SNOW: Still Not Off Work

snow covered cows

Woke up this morning with about four inches of snow and more coming.  The first thing I wondered about was could I pick up the dairyman in my truck, or would I need to drive the tractor?  There is no crying in baseball, and there are no snow days on a dairy farm.  

We'll have to make sure the cows and calves have plenty of hay and water today, and they are always milked twice no matter what.  Days like this are definitely harder to work in.  What normally takes just a few minutes to do will take a lot longer today.  And then you have to ask, what do you do with all that snow?
