Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

How could you not love the smiles of 160  Pea Ridge kindergarten students?
That was my thought as I watched each child take their turn milking 
 Franny, the Arkansas Farm Bureau cow.

                                    I'm so thankful for opportunities to provide information
                                           about agriculture by telling our dairy story
                                            for  dedicated teachers that bring hands on
                                                  learning experiences to their students.

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

Valentines down on the dairy farm come in all shapes,sizes and species.

I'm very thankful for all the Valentines in my life--

the baby calf born this week,

my husband who provided cards and flowers,

my Mother who baked cookies and took the family to dinner,

my family and friends that spent time with me this week,


 Hattie Claire

                                                                my sweetest Valentine !

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

Benton County Judge Barry Moehring signed the official
 proclamation declaring this week as Benton County Farm Bureau Week.
This event is the kick-off to our county membership drive.

                                I'm thankful to be a member of an organization that advocates
                        the interests of agriculture in the public arena,disseminates information
                        concerning the value and importance of agriculture and provides products
                            and services which improve the quality of life for all our members.

Not everyone can be a farmer,
but everyone can be a Farm Bureau member!

Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

Was it a conspiracy or just an invitation to come play in the pasture?

Even pregnant cows resting in the pasture and waiting 
on their delivery date need a little fun!

 I'm thankful for the moments of unexpected humor provided by
                                             these innocent scenes down on the dairy farm.
