Corn Silage

The last couple days, Zachary and my Dad have been opening up all the corn fields, harvesting the headlands. Headlands are the perimeter rows of a field. It is good way to judge field conditions in each field. After Saturday afternoon, we determined the corn needs a few more days to dry before continuing the corn silage harvest.

One of the 200ft silo bags we put up. We intend on filling another when we start again, and then fill our upright silo.

Hello! I'm finally getting around to returning your visit. How nice to see a working dairy farm! We sold our dairy herd in 2000 and my husband misses his girls :)
Our corn isn't ready to harvest yet. Won't be long though.
Nice to see the little ones :) Looking after them was one of my jobs.
I have lots of tomatoes to can and a second batch of store bought peaches as well. Making jellies and jams too. It's a busy time!
