Sometimes life on the farm can feel a little like groundhog day, each day blends into the last. But more often the variety of task to be attend to means each day is different and the saying ‘variety is the spice of life’ rings true. The last few days have emphasised to me why I love my job. Wednesday I was busy milking our herd and sorting the start of our silage harvest. Yesterday I was in a meeting at the Victorian Agri Biosciences Centre talking about pastures and today I’m back on the farm throwing tyres onto our silage stack to keep the cover in place.
With this silage harvest now completed, fingers crossed the rain forecast for the weekend arrives!

- Impressive storm clouds rolling in before milking this arvo. . #bom❤️weather @bureauofmeteorology #clouldporn #thunderstorm #stormy #paddocktoplate #ausdairy #countrylife #ausdairy #gippslandFingers crossed this is the start of a, 'from little things big things grow' story. These tiny little seedlings will hopefully form part of our cows summer diet. The seed was sown directly into the stubble of a silage crop 6 days ago. I'm impressed how quickly these little forage rape plants have got up and going on only soil moisture.
