Thinking Of Spring

Spring should be just around the corner. One of these days, the sun will break out and we will find ourselves far behind in the multitude of spring chores.

We started getting ready for the season to change by making a trip to the farm store in town.

Mike picked up a 2000 lb. pallet of lime to spread on all the grass fields along with two rolls of baling wire. The lime will be sprinkled on the fields to ‘sweeten’ the Ph levels in ground that has been stripped of nutrients through the wet winter. The areas that get the lime practically jump with new growth, the grass is more vibrant and has more nutrients for the grazing cattle.

As for the barb wire, yep you guessed it, fence fixing. The most reliable constant on the farm is the barriers, fences need attention all the time.
