The following photo is a just a small tragedy, a cracked mainline. This has stopped our irrigation for a few days while we fix this crack.
Thanks to a grant from Animal Welfare Approved
and support from our Credibles
customers we have started work on our egg handling / chicken processing clean room. We are renovating our old cattle chute area for this purpose and moving the cattle chute to a different location, which will also make working the beef and sheep herds easier. The photo below shows Allie who is working on this project.
Finally, the cows are enjoying this years summer annual grass crop, moving into this field on July 15th, 45 days following initial planting. This is a sudan grass that thrives in the heat. Sudan grass also does well with minimal watering, allowing us to limit the amount of irrigation we need to apply.
