The Cruel Lives Of Calves Without A TV

Think of the minimal requirement for the modern world. If you said the television then you, sir or madam, are correct. So I ask you why does The Farmer not allow us to have one in the calf barn?

There are so many important things we are missing out on like the new Bachelor show, or the news and stuff. Yes, we could clickity-click dot com our shows and news on the internet, but there is something wonderfully couch potatoie like in watching television. That reminds me. We also need a couch.

This is what The Farmer thinks is appropriate for dairy calves to have; fresh bedding, hay, grain, water, and milk. He does a good job of feeding most of the time.

Like I said, most of the time. Have you ever had the problem of not being fed fast enough? Yeah, me too.

Remember, if The Farmer asks you why there were hoof marks on the couch in his living room and calf slobber on his television remote you don't know anything about it. Maybe he'll get the hint soon.

Studying Cow Comfort

"Who's giving me my pedicure?"
Yesterday The Farmer went back to school. Sort of. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture has several "Master" programs that farmers can take advantage of for different commodities like goats, beef cattle, and dairy. He already has his certification, but in order to keep it he has to do continuing education.

Cow Appreciation Day On The Farm

Okay, so most new calves are up and nursing their momma pretty soon. Others, like me, need a little help. I was starving, well, maybe not starving, but I was very hungry for some milk and I told my momma I was going to need some help. That was when The Farmer stepped in. He worked with me and my momma and showed me where the milk came from. After a few minutes I got the hand of it, but he kept on helping. Finally I was like,

"Dude, I got this!"
