Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

                                     Making sure we provide plenty of hay and grain for
                             our cows and calves  is an everyday job down on the dairy farm.
                                                       On this last day of February,
                                     with the temperature hovering  around 22 degrees,
                                              the calves were enjoying their hay buffet.

It's obvious that our farm dog, Bea, does not appreciate this  calf contentment.
The minute she spots the calves gathered in one spot, 
she assumes her job is to scatter them.
Doesn't she look proud?

Although I'm not always appreciative of her perceived farm dog duty,
I am thankful for her ability to make me laugh and smile on the ordinary days
down on the dairy farm.

Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

It's a special delivery just in time for Valentine Day!

It's just one of several deliveries that we have had this 
week down on the dairy farm.
I'm thankful for the day of warmer temperatures and rays 
of sunshine that warmed our hands and hearts
for the many Valentines that will be made 
with milk chocolate  and cream pies!

Happy Valentine Day!

Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

                                 Benton County Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee
                                celebrated the Centennial of John Brown University  by sharing
                                  information about agriculture  in Benton County during the
                                           early days of the school and current practices.

Presenting our history book about Arkansas Farm Bureau
seemed a perfect kick-off to our Farm Bureau Membership week!

We enjoyed talking with students about agriculture 
and appreciated their interest in learning a few new skills...
like milking Frannie the Arkansas  Farm Bureau cow!

                                                I'm thankful for the volunteer opportunities
                                                       that provide smiles for all of us!
