Corn Bales—-Thursday, November 30, 2017

Our neighbor is shredding up the corn stalks—dust is flying and food is being prepared for cows

It’s a win-win on many levels.  The land owner doesn’t want cows on the land…he says they damage too much stuff

The farmer, who rents the land, would like to clear up the stalks in some form…either with grazing off the old corn or burning.

The ranchers, who like to have their cows fatten up on last years leaven’s, now gets a chance to have the corn — only in huge bales.

It’s a nice solution for all…the farmer gets the crop cleared off, the land owner doesn’t have to have cows on his land, and the rancher gets the corn stalks without having to trail his cows to the farm ground.

AND the field isn’t burned!  YAY!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Wow your opening picture is just gorgeous! I love the falling snowflakes too. You’re so thoughtful! So happy they can bundle up the corn and use it like that! Thanks Linda!

  2. Interesting use of corn fodder! Around here, we use it for bedding. I always enjoy when the fodder is baled, because it means the last fall task is finally complete, except for cleaning out heifer pens and spreading manure on the cleared fields!
