For those who observe Daylight Savings Time, it ended overnight.

Don't forget to set your clocks back.

I set my bedroom clock last night, but still need to do the stove, micro, toaster oven, car, truck,..........
My day off, so not critical as to the time.

Curious as to how you and your cattle deal with the time change. I worked on a few small dairy farms in high school and seem to remember lots of impatient cattle with leaking udders waiting their turns on this morning.

I split the difference with them, so the cows & myself have to deal with it equally! LOL My son milked this morning, so likely a lot of impatient cows waiting on him. I milk all mornings but once a week, so they'll be closer to schedule tomorrow morning.

Good to hear you can take a shift off and have a reliable back up and especially nice to hear its your son! :thumbs:
Too many don't or wont carry on the family farm from their parents, way to go!

Being my son has advantages & disadvantages. Good thing is he sticks with me, though many times he wants to chuck farming. Then he pencils out what a public job he'd have to have to equal what he has here & he's good for a while. The bad thing is I could fire anyone else when they got pissy....can't fire my own son!
He does pretty good though, but doesn't look anywhere past "today". Tomorrow is a "best guess" outlook, but still, you have to have a plan.

Been there done that, our son worked in family business for about 8 years before he moved out of state, there were times I would have LOVED to ........
Best of luck to you.
