The last few days have been very routine. I milk in the morning and milk in the evening and between milkings I process vegetables from the garden. I have been putting up more tomatoes and peaches and a few lima beans as well. I have been so exhausted by the time I sit down late evening that I have not even posted on my blog for the last couple of days.
Dudley finally has stopped bawling all the time for his momma, but it has taken longer than most of the calves I have weaned. He would not drink the milk I gave him and he ate very little grain. He is just mostly eating hay as there is not any grass for grazing because of the lack of rain we have been having. He was not happy being locked up in the barn, so I had to move Butter and Dixie to the pasture with the other cows (so that Dudley would not nurse on them) and put him in with the two young heifers. He at least seems to like this arrangement better than being by himself in the barn.
