Chores during the Freeze

There are still a lot of chores that must done during these freezes. Ice chunks must be removed from waterers or they will freeze back solid when night comes.

Ice chunks

It is important to clean out any moist or wet feedstuff and replace it with fresh feed. Refill all waterers, inspect all animals for any health concerns, and replace any minerals that might have dissolved or blown away during the storm.

It will be spring before we know it…but in the meantime keep your eye on the clouds!

An Extra Hand on the Ranch!

This afternoon Bunny, one of the rescue goats, decided to try to climb aboard with me as I was feeding. The goats are excellent foragers on the Johnson grass that has started to invade the fields. But today he decided to try and hitch a ride with me and direct my efforts as I was throwing range cubes out for the cows. He is a very good manager! And a very lovable one at that!!!
