Spring Time; Farm
As spring approaches, it’s the perfect time to conduct a thorough inspection of your farm- outbuildings, livestock shelters, machinery, etc. Make sure everything is in a good condition. If equipment needs repair, you will want to contact an expert quickly as they get very busy later in the spring.
#TipsForFarmers: Remember that you may need to feed your livestock a little extra during the wintertime. Strive to feed them at night. Feeding farm animals late in the day during the cold will increase heat production during the night by the activity of eating and ruminating.
It is scientifically proven that bonding with an animal will help you live a happier and healthier life. Our furry friends help us alleviate stress, fight depression, and gain positive energy.

Harvesting In The Fall
Harvesting crops is probably the most popular farm activity in the fall. The important thing to think about is storage needs. There are various ways to store harvested crops- they can be canned, dehydrated, frozen, or can be stored unaltered under the right conditions. Some crops need warm conditions (potatoes, pumpkins) and some cool conditions (cabbage, carrots, onions).
