All Work and No Ballet Make for a Dull Cow

Older Agent 377 Practicing an Arabesque

Farm work is hard on everyone, and you don't have to be an undercover bovine spy to know that.  Day in and day out in all types of weather can be a stressful life is you don't take some time for yourself.  The agents of C.A.L.F. are no different.  In order to relieve stress and anxiety I have ordered mandatory ballet lessons for all agents.

It is unknown to most people that the bovine body form is one of the most graceful of God's creatures.  With our long straight backlines, our feminine faces, and our graceful legs, we are powerful dancers.  Oh, the joy of watching a group of cows in motion warms the heart.

I have heard The Farmer say many times that to be productive you must be a happy, healthy cow.  A 1,500 pound bovine producing more milk than a high school football team can drink in a day needs to be in shape.  The Farmer makes sure that a nutritionist keeps a well balanced diet coming to us daily.  And if a little ballet on top of that can help us stay healthy and perform our mission better I'm sure he'll never be the wiser.

  1. I love this. I was in ballet for 13 years and my mom has pictures of me feeding my steers with curlers in my hair.

  2. I had the picture for a while and asked my daughter, who loves taking ballet, what pose it most looked like. Thanks!
