January 2014 Newsletter

January1

Happy New Year 2014!  I hope that this new year brings you closer to your goals!

Oh boy, 2013 ended with a bang for us here.  The biggest news, of course, is that our daughter, Florence Vee Anderson was born on Christmas morning!  It was the most wonderful Christmas gift that I could have imagined.  We are recovering slowly but surely.  Miss Florence has already made her way around the barnyard with me.  She’s very content when she is up moving about, I imagine that is a trait that she got from her very active mother!

In barnyard news, we had two calves born in December as well.  Both cows are doing well and their milk is now in the general milk supply.  My Jersey, Reggie, produces a lot of cream, so you will likely see an increase in your cream line over the coming weeks.  These fresh cows have allowed me to dry off Fancee, who is due a break before she has her next calf in March.  These calves are are sired by our bull and they are hairy, just like him.  They look like walking teddy bear calves!

Hopefully you received and read the newsletter last month with the information about the bulk tank.  It is due to arrive in at the end of January.  Please let me know if you have any questions while we work through this new process.

I am still waiting for news from the state on the lawsuit front.  I promise to keep you up to date when there is news.

Have a safe and Happy New Year.

Enjoy your milk!
