Baling the ditch hay

I stopped to talk with Bill and Nella when they were out baling the ditch hay. Bill says he always likes to have some small square bales in the yard. He tells me, you never know when you'll need a few bales. There are always days in the winter when you have to get a cow and calf into the barn, and you have to feed and water them for a few days.

Farming is a way of life for Bill and Nella

For Bill and Nella, farming is a way of life. It is just part of their daily living. When a neighbor has to take a few days off to take in a wedding or visit family out of state, Bill and Nella step in and take care of his farm for him. Whether it's feeding and watering cattle or just looking after the farm, Bill and Nella just find it the neighborly thing to do.
