Milked the cows this morning, did a few odd jobs, then rolled around 80 rolls of alfalfa/orchard grass hay. I think around 80....seemed like200! Now it's time for me to milk those cows again. Tired, but a productive day!

Usually we would chop at least 2 cuttings of this alfalfa mix, but our silage pit that we put it in is in bad repair, so all is being rolled so we can line the silage pit walls with 2x2x6' concrete blocks. We're 1st going to redo our larger corn silage pit, as that time will roll around soon. Then we can work on the smaller pit this fall/winter, then pour it's new floor next spring. Usually we feed 10 t0 15% haylage & the balance corn silage.

It's nice to finish the day tired, as long as you feel like you accomplished something. The ones that I hate are when you chase your tail all day, never catch it, and fail to get anything of note done besides. Glad that you had a productive day Dan!

Good thing, might have had butter instead of milk.
