Spring on a Michigan dairy farm
We had a busy spring of burying irrigation pipe, planting corn, filling sink holes in the fields, repairing equipment, planting, getting hay for feed, getting straw for feed and bedding – oh, and milking, feeding and caring for our queens!
We drilled – or planted – soybeans in May.
My beautiful wife, Ali, took a turn planting.
I managed to catch some zzz’s at the doctor’s office. Four stitches later, it was back to planting.
We got our first cutting of hay in before the end of May. After last year’s drought, this is a promising sight.
At the beginning of June, we did some crop scouting in one of our cornfields.
It was a very busy spring for us! Every day we’re incredibly thankful that we are able to spend so much time together as a family, doing what we love.
