Vet visit

Welcome back to the Wagnerfeed. I took a bit of a break from posting but I'm ready to tell a few more stories so here we go for 2012!

This week we had our veterinarian come by for the winter herd check. As everyone in these parts know this has been a very unusual winter in that we have hardly gotten any snow and even fewer days below freezing. While it is hard to cheer against mild weather there are some detriments to not being a "real" winter. For the livestock, it is tough on them to have big swings in temperature and conditions. When we swing from 50 degrees one day and then have 25 the next the bacteria have a hayday and pneumonia becomes a real problem. I'm happy to report that everyone (bovine) passed the check-up.
