Transformation Tuesday

Remember two years ago I shared a sweet story about a very special new baby calf? Well Marna is in with the cows and expecting her first calf at the end of month and my Little Farmer is very excited! I just love watching these girls grow up and develop, they are the future of our herd, the future of the Guernsey breed. Did you know that a dairy farmer waits two years before seeing any return on each cow? That's a long "crop rotation"!  Just like all mammals a cow must have a calf to produce milk. We breed our heifers to calve no sooner than two years of age, so before she is milking, we are raising her for our future and what she will add to our herd. It's a huge investment and a long wait, that's why their care is so important to us. We look forward to the day that each joins our herd and well some just hold a very special place in our hearts!

Something has to Give

Another month and no posts. Fairly certain many of you have given up on my writing, don't blame you! I seriously have had zero time with my keyboard and it breaks my heart! With a work force of four on our farm, my main job is caring for my family and Ladies. It is what is most important, and sometimes that means that something has to give, unfortunately lately that has been my writing!

There are a few changes happening here on our farm and I can't wait to share the details with you after we get some fine print ironed out. For now I am focusing on the every day with my family and herd! Although I am absent in my posts here please find and follow me on Facebook and Instagram: Guernsey Dairy Mama. I at least have time to share pictures and short updates there!
I am still here, and love sharing my story with you all.  I can't wait to get writing back into my schedule, but until then connect with me!

If you are looking for some great reading this month, many of my agvocate friends have taken up a 30 day writing challenge for the month of November. Check it out and follow along! I know I will be!

Until my keyboard and I meet again; take care!

Happy Halloween 2014! Spending time with my farm boys is most important!
