The price of cow-raised dairy heifers is not knowing how many pounds will be in the bucket from day to day.  Cool days little Rosa takes extra; she fits her skin like she’s upholstered.

A little rain would be appreciated; the mid-month paddocks are already velvety-green, but the short grass grazed in the last week or so is slow to green up, even when you can see it has gotten higher.  It has caught our eye; there is regrowth, but it lacks that emerald color that means plenty of nitrogen was available for those roots.
