When do you help with chores? I help almost every day, usually on days when I don’t have school and on weekends.
What are your favorite and least favorite chores? I like to feed the cows. I help feed them their TMR. I don’t like sweeping the headlocks and sweeping the feed up closer so the cows can reach it.
What is your favorite animal on the farm? I like all of them, but No. 143 and No. 145 are my favorites. They are really nice. I like No. 143 because she lets me lay on her.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a farmer because it feels like it would be fun.
If you had your own farm, what would it look like? It would be a red barn, and I would have horses and cows and lots of tractors. I like red and orange tractors.
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not in school? I like to ride my bike.
What is your favorite dairy treat? I like vanilla ice cream with M&Ms.
What is the best thing about growing up on a dairy farm? I get to see my mom a lot, and I get to ride on the tractor when they are chopping and baling.
