Farm Lessons Posted on November 18, 2015 Our kids are growing up almost as fast as our heifer calves. Each day is a new lesson on the farm. Learning to care for our animals is important to being a good farmer, no matter how old you are. Dawson tries his hand at milking. Leeland, Shane and Kirsten’s Grandson, helps, too. Molly also lends a hand as well. Dawson likes to help gather the girls when it’s milking time. And he’s been known to give Annabelle a good brush while the others are being milked. There’s always more work with a new calf on the farm. Wren gave birth to a little heifer yesterday, who was named Stormy for the weather she came into. Our friend Dustin came back for another lesson in hogs. He showed precision skill in neutering boars. Dawson knows making sure the hogs get a meal is important. Leeland held his first pig, and proved to be quite the skilled pig-catcher. Molly cuddles with a piglet. As the piglets get bigger and stronger, they can come outside.
