We have had some extra time on our hands lately. We may not be staying home because we want to, but it has actually been a blessing in disguise.
As you know, we tend to run ourselves ragged with jobs, school, showing and life in general. This kind of schedule isn't very conducive to the farm life. Many times, our busy life means the maintenance of our farm and herd gets put on the back burner. The thing that screams the loudest is what gets done, and the cows don't do a whole lot of screaming.
This hectic schedule is O.K. for a while, but at some point we have to stop and take care of the daily maintenance items before everything is broken and sick.
I'll have to admit, more times than we like, we are reacting to the emergency instead of working to get ahead of the problems.
This past week has been interesting...
To say the least.
As the Coronavirus has spread, so have the cancellations of schools, mass gatherings, and life as we know it.
Included in the cancellations is the Ohio Beef Expo.
But the sale will go on!
Are you going to the Ohio Beef Expo?
The Expo will be held at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus, Ohio on March 19th - 22nd.
This year is going to be big for the Miniature Herefords!
Not only is there a Miniature Hereford show...
But new this year, the Miniature Herefords will be participating in the sale.
Hello! I am Heather... the city girl turned mom to manure loving country boys. My husband and I both grew up in the city, but spent weekends visiting grandparents in the country. We are first generation farmers who learn best by almost always doing things the hard way. I hope you enjoy following along with our adventures down on the farm.
