Today is Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere. This day brings mixed emotions... it means many things, some of which are (in no particular order):
- AI season is officially over and the success of our next calf crop is now in the hands of the bulls.
- On the calendar, the year is more than 1/2 over.
- Today is the longest day of the year and they just get shorter from here on (boooo).
- We are trying to start haying and considering June is typically (and hopefully) a wet month in North Dakota, we are ready to rock and roll, but Mother Nature doesn't think we should be yet.
Brad commented how last year when there were scheduled things that HAD to be done on a specific day, it would rain the night before, but then the day of, the weather would hold and things went relatively smooth. This year has been an entirely different scenario. We have been rained on and blown over at every opportunity this spring. It has been WONDERFUL!
