Field trip today with my 10yr old.  It was a good day!  We went to a dairy farm and then a beef farm.   There is so much to feeding those animals!  Its amazing!   I thought they just kind of made food for them from the crops they grow and feed it to them!

Guess what??  They don’t!  They have a mix for each group of cows!   Its really a science!  I actually found that quite fascinating– I know..  weird..

Unfortunately, now I really want  a little brown jersey cow.. They are sooooo CUTE!!!!!   They are even pretty as adults!  We will have to see about that one.

Here are some pics from the day!

Blessings!!

Looking out at the beef herd.  Cute black  and brown steers!!  That lick their own noses!  No, we couldn't do that too!
