Snow

Back in the snow

Back in the snow

It hasn’t warmed up in Manitoba since the last farming selfie was sent in.

The temperature in this photo sent in by Mary Paziuk was a bone chilling -23oc.

Grass doesn’t grow in the winter, especially not under snow!

To replace the grass Mary is feeing her cows with dried grass (hay) which will have been harvested in the summer and stored in a barn before being fed to the cows in the winter.
