Last week I told you I would show you how we trim hooves, but we needed grain for the animals this week.
I thought you might like to see where we get our grain, and a little bit about how we pick it up.
|We drive down to Leland Mills in Spanish Fork.|
That's not our truck, there are many farmers who buy their grain here.
|This is opposite of the store.|
These are grain elevators.
This is where all the grain is stored.
This is what a grain elevator looks like on the inside.
|The arm of the truck pours the grain into the barrels while they are in the back of the truck.|
It doesn't take long to fill them.
|We need grain for the goats, too.|
The barrels have to be unloaded from the truck and taken into the big grain barn.
We can't drive the truck into the big barn, it's not allowed.
|The grain barn is huge! There are piles of grain in different areas.|
Each area has a different kind of grain.
|The grain piles have walls between them so they don't mix too much.|
|They weigh the truck again. The new weight tells them how much|
grain we got for the goats.
