The incredible mild weather has allowed more walking and exploring some hard to reach places.
The warmer temperatures has also allowed more folks to come look at the cows. Unfortunately both groups that have come to shop the herd, have been dairy farmers who both had sold out ALL their dairy cows within the past 3 days. The goverment subsidized dairy buyout program is a complicated, and sad project.
Today my hardest working cow, Wilma, left for her new home. The new owner has lots of hay and feed for the winter. We do not. And it is critical that my cows find new homes before the really bad weather kicks in.
Wilma gave birth to a set of beautiful twin heifer calves in April. There were a lot of trials and tribulations along the way and we survived them. She was gentle, calm, smart and easy to deal with. May you become the Queen of your new barnyard.
