The Farmer’s Creed ……………….. I believe that a man’s greatest pride is his dignity and that no calling bestows this more abundantly than farming. ……………….. I believe that hard work and honest sweat are the building blocks of a person’s character. ……………….. I believe that farming, despite its hardships and disappointments, is the most honest and honorable way a man can spend his days on earth. ……………….. I believe that farming nurtures the close family ties that make life rich in ways that money can’t buy. ……………….. I believe my children are learning values that will last a lifetime and can be learned in no other way. ……………..,.. I believe farming provides education or life and that no other occupation teaches so much about birth, growth and maturity in such a variety of ways. ……………….. I believe that the best things in life are indeed free: the splendor of a sunrise, the rapture of wide open spaces and the exhilarating sight of your land greening each spring. ……………….. I believe that true happiness comes from watching your crops ripen in the field. ……………….. I believe that by my toil, I am giving more to the world than I am taking from it. ……………….. I believe that my life will be measured ultimately by what I have done for my fellow man and that when I grow old and sum up my days I can stand tall and feel pride in the life I’ve lived. ……………….. I believe in farming because it makes all of this possible. #greatheartseed 🍂❤️ ……………….. Photo | @hilarybrooke79

Fall work begins next week! Riding, cutting out replacement heifers, preg testing and shipping. Here's a little something for all you doing the same: 🐂🐂🐂 It seems like  working cattle rarely goes as planned, but there are always lessons to be learned: 1. Be in a hurry. The cows will sense this, and allow you to spend more time in the saddle.  2. Find a nice, quiet pair and cut them from the herd. Watch the calf split from his mom, run 100 mph the other direction, and cuss at mom while she stands there pretending to be invisible.  3. The gate the cow has gone through no less than 500 times will suddenly disappear like it never existed. 4. There will always be extra calves in the way, and never the calf you need or want. 5. Cursing explicit profanities does not make the cows cooperate, but it does help lower your blood pressure! I might like cows, and I am grateful for the opportunity to raise them with my family, but sometimes cows are real jerks. See ya in the corrals! – Richelle
