Just Another Awesome Thursday!

Yes, as the title states..my Thursday was indeed awesome, this was due to the fact that it was an Ag Skills day on the college farm!

First off we back-lined the new feedlot lambs for lice, next term we will be doing a project on these lambs focusing on their feed conversion rates.

After that I had a crack at sowing oats with the tractor and air seeder which was fantastic until this ‘minor whoops’ occured!..

So with sowing postponed until Monday, we got back to drenching and backlining before feeding the feedlot steers their daily ‘noms’.

Ah! The day felt good to be over..but wait we were wrong, it wasn’t! It was time to bring the crossbreds into the yards for tomorrow’s shearing competition, yes..the crossbreds those people hating, gateway loving crossys! *sigh* there was triumph in the end but it was long awaited!

Aside from a run in with the crossys, it was a great Thursday of skills, there is always something new to learn around here!

Oh and before I go..may I add that last Thursday was also awesome! Got to dress up like a firefighter for the day and learn how to put out all kinds of fires! Another valuable skill to have.
