Getting feed

Chance and I left at O dark thirty this morning and drove back to Hoven, pulling Tates smaller trailer and got some bags of extruded soybean to feed the cows and calves.. it is very high protein and fat and the only grain that doesn’t chance the CLA in beef, which is the good stuff you want. Same as what is in grass/forage fed beef. We really just want the calves to eat it, but until we wean will have to feed the cows also or come up with a way to feed it in creep feeders.. the problem with doing that is you have to put something in it to limit how much they will eat free choice. Doing that could make them sick.

Nice drive back there.. got back home about 2 pm. Unloaded the feed and then too some out and fed them on the ground.. they love it! But I knew they would. I used to feed it some years back.

We picked up a hitch hiker who needed a ride into Eagle Butte.. nice guy but spoke so low it was hard to understand him. Sure a lot of grain standing that hasn’t been harvested yet and bales that haven’t been hauled in or ricked up..

Colder this afternoon with a strong wind.. supposed to stay like that a day or so and then back up into the 50’s by Sunday.
