Down here in south Iowa we've just had a bunch of rain. I guess I'd rather have 5" of rain than 2ft of snow, but all our pastures are insanely muddy. As for feeding hay, I'm feeding 7 bales (1500lb round bales) per day instead of the regular 5. So much of it is just getting trampled in the ground since it's rolled out on the hillsides, since with 500+ animals there's no other feasible way to make sure all get fed. But, cold front came through and it's supposed to get down to 14* tonight and 10* tomorrow night. Time to haul hay while the ground is solid! Also gotta shoot and take 20 buffs to the meat locker on thurs. Fun fun.
If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.
