And I am Off

On my internship that is. Gone are the days I work solely on the home farm. For the next four months I will also be working full time on a neighboring herd. They are about 15 miles or so from here and are nice enough to be really giving me help here, as the college wanted to send me out into the upper mid west. I will thankfully still be able to feed the home cows, and mostly be able to calve out the majority of the herd. I won't be able to do all the night checks, but I can do at least some of them. I am dreading calving in my Jerseys. Two are due in March, and one is due in May. Then there are the majority of my top show cows. They are due March, April, May, and June. I may not be able to do this very well!

I will give everybody updates as I go. And I promise to do as much as I can for pictures of all the new babies!! Wish me luck, I think I will end up needing it.
