Running gates. It might seem a boring job, but even little FarmHer Raye knows it's an important job in the farm. When moving livestock there isn't anything quite as frustrating as getting them (finally!) to the gate only to realize it's shut. Having a dedicated farm hand "running gates" makes moving the critters go a whole lot smoother! This little FarmHer takes her job seriously! #worklikeagirl #workethic #hardwork #farmhard #farmkid #cowgirl #raisedright #growgoodthings #farmhand #helper #goodhelpishardtofind #everyonecounts #dedication #growingup #thecrew #bepartofit #nevertoyoung #farmhouse #agdaily #farm365 #growingmorethanfood
I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Today I had the opportunity to judge central district and state #FFA officer candidates. I am always blown away by the students in this organization. Thank you to everyone that interviewed for the work you’re doing for FFA and agriculture. And remember, that there are ups and downs in ag, but if it’s your passion it is worth it.
This man is the embodiment of hard work and loyalty. He’s a cowboy, but for him that means a lot more than riding rank horses and roping cows. For most of his life, he has cared for another man’s cattle. Pulled calves in the frigid cold and made sure their bellies were full when drought made grass scarce. He is an avid learner, soaking up knowledge of the land and the ecosystems that exist around him. I don’t know many men who would dig through cow patties to find a dung beetle, but he will, because that beetle means nutrients are returning to the soil. I’ve been told he often knows what a cow will do even before she does, and his skill and knowledge of horses is something hard to come by these days. On top of all this, he has been a teacher, a coach, a feed yard worker, a mechanic, an oil-field educator, and above all else a strong and steady husband and father. I’m proud to call him Dad. #marleeberryphotography #portrait #cowboy #westernhorseman #texas #rugged #wrangler #cattle #ranch #photography #noblefoundation #oklahoma
