Y'all get your waders out! IT has been raining so much here and flooding. it has been absolutely miserable for us and i'm sure the herd, too! on a positive note, our wheat is coming up and everything is greening up really early. we are just praying we don't have a killing frost later.
tennessee weather is wild and moody! it has been in the 60s and raining, then it will drop to the low 30s. It will snow one day and pour rain the next. our farm is on the edge of the cumberland plateau, so we tend to get the brunt of the bi-polar weather. thankfully, we have several tree lines to block our animals from the wind.
our farm is fairly new and we have had to build it from the ground up. There were no existing usable barns or fencing anywhere on the property. so, we have built and fenced for the last several years. it is never ending... however, i'm getting excited about designing our first calving and working barn. it will be so much easier and more pleasant to take care of the animals out of this crazy weather. If you guys have any suggestions for do's and don'ts on building a working/calving barn, please let us know!
Stay safe, warm and dry out there! God Bless!
