I took this picture earlier this fall. It’s one of my favorites because it shows the cow in her most essential role, as a mother. And as a mother myself, I can relate.

Sure, the machinery and crop production is very important, but it’s the cattle that really come first. It’s our priority each and every day to provide the best possible care to our herd. Before we feed ourselves, we feed our cattle. Before we move on to the other tasks on our lists, we make sure that the needs of our cattle are met. Before we go to sleep at night, no matter how long or tiring the day has been, we check to ensure that cattle have everything they need. It’s all about the cattle!
