We had her delivered to the barn yesterday, and today she was sold at the dairy sale.
I had to spend the morning shopping for a new dishwasher, but was finished in time to go with Jim to see her sell. We got to the sale after she was already sold, but picked up the check (which more than paid for the new dishwasher! :) ) and watched some heifers sell. I snapped a picture of the sale...(not our cow in the ring)...
It was a farmer date! We stopped for lunch on the way home, and now it's just about time to head to the barn for evening milking.
I'm sitting here typing...hearing the furnace run because it's chilly inside...but hearing the birds singing out on the porch through the closed windows. They're just as glad as I am that it's SPRING!!
