I’ve been contemplating this post for awhile and Cow you’re my bestie but you’re still a heifer shirt…here goes and I’m sorry for the length. I’ve told the story to the few who have asked how my Thanksgiving went and I’d like to share with the rest of my friends and family. As most know, there was a bigger holiday recently that overlapped turkey day.
Cow you’re my bestie but you’re still a heifer shirt, Hoodie, V-neck, Sweater, Longsleeve, Tank Top, Bella Flowy and Unisex, T-shirt
This was just a tiny peek into the reality that so many of my dairy farmer friends live every day and Cow you’re my bestie but you’re still a heifer shirt. Add on top of that trying to pay 2018 bills with a milk price closer to those in the 1980’s, weather unpredictability and a myriad of other stressers and I can see why farmer mental health is a huge issue right now.
Best Cow you’re my bestie but you’re still a heifer shirt
To all of my dairy farmer friends out there, I see you, I hear you and I care. You give everything you have (and then some) to continue farming and provide for your ‘ladies’ and Cow you’re my bestie but you’re still a heifer shirt. While you do these things, you are also providing for your community and for that I am so grateful and humbled. Thank you for all you do and thank you for allowing me my small place in it. Again, sorry for the long post, just lots of feeling rolling around I needed to share. And I’m not sure how I didn’t get one single selfie with a cow or calf?!? I’m slipping!!
