Down the cow path
As I write this article early Thursday morning, we are finally getting some rain in far southern Bureau County. The rain will be greatly appreciated as the pasture was getting sparse, and the cows were beginning to push fences around the corn fields. We need to get one 40-acre field combined, so we can turn the herd into it and get ready to wean calves Oct. 18. There has been a little harvesting around us, but our corn was testing 35 to 36 percent as of 10 days ago. This welcome rain should get all the beans ready to harvest, so it could be an interesting harvest — maybe corn in the morning and beans in the afternoon.
