2019 Weather Update- It’s bad. Really bad.

We had to check our corn fields with a canoe last fall.

This is what our corn looked like in 2018 after the flood waters receded.

Hubs and I just sat down to talk about how the wet summer and fall in 2018 put us in a bad spot coming into 2019. Simply put, the weather kept us from harvesting enough feed for our animals. We had a plan for recovery, but Mother Nature is working against us. A brutally cold winter made things worse when about 80% of our alfalfa crop was killed off. Then the 2019 planting season started and we had a chance to recover but instead it just keeps raining putting our farm and countless others in a very precarious spot.

The next 3 months will be make or break for so many dairy farms. Listen in below to hear why.
