Seed and calves everywhere – The Leonard Family

This week’s entry was written by Katy Leonard.

In the past month we have been unloading a BUNCH of seed in to the new seed warehouse, which is almost full. We have also been busy every evening tagging our spring calves, which with the weather the way it has been, the calves have been more like winter calves. There for awhile our garage was a baby calf barn it seemed like, from just warming some calves up, to doctoring and nursing them, to just keeping them alive.

But with all of that said, spring calving season is very close to being complete. Last week we took a load of yearling steers, a few cows that lost their

calf, and a bull to the sale. Dad has also tried to strip-till in preparation to plant corn. However, according to the calendar we will be planting late because it has rained and it was snowing this morning.

In the mix of all this, I went to OYE in Oklahoma City and showed a Hampshire ewe, which I placed 5th out of 27 in my class.

This last week Kody, my mom and I have been on spring break. Kody tore out fence and rebuilt it at our rent pasture. Dad is really hoping that the ground will warm up and dry out so he can start planting corn.
