The Feed Truck

Here comes the feed truck.

IMG_4179He deliveries 3 tons of cow feed approximately every ten days. He pulls up beside the feed room and moves the auger over the feed door in the roof.

IMG_4180When the door is opened and the auger positioned correctly, he starts to unload the feed.

IMG_4181The feed consists of ground corn, oats, protein pellets, minerals and molasses.  I shovel the feed into the feed cart and feed the grain to the cows.

IMG_4211This is Sheba the cat. She enjoys riding on the feed cart.

I walk in on the right side of the cows and place their feed in the manger.
