It’s very, very cold here this morning. We don’t get cold like this here, and with wind chills expected to be down around -30°, I’m worried, worried, worried about the livestock. Chickens are smart enough to stay in. I have no idea what the pig will do. But cows? Cows are not too intelligent about taking care of themselves. I wish they were, but they’re not. I think none of them will be leaving the barn today. It’s not a big barn, but it’s only one day, so I think they can stand it. Otherwise, I think we’ll have frostbite issues, and I’m just not willing to take that chance.
It’ll only take a few minutes to set them for a day indoors, except for water. I didn’t plan on watering them inside (should have) and so we’ll have to carry water to them in buckets. Possibly from the house, if the spigot is frozen.
Better safe than sorry, yes?
