They came, they went, they learned!

Whew! What a day! 42 preschoolers later, I am exhausted! It was busy morning getting ready for the preschoolers before they arrived at the farm. Add to that the energy needed to keep up with 42 4 and 5 year olds, and needless to say it took a lot out of us today. The weather was beautiful and the kids were great! So many awesome questions asked. A BIG thanks to our 2 dairy princesses who came with us today for the visit! Some of the funny questions and comments are listed below....and pictures will be coming soon....

  • "Is that a boy cow, it only has one earring? Girl cows should have 2 earrings"-pointing at a cow's ear tag.
  • "My favorite part was milking the baby calves"-trying to tell us about feeding the calves milk in a bottle.
  • "How come they poop on the ground?"-because cows can't be potty trained yet ;)
  • "Is she bleeding?"-pointing at the teat dip on the cow's teat, which is dark brown colored.
  • "Whoa, she made a mess! Who's going to clean it up?"-when a cow pooped in the parlor.
  • "Can we walk in the poop too?"-wanted to walk in the scrape alley with the cows.
  • "That feed stinks-how do they eat that?"-pointing at the TMR, smelling like silage.

I write this blog to share my passion for my cows and farming, please be respectful of that. I reserve the right to delete those comments which portray hate, call names, and are out right disrespectful. If you have an honest question, I will respond, to explain what we do on our farm, why we do it and how we do it. Please read with an open mind. My time to blog is short, as most of our days are spent caring for our beloved cows. Thank you!
