This year we needed to keep the cattle on the permanent pastures rather than sending them back to the cropping acres for winter feeding. So there they are, munching on hay while being "watched" by our newly installed array of solar panels. Meanwhile winter was kicking up with snow and wind last week while we needed to wean the pigs, move their mothers back to the gestation area and install the next group of pregnant animals in the farrowing pens. "The difficult we do right away, the impossible takes a little longer!" But as always, we are grateful to have important work to do.
