Gourmet Breakfast

4 Apr

Every morning my husband wakes up early to make a gourmet breakfast.

Not for me. It’s for the cattle in the feedlot.

A carefully formulated ration of ground corn, silage, distiller’s grains and ground hay get mixed up in the feed trucks for the eating pleasure of our bovine customers.

The cattle give it a 5-star rating.

We custom feed cattle for several customers through the winter. Most will soon go out to summer grass to continue growing. They are usually sold in the fall to feeders who feed them to a good weight for beef production. This is often called feeding “fat cattle” or “finishing”.

Until then, we’ll keep the bunk buffet open and the four-legged customers coming back for more.


1 Corinthians 10:31

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.

We were gone for a couple days and when I got back to the farm it looked like it had exploded! The hot weather has the corn growing so fast you can almost hear it. And as I drove home from hoeing the garden I saw a few tassels peeping out.


The corn tassels are what pollinate the “silks” on the corn cobs that create the kernels. If you want to know more, here is a funny (but accurate) post about how corn pollination works from Dairy Carrie: http://dairycarrie.com/2013/07/17/corn-sex-with-photos/.

Our corn is raised for livestock feed to help keep the world supplied with delicious, nutritious beef!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,


[The Lord will create] a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain. – Isaiah 4:6
