Welcome to the farm

Good afternoon cattle folks! Over the past few weeks, Kevin and I have been very busy moving into our new house and working on fence. So far we about 80% of the fence work done. Whewww, what a relief. Fencing isn’t all that bad, but we are so anxious to get some black angus cows on the farm that we cannot stand it. We work on the fence on the weekends when we do not have cattle shows. We have three heifers that are being shown  at local and state shows this year. We enjoy going to the shows to watch the 4-H and FFA students and support them. I love blowing, clipping, grooming, and fitting show cattle!

We have enjoyed having our family and friends over to see our new home and farm. So far, my parents and grandparents, aunt and uncle have been over along with his daddy. Everyone loves our farm and they are all excited about this adventure. We hope to have cattle here on the farm in the next month. We have a lot of grass stockpiled for the cattle and know that they will love the farm as much as we do.

Not to mention all the demands of our jobs we have been busy around here. He was been doing training with his job  and I have been doing various FFA activities. My father and I took a group of students to Fountain Run, Kentucky to judge beef cattle at the CPC Field Day Judging Competition. Our team placed 2nd out of 46 4-H and FFA teams there. We also had the opportunity to tour the feed mill and livestock areas there as well.

We look forward to a week of more fencing, meetings, FFA functions, and a cow show this coming weekend. However, we are most excited about having our family friend and my second father, Mr. Tommy over for the weekend. Until next time, have a great week!
