Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Spring Arrival

We had a new arrival this evening after milking. Blanche, one of our show cows delivered a big bull. We were extremely disappointed because it wasn't a heifer! JW and I had to pull the calf, but Blanche took over and gave him a good start in life. We milked her and then fed him some colostrum before coming in for the night.

Well Kent, if you keep reading this, you may learn a lot more about dairy farming! How close are you to harvesting wheat? I saw in a paper they were hiring truck drivers for the harvest.
