There are times when heifers=teenaged girls, ( IMO, NO OFFENCE INTENDED.) They are funny, cute, giddy, kick up their heels, and have a great time just being young. Unfortunately, they sometimes run amuck and hit fences. Mostly they learn, grow up and become great mothers.

Been greasing equipment.  Hope we have a break-down free day, as I plan on hauling the poo all day tomorrow as hard as we can go.  Rain "may" come Tuesday, with possibly even mixed with snow.  Ground is finally dry enough to go most anywhere.  Wish we could get 2 to 3 rain few days so we could pump it to the bottom.  I need to get this job off my mind & schedule so I can move on to the next.

spreading poo and blowing snow are jobs that you learn real quick which way to fling it!

Having a crappy day & lovin it!  Had a few issues to start the day.  I need to cough up the money for a pair of tractor batteries.  Both 2745's batteries are crapping out.  Got em started though, so good for the day.  Just tightened up my 2745's shift coupler.  Been getting almost impossible to get in high gear.  Hope that does the trick.

A few days at my wages!  Day went very well till about dairy chore time.  I was going to haul a few more loads while Josh started chores, but my tank plug wasn't plugging!  Figured it worse than it turned out to be.  One of the inner tank partition walls came loose & blocked the stopper hole.  Gonna likely wait till morning to try & get it out.  Hope it'll come out from under the rear partition.  I think it's short enough to make the turn upward.  I'll have to set a fan up there to blow out the methane that can build up in a hurry.  That's the main reason to wait till morning while the air is cold.  When it's warmer, like now, you can see the methane coming from the top of the tank.  Gonna be at or below freezing in the morning.
