The heifers enjoying there lunch after they got home.  I told my Darling Wife that this is the first hay that I put up in 2008 that I have had to feed.  So far everything I have fed was put up in 2007 or earlier.  My dad always said, "Hay in the stack is better than money in the bank."  I agree.  Taken 02/01/2009.
