🍾BIG NEWS!! 🎉If you saw my stories from early, you might have seen that today I got some exciting news. I am OFFICIALLY certified as a Technical Service Provider for NRCS! This has been a long time coming. When I first took the training course back in July 2017, I had a brand new baby and a 3 year old. My mom traveled with me so I could continue nursing while attending the week long class. Then following that, I had to take several online courses, passed multiple tests and complete a Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan. With having two young girls and all the hurdles I have faced in the last nine months, I thought I would never complete this certification. But today I did! I am so proud of myself! I am so excited to use the certification to continue to assist dairy farmers with comprehensive nutrient management plans, irrigation water management and CAPs. Head over to my stories and let me know how I should celebrate! 🍾🎉 So far there have been a lot of suggestions to have my favorite drink and eat some ice cream 🍨😂 — And to all the moms struggling with career and family balance. I FEEL YOU! But we are strong and can get it done. (It just might take us a little longer 😉) #WomensWorkWednesday

My favorite view. I was inside the rotary watching the cows go around on a tour the other day and I guess I haven’t explained some of the electronics of the rotary in awhile. • • Each cow is tagged with an RFID tag, a little white circle in their ear, which is read by a sensor when they step onto the rotary. • • The sensor then sends that number to the computer on the bottom/inside of the rotary, pictures here. This computer then records the amount of milk that cow gives, the time is takes her to milk out, the time is takes for her to reach peak flow (extremely important for cow health) and so much more. • • All of this information is collected in our herdsman computer in a program called DairyComp. With this information we are able to sort cows to make sure they’re in the correct milk group and not slowing down other cows around her, we can detect sickness and a whole bunch of other things to make sure our farm is running as efficiently as possible. • • As always if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask! 🐮💛

"Fun facts" you probably already know:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I'm literally the crazy cat lady. And the crazy goat lady. And the crazy horse/donkey/dog lady. Maybe I'm just a crazy lady? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I've been a horse-obsessed little girl for as long as I can remember. Even now, at 29 years old.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I work in Human Resources by day and fill my soul taking photos of those I love in all the other hours.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I have this dream of being able to serve as many aspiring photographers as possible, by teaching them everything I can… because photography has given me a way to express myself artistically in a way I never thought I'd be able to. Seriously, I'm an open book! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I started college as a Journalism major because I love photos + words but I switched to business when it became glaringly obvious I wasn't going to pass Spanish. 🙈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • My favorite TV show is Friends and I reference it pretty much daily. How YOU doin'? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • I 100% don't consider myself a horse trainer but I also 100% believe we are training our horses with every interaction we have with them. It's a conundrum, for sure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • If you're obsessed with Harry Potter, Miranda Lambert, Amazon Prime, and quality tack… we can be friends. ❤
