I know I heard them say in the production meeting that we were going to be photographing lots of girls with big ta-tas…..not what I had in mind!
All kidding aside, seeing a dairy farm in operations from sunup to sundown is quite impressive. People in dairy and agriculture are some of the hardest working individuals I have ever met. It doesn’t matter if there is a snow blizzard or an emergency the show must go on!
You might be thinking, okay so you milk a few dairy cows in the morning, wrong! Try 1,000+ cows three times a day. In addition to attending to the milking of cows, they have to constantly monitor the gustation of expecting cows, seperate them to the birthing barn and of course assist in the care of the newborn calves. As if that isn’t enough to fill their work day, this farm is very particular about what they feed their cows so they plant and harvest their own silage.
Smile ladies, cause you’re gettin’ a makeover! Cleaning a 700lb+ cow and getting her to not wander off and step into poo again is sort of like changing a diaper on a 12 month old that has learned to run!
