Notes from the Chief…. Hey folks, did you miss me? Again, I can admit fault when I screw up and forget to send in my report. I took last Thursday off and by the time I remembered on Friday morning, I was not able to “git ‘er done”. With that I did run into one avid reader who brought some light to the old Huakebo house. I was informed that Mr. Hesby was the first teacher to live in the house and the now retired Dr. Hendrickson was also a tenant. He was also the one who snuck in the hot plate for the guys to cook on. Another tidbit of information I learned was that old house was owned by Vern Daggett before he built across the street. Quite a lot of information can be learned by running into a friend at a
parking lot in Perham.
Not a lot going on at the farm as the haying season came to an abrupt halt. We have some round bales
to haul home yet and I hope that is done soon. The cows are on the pasture and some is better than others, but we still need some rain. The corn will be chopped a few weeks earlier than normal and some have already done that. Usually, we leave the bulls in until Labor Day weekend but with the hay
shortage, this may be the year to pull the bulls earlier. This will mean a few more cows may not be pregnant, but this will be the time to send them down the road so we don’t have to feed the later calvers. Not sure what we will do yet. We do have a pen of Holstein steers that are very close to slaughter weight. We ran out of corn in the silo but were able to scrounge a couple loads from another farmer. We have never raised steers to fats before, so this will be an interesting couple of months when they start to finish out. I will keep you posted on the goings on at the farm and hope you all have a good week.
