We got a good start to our Spring grass with good rains a couple of weeks ago. The current dry weather, however, has dampened the growth somewhat. We have been irrigating our hay field to help produce more growth. The cows are still on our back hillside but forage is running a little thin there and we'll need to move cows in the next week or so.
Scotch-broom is in full swing and we are controlling with our brush hog and cutting by hand. This is hard work! We are growing our goat herd larger and next year hope to have the goats on our back hillside to control re-growth.

A recent European study proves that drinking raw milk (or "farm milk") reduces the incidence of Asthma and Allergies (View PDF file of this study). This is great information for proponents of raw-milk.
