Getting Back to Normal

Over the last two weeks, excavating contractors have been digging a pond and building a road across the farm.  As they have been doing their thing, they have kept me extraordinarily busy trying to work around them.  The construction has required that we remove lots of fences, relocate equipment, and re-route buried pipes and conduits.  The cattle rotations have been disrupted and the pigs have been stuck in the same paddock longer than I’d like.  We’re glad that the construction has wrapped up; now we can start to get things back to normal.

I had to park the cattle for a few days in a hayfield and feed them a couple round bales to get them out of the way of the construction.

They were eager to get back into green grass after a few days eating hay and brush.

There was a brilliant sun coming up this morning when I moved the cattle.
