Before we get ready for a Thanksgiving trip, we fill the car with gas and check the tire pressure. We try to shake the fall cold or flu that has arrived at the doorstep along with colder temperatures so that we don't share it with our family across the miles.
Our cows have been making a journey, too, but their destination isn't hours away. They are all home from summer pastures. After their arrival closer to home, they are dining at a banquet with the silage, alfalfa and sudan we've harvested this year.
But before their short journey, they needed a visit to the doctor. Rather, the doctor came to them. We had two different days when veterinarians from Prairie Vista Vet Clinic in Hutchinson came calling to give our "ladies" the once over. They got "preg checks," making sure they were carrying the next little bundles of joy that will begin arriving come February.
