Yep my father-in-law came back to help plant while Mark and I worked on sorting cows and began the process of hauling cows to grass. But this time I was armed with my camera and got some PICTURES!!!!!! It was really hot on Sat so we didn't sort too many cows (we didn't want to over heat the cattle) and when we got done Mark jumped in the tractor and finished planting what was left of the seed we had. We were a couple bags short so again our seed dealer being so dedicated to serving his customers sent out some more seed Sunday morning with his hired man who also helped us finish planting while we hauled more cows out to grass!!! In 3 days we got the planter hooked up, adjusted, all of the seed in the ground, all the cows sorted, 1 pasture filled with pairs and we each put in a full day work at our "day jobs". We couldn't have gotten so much accomplished without the help from our family. This is what American Family Farms is about. Coming together to make sure we all have a chance of succeeding!!!!

to make sure it is putting the right amount of seeds in the ground and that
the level is adjusted properly!
