Aidan’s week of fencing

This week I learned how to take down fence. Monday I took down quite a bit of fence, and I have to say, this is not the kind of work you want to be tall for. By the end of the day I felt like an old man walking around with a hunch back! TheContinue reading “Aidan’s week of fencing”

Why Cows Wear Earrings

Those aren’t fashion accessories, they are a part of ag-business management and our food-safety system in the US. Just like with humans, cattle are identified by gender.
