Dairy Farm Heaven

Today my son was living the dream and spent the entire day at a Dairy farm.  He got a tour of the entire operation. He saw the calves, the milking equipment, the newborns, the silage, grain - everything.  The farmer gave him an in-depth and thorough look at the life of a dairy farmer.  My son learned so much and just had the very best day ever.  I asked him what his favorite part of the day was and a close second was the made from scratch farm lunch.  He got farm raised beef vegetable soup, homemade bread, homemade applesauce, apple butter and cookies AND cold FRESH milk. It was a feast custom made for my boy. His favorite thing was of course the entire day but the thing he was most surprised was when he got to be a part of the artificial insemination process.  My son said he did not expect that today he would be wearing gloves up to his shoulder and having his arm you know where - but it is all part of the dairy life.  When I say he saw it all - he really did!  There was even a calf born today! His dream to become a farmer got a little stronger today.  Power to the Farmer!
