Happy National June Dairy Month!
It is a privilege for me to let everyone know that it is the perfect month to learn more about the dairy industry, because farmers across the nation are hard at work to make sure their dairy farms are maintained. I recently realized that on our farm we spend around five hours per day personally working with the cows, and two hours are allotted for milking time. The rest of our days are filled with other work just so that we can have those two hours of milking time. The reciprocation for our milk is what keeps our family business running, and it’s only two hours a day.
Farmers work hard to make food for the world be it by wheat, corn, fruits or milk. Take some time this month and learn something about farming, and if you can let a farmer know how much you appreciate being able to have food on your table every night.
Today, Mom, Dad and I attended the Lincoln County June Dairy Breakfast! There were waffles and they were delicious. To all of the people that worked at the breakfast and helped organize it, amazing job. I didn’t see a sad face in the building.
Here is a link about what the Breakfast offered! http://www.wausaudailyherald.com/article/20120531/WDH0402/120531087/Lincoln-County-dairy-breakfast-feature-waffles?odyssey=mod|newswell|text|FRONTPAGE|s
Marathon County also had their June Dairy Breakfast today, and it was a lot bigger. Governor Scott Walker even attended! They featured it at North Central Technical College’s Research Farm for the first time.

We did manage to get some work done on the farm today. While Nathan and I milked cows, Dad baled the six acres I cut yesterday and right this second he is wrapping up a load of them. (He never ever quits.)
See y’all on the web tomorrow night!
