While others I know are vacationing in Cabo, Padre or back East, Ronny and I spent a “vacation” last week helping my family in Colorado artificially inseminating (AI) our cowherd. It was great to spend some time at home and with my parents – even if it was pretty hard work!
I think this is evident to a lot of those in agriculture who take their time-off to help others with work or even doing other agricultural work because it is imperative towards food production.
Here’s the story of how the vacation went.
We start out with the working facilities. Here is Dad’s new toy – a Daniels system to bring the cows into the breeding barn (on the left). This is a pretty awesome system that allows the cows to pretty much walk themselves through it with the least amount of stress possible.
