From sun up to long after sun set FarmHer Raye is on the job. Tenacity fueled by chocolate milk from the cow she helps milk daily. Her work ethic is impressive, many adults would be well served if they had half the drive for a job well done as she possesses… #farmhard #kidfarmer #pintsize #farmboss #kidcowboy #bootsandroots #tenacity #gogetter #ethics #unstoppable #upandatem #fierce #hardwork #dedicated #passionate #driven #agallday #agdaily #farmlifeblessedlife #blessedmama #goodkid

Who love their cows this much? ❤️These gentle giants are so easy to love, it's basically impossible for farmers to not care for their girls. Cows are amazing creatures, and they put their trust in their caretakers because they know if there is beautiful sunshine, 30 inches of snow, a breakdown, a family wedding… no matter what, we are there for them. Farmers love their cows just as much as you love your pets. This fact alone is why I love the ag industry so much!
So often I hear “farmers don’t care about their animals.” 99% of the time, that is not the case. • This (horribly pictured) steer here is Billy. Billy was a bottle baby. His mom refused him when he was born because he was a twin. So we ended up with him. We took him to schools to educate children about cattle and beef. • My father and Billy loved each other. Children loved petting Billy and seeing a cow up close! Time passed, Billy got bigger. He broke every fence we had, so we took him to the neighbors. He broke their fence too. We built new fence and took him back. Then he taught our other cows bad habits. • Finally it got to the point where he became dangerous, not just because of his size but because of his “cow/dog” demeanor. So we made the difficult decision to sell him. It wasn’t an easy one at all. Because we loved him so much. He really was part of the family. • Every time I hear that farmers don’t care about their animals, I think of dad in the hospital and the only thing that distracted him from the pain was FaceTiming with Billy. And Billy getting excited about seeing him and I just smile and politely disagree. #cattletales #beefmagshares
