MR, we're not quite as wet as you or others on here, but we're still wet, wet, wet! It sure would be nice to be able to start haying one of these days soon! Between us and the best friend, we have around 1000 acres to put up.

Here at our place there is misty rain tending to showers. A cool easterly wind with the forecast of moderate to heavy falls over the next two days.
We haven't had a frost for over tens days. We haven't seen much sun over the past week. We had a cold blast of sleet and some snow in our district (no snow at our place only a few flakes) during the last week. Our gullies are trickling along nicely. There is a hint of greenery about the paddocks,especially in the sheltered areas.
Our South Devons and Herefords are calving well. Our Brahmans don't earnestly start till about September (when its warming up a bit).
Our lawn is nice and green and the flowers are blooming quite well. Will prune the roses in about a months time. We have pansies and calendulas in bloom at the minute. We have lots of daffodils in the ground as well as ranunculi,cottage gladioli,ixias,babianas,dutch iris,star lavender,crocus and lots of other bulbs. Our garden is about an acre and a half. We have lots of native and deciduous rees. We have about 100 roses. In about 18months to 2 years we will open our garden to the public once a year.
Here in Australia they have a thing called the open garden scheme. It has gardens open at various times and various areas at leats once a year. All the money for admission goes to charity.
We have a local garden that is 8 acres in size. It is magnificent,its one of Australias renowned garden for perennial plants. I enjoy going each year just to see how much they have added to it. This husband and wife team have helpers though which does detract from things a bit. My garden just has me (and my wife who does the watering).
Enough ramblings.
Hope we see the sun for a day or two before the next cold snap next week.

Cowgal, if you stick around for a while you will see that there are times that we take some pretty good (or bad, depending on the situation) swipes at each other. But I think that all of us would be more than happy to open our doors to the others on the board.

And get ready, cause you'll get your share of knocks, too. Helps to have thick skin.

HAY MAKER, if y'all ever show up here in Ontario, I let you in too, but not till you got the good dustin' down that I think you deserve! :x :lol: :lol: :lol:

P.S. - Cowgal I like your attitude.

ditto, here, cowgal!! Ever find yourself headed down my way, let me know!! we can sit and laugh over a cup of coffee!! Lots of good folks on this board....many different opinions and all with the same basic interests....CATTLE, HORSES AND DOGS :wink: :wink: :wink:

Welcome aboard, Cowgal, love your posts!!!

Manitoba Rancher- More on the way-- Thunderstorm this morning gave us .15 more-- then the storms rolled in again tonite and gave us another .35--Up north we got over an inch -But some areas again got 2-3".....All headed northeast toward you...

Good news is that the 15 day long range forecast is predicting this pattern is done and we will get a couple of dry weeks and temps in the 80's- if the ground ever drys out we can get to haying...

Hope you start drying out........

Thanks OT,


Its so darn wet here now that the cows we have left in the small pasture that we are still feeding, we have to keep the 4-wheel drive tractor sitting standby to pull the MFD chore tractor out when we get stuck. Tonite we had to pull it out after we bellied the chore tractor out. The ground is saturated. We are to the point where we wont be able to get to those cows for water. Talked with an agrologist this morning and he said a lot of crops in this area are almost a write off now as the plant cant handle growing in such saturated soil. This next rain could be the finish of our crops. There a lot of people in this area that are in the same boat. I think we should switch and start growing rice!!! :shock:

Feast or Famine- drought or deluge-never seems to be a happy medium...Something for thought- in years past when we ended up with late seeding we never went wrong with oats- if nothing else it could always be hayed.......

I heard on the radio the other day where they were saying because of the weather that Canada was going to be way down on wheat harvest this year- possibly 5-10% below normal :???: .... Sure hasn't shown up in wheat prices tho as down here they have been going down $.05-15 a day for the last few days.......

Theres a pile of unseeded acres here in Manitoba and what did get in the ground was just mudded in. Canola is the same way dropped $30 per tonne for fall futures in a few days......Think traders are taking advantage of the situation. :roll:

Goodmorning all,
Well the sun is not out, more rain on the way! Keeps the pesty flies at bay though! Looks pretty ominous to the West.
We used to be strickly grain farmers, moved to higher ground after the flood in 97 and now are mainly into cattle. Still crop a bit though. Has anyone grown corn for their cows to graze in fall and winter? We were thinking about giving it a whirl.

Hey Manitoba Rancher are you in the Red River Valley?

Just heard that in northcentral SD, 9" fell in an already wet spot, just about ruins crop and hay for this year. Cattle can't find the grass for the water. Seems like it comes too much at once 3"+ to an already wet spot.

Our son got out of school on May 18th. He has enjoyed his break from school, and we have enjoyed his company (plus all the work he has helped us to do :wink: ). When do your kids have to go back to school?

Yikes DH (darlin husband) was talking to another cattle guy who was looking for 15 of his cows. The electric fence was under water so off they wandered. Water is getting so bad that he was traveling by boat. The rest of the herd that was in the pasture look like they are on a island. The sun has just come out here.
:shock:

Cowgal: "You ride horses?"

We use horses quite a bit on our ranch. We don't own any ATVs, so we depend on horses to get us around and work the cattle. Actually, thinking about it, we flat couldn't operate without them.

I confess, I did almost buy a mule a week and a half ago. It just wasn't in the cards to come home with a long-eared friend, because my bidding arm seemed to lose strength and wouldn't raise anymore. I've even been guilty of riding an occasional Appaloosa, Paint, Morgan and Tennessee Walking Horse. Hope I'm not so open minded that my brains have fallen out. :shock:

Speaking of Morgans, one of the very best horses my dad had through the years was one fourth Morgan and three-fourths Quarter Horse. This sorrel gelding, named Penny, was a cow cutting fool. He was tough, with endurance galore, and was just a real good all-around ranch horse. The horse never became overly gentle, but if you were a good rider he was an excellent partner to help get just about any cattle job done with.
