"This shed we are building is 38 feet wide by
140 feet long on the west side of the cow yard,
open on the other side. We're calling it
"The Ladies Lounge." We need more room
to handle the big cows in the number we need.
We're not using the round barn much for
night housing in winter only enough of the
little cows to keep the place from freezing up.
We milk two shifts, from 80 to 100 cows,
and get from 2500 to 3500 pounds per day,
depending on the number milked. The cows
are considerably better than they used to be,
due to American Breeders Service, I guess.
Erv is shingling the Lounge; he says
it's like peeing in the ocean."
