These two are the sixth generation to live on this farm, and if they choose, fourth generation dairy farmers (fifth on my side!). It’s pretty special to live, work and play where so many have before us. . . . #dairyfarming #farmlife #farm365 #country_features #agdaily #farm_snaps #agmorethanever #trb_rural #pocket_farms #cdnag #agproud #canadianmilk #holsteinpassion #herestocdnag #ontag
"Throughout the week, I was inspired and reinvigorated for the future of dairy by the great guest speakers, the Alta team and by my fellow dairy producers. For the first time in a long time, I felt optimistic for the future of the dairy industry. This week we talked about technology, innovation, and efficiency. And through improvements to our genetics, we will be raising the next generation of cows that continue to be the best cows in the world." Thanks to @altageneticsdairy, we just got back from spending the most incredible week in Alberta, Canada. Check out my new blog (link in bio) for the highlights from the trip.
Dear Heavenly Father,. . Things are difficult down here for our farmers, ranchers, and dairyman. They are working long hours with little pay and are continually scrutinized by the media for feeding our communities all over the world. . . Some continue to operate strongly through the market volatility and some aren’t as lucky. Some have gotten a lot of rain and others are fighting fires. Please be with them all through their business decisions, the uncontrollable situations, and the ever changing regulations that could affect their lively hoods. Help them to stay strong and continue to do what is right as they all deeply care about their animals and food they are raising. Lord, you have truly blessed us with one of the best professions in the world!. . In your Son’s name,. . Amen!. . #dontfencemein #farmersprayer #cattletales #ranchersprayer #dairymansprayer #agchat #agvocate #agdaily #ingodwetrust #farmer #rancher #dairy #sunsetphotography #prayers #agmorethanever #farmher #agriculture #farmlife #farmlifestyle #farmliving #rethinktheranch #landscapephotography #canonphotography #desertair #farm365 #sustainableagriculture #sustainablefarming

❤️❤️ A poem I wrote for my parents a few years ago: God made the world, with its wide open spaces grasslands, mountains, and majestic places Then paused and said, it needs one more thing- Someone to care for the land and the stock, to provide others with food, and watch over His flock So God made the rancher, with leathery hands and a gentle, knowing eye with patience and humor, and a resourceful mind enduring and strong weathered but kind To care for His pastures and do manual labor to work to the bone yet commune with the Lord in the early quiet hours When He completed the task He had started He was delighted and proud and greatly rewarded For the world, when seen through a rancher’s eyes is a little more beautiful a little more fruitful a little more pleasant and a little more like paradise. ~By Richelle Barrett
