Too Darn Cold!

Yes, i did take out and unroll four bales of hay to my cows. Yes, i should be strip grazing. But it’s TOO DARN COLD! I get out, cut the strings, pull them off, get in the WARM pickup, unroll, then do it again. Except for cutting strings and busting ice on the tank, I’m not gettin’ out much.  Windchill is 8°F below zero.  (-22C)

The leak valve is keeping the water coming into the tank, but I think not enough overflow to keep ice from forming on top at night when the cows aren't drinking. There is always a hole straight above the leak valve that is open. Incredibly! the water in the ditch is still running - barely. — at Tannachton Farm.
