Quiet Week

It was a quiet week around the farm. As I moved cattle to new pastures, I had to do emergency fence repair both times due to more ash trees falling. Some fence I have fixed in the same place three times and will likely have to do again. Most of my fence is 35 to 40 years old and is not as flexible as newer fence and will break much more easily. I can’t emphasize enough that if you have dead ash trees around your property, let them fall on their own. They are very dangerous and if you try to cut them, limbs can fall on you or parts of the tree can bust from the vibrations. We refer to these trees as “widow makers” for a reason. So my plan is to keep repairing the fence and fixing it before the cows find the downed fence.
