June is starting out with a sunny, crisp morning. I imagine the valleys had frost earlier, but we seem to have escaped it this time. It was 38 on the front porch at 5 AM.

Haying proceeds between showers. No rain overnight, but the forecast is for showers this afternoon.

We had two more bull calves over the week end. We're running at 80% bulls this year - not a good sign for our continued presence as a viable dairy farm a few years down the line. I asked Stan if he thought Someone was trying to tell us something and he answered like a true farmer: "Yeah, use sexed semen!"
