Brian Woodham/Driskell Cotton Farm and his son Jimmy, finished bailing hay (grass the cows did not eat) and hauling it away. He was happy with the 71 bales. The yearlings had gained about 300 lbs each. They will be on their way to Nebraska next week.
His crew hauled out old troughs, the water tank in the ditch behind Peggy, and pulled the tall leaning-telephone-pole post the “Keelies” (Red Tail Hawks) perched on to hunt.
The guys closed up the portable catch pin and Brian pulled it out. The field looks like a mowed lawn behind the pond with its fairly consistent covering of small grass its first spring.
