~Silos and Jerseys~

Here is a picture of some Jersey cattle on our farm. The pastures are so green compared to what they are now. I like Jersey cattle and I also like Brown Swiss, they are gentle. The heifers we have on our farm are dairy cattle.

Today I have been going through all my pictures on my laptop. I have too many pictures on my computer and it was running slow. It has taken alot of time deleting files and reorganizing files. I found a picture of our silos that I took last summer. We used both of these silos when Tom and I milked cows. The silos were used to hold our corn silage and haylage to feed our cows. Tom would harvest our corn and hay and fill the silos. I'm so glad that we don't have to use them anymore. It seems like there was always something the matter with them and Tom would have to climb up the ladder to fix the problem. It was scary and I was always afraid something would happen. They do look pretty awesome though.


  1. Julie...I love the look of your dream! I know it is a lot of hard work, but those cows look so cute! You have a gorgeous piece of land in my favorite state!


  2. Living in the country is a dream of mine. At this point in my life, though, I don't think it will happen. I'm just too much of a city girl in that I don't want to live on a well, septic and propane. But it's still a nice dream and dreams are what keeps us going.

    Your pictures of your farm are so pretty. Love the silos also. I spent summers on my aunt and uncle's farm so these pictures being up a lot of memories for me.
