What does everyone have for winter chores. These are what keep my mind on spring and keep me away from just sitting and watching tv for a few hours a day.

Nice looking group at the feeder.

I have ten steers on feed, 45 layers, 2 barn cats, although I didn't see hind nor hair of either of the cats today. I check in on everyone about 3 times although most of the time I'm out working around anyway on something. I have a wagon out front I sell corn and straw on to keep stocked up. I have about three drives other than my own to keep plowed. I sat in my chair at my command center today though and watched 9-10 inches of snow come down today so I'll be busy tomorrow.

Got 11 head of these hay burners that I check on twice a day. Drop off a hay bale in the feeder every other day or so. Chopped oats twice a day. Should be 3 or 4 calves between now and spring.

there is not nearly as much there as it looks. I shred 6-7 lbs of hay a day for them. Problem is I do it every 2-3 days so it looks bad but they clean it up pretty good. I bought some 12-1500 lbs bales for $15 each so I let them have some of it as bedding. At the end of a year of feeding I have about 5 bales worth they waste so I think i'm doing ok. When it warms up a bit I will feed in the far field and then they get a new swath every time so there is no build up. What you see there is from Jan1st till now. Been -30C for most of the time and I feed a little heavy then. Another week and weather should get close to above freezing here and then they will get a little less.

Honestly, my only winter chores are to drive over and plow out the drives (that will be a big job come Sunday), make sure the heat is working in the buildings that have/need it, pay the winter taxes (just did that). Mostly I work my other job and think of Spring. The kids take care of anything else that comes up.

On occasion I will take a day off CPA'ing and go cut some firewood just to get some air and feel the sun.

Nice looking critters. That corn seems to be agreeing with them!

I help Mrs. shovel out 6 horse stalls every morning, and do other projects as the come up. Otherwise, just do "retired stuff".
