This week the farm has been busy hauling grain into our local grain elevator and local ethanol plants, as well as selling some hogs. Both of these things went very smooth due to the lack of snow! Most winters we are busy blowing snow so we can get to the grain bins to get the corn out to haul. We also spend a lot of time moving snow so we can have enough room at our hog site for semi-trucks to get near the loading shoots at the hog buildings. We've only moved snow a couple of times this winter, and even though I have missed seeing a white cover of snow on the ground, it sure has made things nice for getting things done this winter on the farm.
