Deff, where abouts in central Montana are you?The rain's been missing us lately. We started swathing hay and I tried to bale yesterday. A shower hit that was just enough to wet the hay down followed by 50 mph winds that messed up the windrows. There is still a stiff wind blowing so I haven't gone out to see what can be salvaged. I may have to replace the leaky kitchen faucet my wife has been complaining about today. I hate plumbing!!!
A special message for Leanin and a word of hope for all of us surviving triple-digit temperatures in desert country.101 today. Stiff south wind. No rain in sight. Reservoir is empty. 1st crop (only crop) was about 2/3rds of a normal year. Last year was the worst I’d seen in 54 years. I think it’s worse now. I’m an upbeat and positive person by nature. But it’s grim for the hope of keeping my cows this winter. I’ll keep fighting until I can’t.
