This photo was from 2008 at our county fair Shorthorn open class show. The term "daddy's little girl" definitely applies to me, from my relentless need to work and complete tasks, hatred of coconut, and a passion for the agriculture industry.
The photo on the left is of Bob when he invited us into his home to enjoy breakfast! He was telling us about the chocolate milk his friend's dairy produced. The image on the right is of Adrian when he was giving us a tour around the dairy farm. You could clearly see the passion each of the them had as they showed us around the farm. They prove that collaboration is the key to a working family.
I will discuss details about the dairy in a later post, but I wanted to share how important the father is in a farming operation.I know on our operation, it would not be the same without my dad there. Just as when he was growing up, my grandfather was the head of the farm and still farms today. I know many other farms are successful without a father figure, but I feel blessed to have an experience with one in my life.
In my eyes, farming families rely on fathers.
