December 1st, 2014

Today began with milking muddy udder-ed cows.   The problem with muddy cows, besides having to clean them up, the muddy floor, the risk of dirt getting in the milk, and the profligate drain on the paper towel supply – is that it takes so long to just get them clean that they eat all their grain and start dancing around which just exacerbates everything.   Bonnie is the worst – she lurches around like a drunken sailor licking up the last dregs.  I give them hay when their grain is gone, but they aren’t really happy with that.  Oh well, perhaps it will dry up a bit.

Beyond that, for me it was an administrative day – a lot of time spent on the computer and running errands.  Dan and Liza were here overnight so Chris had to do the airport run to get them back to NYC.

The only farm work that got done was livestock chores, and Beth worked in the hoop house, made some bacon, and other sundry items.   We’ll see what tomorrow brings, but that was our day at Woodcrest.
