Lots of pre planting going on here. No frost in open fields. Lots of baby calves. I'd like to haul some manure but have lots of fence to fix too. I'm thinking another year I should cut back.

I've been busy as a beaver getting fences ready to turn bossies out. I am going to start vaccinating calves Monday. The grass has been slow starting but we are almost out of hay.
