    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.

        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.

    I didn’t grow up in a Christmas card family. But I married into one. And it wasn’t long before sending a Christmas greeting became part of our holiday routine.
