        Forages are all tucked in for the season at our dairy so there is a bit of time to breath before grain harvest and corn stalk bales.

        Clear my head. My thoughts and ideas do not seem to jell these days with so much of life upended by COVID-19 pandemic information and the ensuing changes.
