Roger made a trip to North Dakota last week Thursday to be there to load trucks with new calves on Friday morning. We got in 2 loads of new calves on Friday night, 2 loads on Saturday morning, and 2 more loads on Monday morning. There were a lot of little babies missing their mothers.....as the whole neighborhood could hear! I think this is the first year that we have gotten in new calves that we haven't had cold weather or ice/snow to welcome them.
Saturday, I made a parts run for Roger in the morning, and ran the disc ripper in the field on Saturday afternoon. It wasn't too bad of a job to have for the afternoon. The tractor has auto-steer in it. So, I just had to lift the ripper on the ends and turn around. Having me in the tractor freed up Roger to help Jacob pick up bales and haul manure.
There are a never ending list of things to do on our farm every day. But...we love that we can all pitch in and work together to get those things done! I means that we get to spend our family time doing what we love....farming!
