The Bovine Bomb Squad

By the time The Farmer would arrive everything would be disguised. He would only see what he wanted to see, what we wanted him to see: careless calves that had chewed on the wiring of his tractor. But in reality, this was no time for carelessness.

Explosives are nothing to laugh about. To be a professional bovine secret agent you have to be schooled in many arts. No situation should be too much for you and your hooves to handle. Case in point today's lesson: how to defuse a bomb. A pretend bomb has been rigged to The Farmer's tractor for new agents to practice on. 
Whatever you do don't cut the green wire! (Which green wire!?!)
A good agent is like a boy scout in that they should always be prepared and have access to the proper tools.

Bomb Defusing Tools

Being able to deal with extreme situations and volatile issues should make other tasks easy.

The Farmer would never have to do something as dangerous as defusing a bomb. Working on a dairy farm does have risks, however, and safety precautions should always be taken to minimize them. Safety first is exactly what we have seen when The Farmer brings his children to work with him.  We have overheard him say that it is very important for the kids to see what life is like on a farm and take part in the jobs that are appropriate for them to do.

His kids will reap the rewards of the life lessons they have learned on the farm for years to come.  It is unfortunate that the U.S. Department of Labor would like to curtail opportunities youth have by working on the farm.  I say let them get their hands dirty.

We'll take care of the bombs and dangerous stuff so The Farmer and his kids can take care of the rest.

Agent 101, reporting from the Udder Side.


It would seem this report made a tremendous impact on the powers that be and the Dept of Labor has withdrawn their proposal. 

Who said COWS don't make a difference?
