Farming in February

What’s it like to farm in Oklahoma in the winter?

I know several farmers not much further north than me who have snow on the ground all winter and bring their animals into a barn for the cold.

We do not have to do that. At the moment my farmer is streaming on fertilizer for himself and his father. Soon he will need to lay down herbicide on the crops they do that with.

The winter wheat is finally growing after a really dry fall where it didn’t grow. The cattle are out on that as pasture. The fields are beginning to green up. The cattle are getting fat on the sugar in a growing pasture. They sometimes even get a hay treat. And we get to rest.

Happy reading!
