I mentioned in my last post that ’tis the season to stock up for winter. Same goes for the livestock around here. Matt’s been piecemealing a stockpile of hay for the cattle for winter – alfalfa hay for the stocker calves, grass hay for the cows & bull. We’ve also got straw in the barn for winter hog bedding. Come fall we’ll also stock up on cornstalk bales for winter cattle bedding.
That rig in the picture doesn’t belong to us. Matt hires another farmer friend of his to help haul hay for us. At this point it doesn’t make sense for us to own a large flatbed (and the larger truck needed to pull it). Maybe someday…
