I wonder how people can still blindly deny that climate change (or global weirding as I like to call it) doesn't exist when the evidence is all around us? Of course, some of that is this misnomer of 'global warming' which oversimplifies the idea that global weather patterns will become more erratic and extreme.
What that means of course is higher costs for us and our customers.
So far, this year looks no different than the previous four - a very wet winter and spring with bitter cold and heavy snowfall, followed by hot, very dry summer months.
This changes our business model into one where supplemental feed is require for 6 or more months out of the year - winter and summer.
As farmers, we watch the weather every day and right now, we're praying for rain!
