A grower who’s interested in a Pro Sort system joined us at a site near West Point, NE today for a barn tour.

Corn-6

It was a beautiful day for a drive.

I love rural America. Except when there’s no data service. Then I want to throw my phone out the window.

Today-web

It was warm out so all the curtains on the barns were dropped.

Wellweb

A new well was going in. The rural water system that the farm used to be on wasn’t cutting it.

Pigs-4

It’s a wean-to-finish facility and new pigs arrived just a few days ago, so I went straight to the nursery to say hi. They don’t sit still for pictures very well but they sure are cute.

Pigs-2

Piglet snuggles! I really can’t get enough of the little ones.

Pigs-1

Pigs are super curious and always want to know what you’re up to.  This is a large pen style barn, so all the pigs live together in a big group. You can see all the fans running on the back wall – great ventilation in there.

Chad checking on the pigs. He’s so handsome.

Pigs-3

Time for a snack. They love their wet/dry feed.

Pigs-5

Enjoying the sun and breeze. Check out the piggy kiss just right of center. Hee.

Corn-5

Corn got planted late (hello, snow on May 1??) but it’s looking good!

Corn-1

Honestly, I know very little about corn (I’m from Kansas and grew up around golden wheat and red purple milo) but I know pretty green leaves and blue skies when I see ’em.

Stay tuned – soon we’ll meet the farmer whose barn we visited today.
