Well, after plow day, back to farm work!  Today I milked, then put the silage wagon away for the season in the barn at Dad's.  Then finished loading the scrap steel onto the trailer & hauled it off to the scrap yard so the trailer would be empty come hay making time (Dad cut the 20 acres today) later in the week.  Got back & hooked my truck to the cattle trailer to take 3 culls to market tomorrow.  Then got the dry cows up & sprayed for flies, separating one for sale, and one fresh cow to put into the milking string.  Josh got the dry cows up while I sprayed them, & he got the new calf in.   Then I went down to the calf barn , tagged some calves, and weaned 3, moving them to the group pen.  Put the new calf in a stall & sprayed all the calves for flies, then fed silage & called it a work day.  Got a lot done & felt good!  

  ANOTHER day where nothing broke or went wrong! :thumbs:

Boy, that's great news that you had a break down free day. Hopefully things will ease up a bit now for you especially since plow day has come and gone. I know you enjoyed doing the PD, but it also added to the work load and stress for a while.

Plow Day was stressful & a lot of work, but SO worth every bit!   :thumbs:   The real stress reliever was finishing silage season.  Now just shelling the 65+ acres of corn & emptying the manure pits as far as anything toward the major side of things.

Good luck at the auction!

 

Auction is tomorrow.  I never go to the sale, as I have better things to do....always work to be done.  Got home from market this morning, then dehorned 7 calves, shots, and banded 4 soon to be steers.  May put more purlins on the garage this afternoon.  Gonna go up & put the mower deck on one of Fred's tractors so Denise can mow.  They were taken off for plow day.

Yes, yet ANOTHER smooth, uneventful, non-breakdown day!  I didn't do any shop roof work though.  I decided to finish bush hogging the pasture field next to the current shop.  Got that finished, then feeding time.  Now time to feed ME....starving!   :thumbs:   Gonna have some leftover Plow Day Chili!

Oh, the silage mixer wagon is beginning to develop more wear leaks in the bottom next to reinforcement patches.  Hoping it will hold well enough to get past corn shelling time, but it is just a matter of time before I must finally put the new floor pan in this wagon.  I'll have to rent a feed mix wagon while I do this major repair.  Being things have calmed down, I won't mind getting into this at all.   I say that now..........   :rolling:

Glad things have calmed some so you can plan the repairs. Hope it continues!
