I’ve always heard that 90-100 days after a heavy fog we should receive some form of precipitation. Well, we’ve been in a heavy fog off and on since last Friday morning. It’s finally starting to clear up today. Last time I wrote about the fog I don’t think there was much for precipitation 100 days later, but we’ll have to see if it rings true this time!
Last Friday I saw a friend post of Facebook that 100 days from then would be around March 15th, and the first thing that came to my mine was , “Oh great! That’s right when our calving season starts!” I’m sure Kevin will be proud of me when he reads this for thinking that first. 🙂
We’ve calved during snowstorms before, and I’m sure it will happen many more times! I’m not sure anything can beat my first calving experience with Kevin though! We’ll just keep an eye on the forecast and prepare the cattle for a storm if it happens and keep them as comfortable as possible like we did last year during Winter Storm Nika.
I’m speaking at the Iowa Cattle Industry Convention today in Des Moines! I’m on a panel with other cattle producers from Iowa and also Kristin Porter from Iowa Girl Eats. Should be a good panel about speaking up for agriculture! More about it later! Have a great day!
