One Season Rolls Into the Next

I must do a better job of keeping up with Dreamy 280’s blog!  So much has happened since my last post!  Fall turned into Winter and the Winter season was kind to us. Patrick and Hope took bred Angus heifers to Denver for the Foundation Female Sale in January and they will plan to go again in 2013.  Winter rolled into Spring which meant that it was calving season.  We had an exceptional calving season and we are very pleased with this year’s calf crop.  Spring eased into Summer and now Summer is here with a vengeance!  My last blog boasted of the semi loads of corn that were leaving our farm fields.  This year’s corn crop will be the exact opposite.  As the summer drought continues it is very unlikely that any corn will be produced from this year’s fields.  The hay crop has been thin as well.  Thankfully, we have a stock of hay from last year. 

Cattle show season is now in full swing.  We have attended the Pioneer Showdown Block and Bridle Show, Spring Preview Show, and the Wisconsin State Shorthorn Show.  Just last week we were in Grand Island, Nebraska for the Junior National Shorthorn Show.  We showed the heifers that Hope took last fall to NAILE as well as a bull.  We had a great show and Hope brought home lots of hardware! 

Our latest addition to the farm has been a beef Meat CSA (Community Supported Agriculture).  CSA shares as selling well and I am enjoying chatting with new customers about our beef products, our farm, and the beef agriculture process.  Please feel free to call if you have any questions regarding Dreamy 280.  We’d be happy to talk with you and answer any questions that you may have. 

Please pray for the farmers across this great country of ours and keep yourself, pets, and livestock safe in this unrelenting heat.  Best Regards, The Schlimgen Family
