Rain and run

It's raining. All of the crops are happy! But it was too wet to chop today.

That means - they cut the alfalfa yesterday. If this would have been like the last two cuttings, it would have been ready to chop this afternoon. However, there was no sun, no wind, and super high humidity. So it didn't dry.

Alfalfa has to be the right conditions to chop, or you're just going to get bad feed. So we'll wait until it dries and just be grateful for the rain on everything else.


Also ... do you live in mid-Michigan? Do you want to support agriculture? Do you want to run or walk a 5K on Saturday? Then do I have the race for you!

Several county Farm Bureaus have organized the Hoofing It For Ag 5K run/walk at the Gratiot County Fairgrounds on Aug 6. The Udder Fun Run for kids is at 9:15 and the 5K starts at 9:40. To find out more click here.
