This week was an eventful one on the farm. As the weather has begun to warm up and so has the activity on the farm.
This past Sunday, my cousins took their Steers to a show and decided to take a #selfie! Only this was no ordinary selfie:
This weeks good weather also meant it was time to evaluate the health of our winter wheat crop after this brutal winter has passed. So I took out my new crop scouting tool and took to the skies to get a birds eye view of the field. You can watch the crop scouting video here http://youtu.be/6OKMBJl8Wzk
Just like your car or truck, every so often it is time to trade a tractor in for something else that better suits your needs. The “new to us” tractor on the right has a new home here on the farm while the one on the left has a bright future ahead of it on another farm.
This newer model will provide us with a bit more horsepower, better fuel economy and better maneuverability in the fields.
On a parts run to our local tool store I picked up a battery operated grease gun. This is our 2nd one if this style.
We prefer them over other similar models largely due to their quality and battery life.
This week has been a busy week for the seed division of Boucher Farms, called Potential Ag. Not only have we been deliver ins quality seed corn and soybeans to other local customers to plant this season, but in addition we have provided a few farmers with waterway mixes as well which will help control soil erosion and general runoffs from their fields!
There are few things better than watching the sunrise from your front porch on a nice spring day!
Lastly, I highly encourage you to follow us and many other farmers through the planting season by searching for #plant14 on FB, Twitter, Google+ and more. I also created a special place for #plant14 posts on this blog. By following #plant14 you will be able to keep up to date on what is going on this planting season with thousands of farmers all across the globe.
