After a very mild first 2 weeks of winter we are finally experiencing some cold weather. Not quite below zero yet, but we normally have a few of these single digit nights followed by teens during the day throughout November. It really is nice to feel like its ok to stay inside for at least the morning since its so cold outside. Time to hibernate and get a little office work done.

The great news is that we are really conserving hay. So far we’ve only fed about 10 square bales to the cows and about 4 a day to the sheep for the last 12 days. Pretty good considering we normally feed hay thru most of November. At this rate we’ll make it thru the winter with hay to spare. But winter is young…
