Our youngest son, Corbin graduated from high school on May 31 and we haven’t slowed down for a minute since then. We have been baling wheat straw behind several farmers who are ready to get in and plant beans, so we have been trying to keep up with them since we have some moisture and they are chomping at the bit. The wheat straw is being mixed with fruit and vegetable waste that we are getting truckloads of several times a week and we are feeding it to cattle where we are short on grass, which is actually quite a few places. We are usually in a pinch this time of year between winter annuals and when the summer annuals and bermuda really kick in, especially if the key ingredient of rain is missing. We are also battling cinch bugs which are eating our Sorghum Sudan grass and have even been munching on our bermuda grass. Bad bugs- hopefully the recent rain will help destroy them since I understand they are most detrimental during dry conditions. We had a nice visit on Monday from 5 Angus enthusiasts from the northern part of the county and thoroughly enjoyed showing them the cattle and visiting with them. Our “ET man”, Greg Clements came today and flushed five donors and froze a total of 60 embryos. We are very excited that a number of those embryos are full sibs to our bull, Future Focus (owned with ABS Global and Robert Summerford) that is doing such a fantastic job for us. And on top of the normal cattle stuff, the sweet corn is in, being pulled fresh daily, and we have a young man selling it on the main street in Ridge Spring – it is really delicious this year!!! Kevin is off to and American Angus board meeting for a few days and Corbin is attending State FFA convention this week. We are soooo thankful for the rain and look forward to seeing the grass take off!
