It is a constant battle to keep the barns clean even though we don’t have the cows in there all the time.
Today was barn cleaning because the 100% rain that was predicted held off until the evening. We ended up pulling four loads of manure out of the one barn on this day. Once the manure is in the ‘honey wagon’ it is spread out on the hay fields as fertilizer. The rains will break down the thick manure and the nutrients will give the grass a good shot of nitrogen to grow quickly as the weather warms a bit.
