With mud puddles in abundance and the crop fields too wet for
planting, it's easy to forget how fortunate we are for the
clean water our cows drink everyday.
Water is an important nutrient in the cow's diet and without
the availability of at least a bathtub full of water everyday,
a milking cow will produce less milk.
Even though these cows at the water tank are
actually at rest in the pasture waiting to have a baby,
water is important as they prepare for delivery.
I'm thankful for these daily reminders of how blessed we
are with the basics of everyday life down on the dairy farm
for our opportunity to share our blessings with
the next generation!
