|Discing the field|
Throughout this process, we depend on dry weather. If fields are too wet, tractors and equipment can’t move through them without getting stuck. Another variable is equipment repairs, when machinery works hard, things break and need to be repaired. This year, we’ve been fortunate to have great weather. Much different than last year when it wouldn’t stop raining!
Lad, Kevin and Taylor take care of all the farming along with their daily work at the dairy which results in very long hours. When there is a window of opportunity to work in the field, it is taken because you never know what the weather will be tomorrow.
