It's been another busy week @OakfieldCorners...from cows being cared for, to Spring Sensation Sale preparations, to another round of IVF in the new barn. It's going to be a busy spring!
Spring is nearly here and the clock is rapidly ticking towards the 2015 Spring Sensation Sale! If you are a student who is looking for some work over spring break, we could use the help. Contact Alicia, Jonathan, or Kelly directly or via the Oakfield Corners Facebook page for more details.
Beautiful sunset to end the day

Oh baby it's cold outside! The temperature may be below zero, but the crew at Oakfield Corners works hard to keep the cows happy and produce the best quality milk regardless of the weather
Another day comes to an end in Oakfield
It's always good to see friends from other parts of the world. We enjoyed hosting a Japanese delegation today with the Nosawa and World Wide Sires group.
Tempo and Tassel took a (rare) break from eating to mug for the camera.
Hey there...check me out!
The girls are liking this new eating while milking situation!

Comfortable cows are happy, more productive cows. We're ripping out some older mattresses and replacing with deep bedded stalls at one of the farms. You can see the girls anxiously awaiting their new beds!
We're getting closer to a functioning parlor...it can't happen fast enough!
