Farm Tidbits- Silage Chopping

posted on

May 7, 2024

We had some beautiful and just plain old hot weather last week!

Thursday was a record high, and it felt like it.


Between the rains Monday night and Friday morning we were able to get 60 acres of ryegrass/wheat/rye grasses harvested for winter feed that week.

The cows helped us out in harvesting the ryegrass as well as we have over 300 head out grazing the ryegrass before it stops growing in June (it’s like me, doesn’t like the heat).

The picture shows the storm clouds that dumped 2” of rain on some neighbors on Wednesday night.

A little farther north and it would have messed up our silage chopping!
