milk, milk and moore milk

Well, it's Monday again. What wonderful weather we had over the weekend, hope to see some more of that soon. We really need to find some new milk customers, any ideas? We have a new Jersey cow producing 1.5 to 2 gallons per milking and our brown Swiss is putting out about 2.5 to 3 gallons per milking. We need to make cheese.

Prayer today

Well, good morning to whomever is reading this, I am and have been in prayer about my relationship with my son. Pray for us, if you feel lead to do so. I have learned so much about the Lord and relationships in the past few years, it is time I start applying these principles to my life.

John 14 : 23 Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

God Bless and Lord keep me safe safe today.

as promised back again.....

I don't think i mentioned something about Herbie the pig, he was out for the free animals, there is always a reason. He was wild, I took him to the auction house in Springfield as i mentioned; however there was a ex-vet there would let me bring him in to be auctioned. He gave me some brochures on wild pigs and the diseases they might have, we sold him in the parking lot to a man for $25, I would have paid someone $25 to take him from me.

back again

I will try to post a quick note each morning, so here's the first of many (hopefully). I was looking over my past blogs, since my last post we got Herbie, he was hopefully successful in breeding our two pigs, we'll know closer to April. We took him and Rose the cow, our first milker tto the auction at Springfield about a month ago now. Rose was not able to calf anymore we think, she just couldn't get and stay breed. This winter has been quite cold, the rye won't grow, so hay has been a necessity. In saying that, we had some hay for the cows that was kept in a low spot at my wife's grandparents, bless him for giving us hay, who knew it would soak up some much water. To make a long story short the hay made the cows sick, they are all well now; however we are having to purchase hay. We have a new cow as well, another milker, her name is Sugar, she is a Jersey, first year milking, so she'll be around for a while. We have loads of milk- Got Milk? =)
