    The month of December can be a good time for reflection. I am inclined to think about where I have been and what is ahead as I go about taking care of the livestock and people in my life.

    Communication skills have been on my mind lately. Farm meetings, texting to get bull calves sold and interacting with people as we go about our daily farm routines are some examples of how we use interpersonal skills to give and receive information.

    My hobby during this season is cow shows. I love to be present at the shows or watch the live streams from the shows when they are available.

    Not surprisingly, I sometimes feel I am obsessed with milk on our farm and household. I haul it, pour it, feed it to calves from a bottle, watch it stream from our cows’ udders into the milking system and listen to it get pumped into a tanker every other day.

        Cheese is my cow, and I am her person. She and her twin sister, Cream, (from Bagel, of course) were standouts from day one.

    Being in the same room while talking with friends and listening to speakers in person has not happened very often over the last two years.
