Preparing for the Arctic Blast-December 2022

There is no such thing as being over prepared for one of these things! The weather is….well what can I say….it’s the weather and it can knock your socks off if you aren’t ready!

Here’s the chore list:

Fill extra water containers and keep them inside where they can’t freeze.

Put out extra hay. Hay is the number one feed source for the cows. The old saying is…if you have to buy…buy hay!

I do feed extra range cubes….so they are loaded and ready to go!

Wrap pipes…

Turn off water to barns and drain lines.

Turn on heat lamps in pump house.

Open all covered resting areas for maximum protection from wind.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something….!!!

And…????!!!!! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! Merry Christmas to all!

(And, yes….I’m secretly hoping for some snow!)
