We toured a 2500 head dairy near Souix City. They sell all their milk to Blue Bunny for ice cream. This was a very impressive farm! Very high tech and perfectly clean!
I'm sad to report that our beloved goose was killed this week. He got to the point were he wouldn't go in his pen at night and a coon got him. Amelia blames me for his death. She said if I would have put him in his pen the coons wouldn't have eaten him.
During a quiet evening you will usually see a deer hanging out in the bean field. Last week I saw a group of 5 (2 little bucks and 3 does) grazing along the field. They like to come up to the yard and hang out by the chicken shed. They don't seem to be too afraid of me, in fact they snort loudly and look and me like I'm in their territory.
Elijah eating his first corn on the cob. Unfortunately with only three teeth eating the corn off the cob was little time consuming. After he had his fun I ended up cutting the corn off the cob for him.
