Watching my family of farmers work together vaccinating and worming
cattle with our veterinarian is one of my favorite spring
time pictures down on the dairy farm.
These periodic checkups and vaccinations work to prevent illness
and insure high-quality milk from healthy cows.
After receiving vaccinations, the calves are sorted and moved to new pastures.
When moving calves to new pastures it is not uncommon for
them to find the hole in the fence that the farmer missed seeing.
I'm very thankful for the great neighbors that live around us.
They not only call to let us know we have cattle out but offer help
in rounding them up so we can haul them home until the fence is repaired.
There's no doubt, dairy farmers are on call 24/7.
