Laboring on Labor Day

High ho high ho, it's off to work we go. Labor, labor, labor is all we ever do. Ok, that's not true at all. Yes, we are milked twice a day, but what do we do the rest of the time? I mean of course I have to do my work for Agent 101, but there is plenty of down time for all of us cows. We spend quite a bit of time hanging out in the pasture and eating. Now, if you want to know who does labor everyday I can tell you: The Farmer.

The Farmer is the one who is always on duty; even when he tries to take a day off, I might add. We've got to have someone to milk us, make sure we have fresh water, hay, and grain, and throw some general attention our way throughout the day to let us know somebody cares.

So on this Labor Day when you're enjoying a nice glass of milk for breakfast or an ice cream treat to cool yourself off in the afternoon, think of The Farmer who is taking care of us and hoping you enjoy the fruits of his and our labor.

  1. Were you guys lucky enough to get some rain? I hope the remnants of Isaac helped break the drought for you, but not cause any floods.

    1. We did get some of the rain and so much so The Farmer has not been able to do any chopping the last few days. -Agent 422
