I took a break from the office today to accompany my husband on his daily winter feeding routine. Because grass is really non-existent this time of year, we have to find other feed staples for our cattle. Many of our mother cows are grazing on corn fields – enjoying the stalks and un-picked corn still in the field. To ensure they get all of the vitamins and nutrients they need, we supplement their diets with protein cubes, and, in some cases, hay. Feeding is a full-day routine, but we make a lot of friends along the way.
I am a city girl that is learning about life on the farm. I met and married a fourth-generation farmer, Derek. I am now a farmer's wife and country girl. The move has required a few changes and a lot of learning. But I wouldn't change my new life and all of the little lessons and surprises it provides.
