It's been horrible weather here on our smallholding in West Cork, Ireland. We have calves out in the field using the cowbox for a field shelter and we have calves inside the slatted house eating hay, calf crunch and drinking their milk replacer twice a day.
So what have we been up to down on the farm? Number one son came home with a pto driven saw horse. It's the best thing since sliced bread. The tractor (Ford 4600) turns the power take off and that turns two belts that makes the saw spin.
We purchased a trailer load of beam slat wood. The sides that come off the sides of wood beams. It doesn't take long to make a decent pile that fit just nicely in the top of our Stanley range. Anybody else getting their logs ready for Winter?
You would think it's winter wouldn't you? Shame it's only August.
