    Every year, I need to be reminded that holiday treat making is more about the experience and memories than it is about the finished products. I have to put my perfectionism aside and accept that what ends up on the cookie tray might not look as perfect as I want, but the treats will be enjoyed all the same.

    As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. We have reached the end of a very good chapter in the story of our farm.

    One of the greatest characteristics of the dairy community is that we always find ways to help each other in times of need. As I mentioned in my last column, sometimes the people who help us are family, friends and neighbors, sometimes those people are folks we hardly know.

        One of the characteristics you hear over and over about rural Americans – and especially members of the dairy community – is our inclination to help each other in times of need. Sometimes our needs are small; sometimes our needs are large.

        A few weeks ago, Dan bumped into me in the milk house.
        “Whoops. Is that your bad shoulder?” he immediately asked.
        “Nope,” I replied. “I don’t have a bad shoulder anymore.”

        Dairy farmers talk a lot about growth: how our crops are growing (or not growing, as is the case this year); how our calves and heifers are growing; and, hopefully, how our balance sheets are growing.

    When explaining TMR to people who don’t farm, dairy farmers often compare it to a great big salad.

    May: the fifth month of the year.
    Mayhem: violent or damaging disorder; chaos.

    We live on a paved county road, but there’s a gravel township road across the road from our driveway. This gravel road is where I do a lot of my walking and running.

        I haven’t visited a dairy farm yet that isn’t also home to another species: cats. When we bought our dairy farm, it came with a couple of barn cats. It wasn’t long before several more moved in. Then, as you can imagine, those barn cats led to barn kittens.
