Road trip

Tanya and I are back from our three day road trip up north to Chernihiv Oblast. We took the bus to Kremenchuk on Monday to help our friend Volodya celebrate his birthday.  We stayed with Volodya and Oksana that night and next day with Volodya driving we left at 6:00 am to drive to meet with his client. 

The main company farms about 100,000 ha over several locations in Ukraine.  The man we met with manages three farms with a total of two or three thousand beef cattle.  Not sure how many mother cows.  The old Soviet system was long on total numbers as a count.  Useless in terms of information but impressive to those who know nothing about cattle.

Once I get pictures sorted and caught up on emails, I will post a bit about our trip.
