WAHOO!! Green grass


Finally we have green grass here on the farm, this past winter has been long and expensive. Hay prices are on the rise and this past winter cost us about $1,200 in hay. Last fall we planted winter rye in the pasture in hopes of a longer grazing time. We did see some growth in the fall but still needed lots of hay this wet weather and warm day temps have really given the rye a boost. The animals seem to prefer the fresh rye over the hay and I am so glad!
