Happy February! Yes, this is considered our “off time” where things around the farm slow down just a little bit. We don’t have to be up in the wee hours of the morning getting crops in the field or getting crops out of the field and we don’t have to work until the middle of the night but we still manage to fill our days up.
The last couple of days we have been hauling corn that we were storing in a grain bin to a local feed lot. A lot of the time we will sell our corn to feed lots in the area. The feed lots need a lot of corn to feed to their cattle and we are lucky that Cuming County has a total of 54 feedlots.
We have also been very lucky lately with the wonderful weather with temperatures hitting the 70s and no clouds to be seen in the sky. The guys took advantage of the nice weather and worked on getting the field finisher ready by putting new shovels on. We don’t use the field finisher much since we are a no till operation but in some cases it is needed to smooth off harvest ruts and dry out wet spots.
Watch for our next post as we will explain why we are a no till operation and our mission to leave the land better than how we found it.
No matter what is going on around the farm we are always in good company with our loyal farm dog, Summer.
