It's beginning to look a lot more like spring with sprigs of green grass and weeds,
new calves and daylight savings time!
Just the mention of daylight savings time brings smiles
to the farmers because it allows them to work so much later
as we begin spring and swing into summer.
After all these years on the farm, I still need at least a
week to adjust to the dark mornings and the attitude adjustment
that comes with giving up that hour of sleep!
I've had a few friends ask how the cows adjust to daylight savings time.
Honestly, the cows are champions of adaptation!
Over the years,
we have tried different ways to adapt to the time change and none
have seemed to really make a difference in how the cows adjust in their daily
activities of eating and producing milk.
If you get down to the real rub, it's probably a bigger
adjustment for the humans on the farm!
Calves don't even consider daylight savings time when
it's time to be born!
I'm thankful for the joy I see from the farmers with the time change
that begins the new season of spring activities down on the dairy farm.
