Farm life goes on in the midst of a stressful and uncertain time. Checking cattle several times a day for babies and making sure they are all safe takes up a lot of our time. I’m still working from home and looks like that will last for a while I hope. I feel a lot more safe here on the farm. I only leave the farm to pick up groceries or scripts. Feels so weird to not stop anywhere. I did a drive by yesterday where my niece works just to wave at her. We talk everyday but I haven’t seen any family for several weeks now. I miss my ice cream dates with my little nephew when I pick him up from school on certain days. My husbands birthday was April 1st, we had a great dinner and I baked him a strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. Normally we would have a family get together. I urge you to pray harder than ever before for the healing of our country. I hope you enjoy the pictures of a few of the cows and babies.

Good morning everyone, today is a new normal for me for a while. Working from home for my job and not going anywhere except to pick up occasional groceries and pharmacy and even then having someone bring it to your car, put it in for you and shut the back door of my SUV. This is also weird as I am very capable of taking care of myself but in light of what is happening we can’t be too careful. I hope everyone is staying safe and taking care of themselves as best as possible. We are in the middle of spring Calves right now so at least we have something cute to look at. We are up to about 30 right now with more coming. We have plenty of meat and food so we are lucky. I told my husband no one is coming through this gate except the cows. Please everyone pray for our country and for this horrible virus to dissipate into thin air. Heavenly Father please protect us. Amen.

We are in the middle of fall calving right now. Thought you might enjoy a picture of Lucky Girl's new baby. We raised Lucky on a bottle about 7 years ago and she is very tame, sometimes too tame. She doesn't know she is a big girl now and weighs a LOT so no you can't put your big head in my lap anymore and I have to get on a ladder to hug you Lucky. She sticks her head in the buggy when we are checking cattle to get a treat but all that is all right because we love her and she is still our little girl. She doesn't care if I hug her calf like some of the other girls. See the milk suds on her mouth, just had her first milk.

Did someone say get in single file and Baby O is in the lead. Oh Baby O you have have come a long way from being a preemie and having to be carried out of the field and helped along to having babies of your own and turning into a very good cow. You will never leave the farm
