D is for Dairy Farm

Blogging Through the Alphabet

On our trip to South Dakota to visit Grandma for her 90th birthday celebration, we had the opportunity to visit my husband's cousin's house.  He married an amazing girl who is a dairy farmer!  Yes, I said SHE is a dairy farmer.  He has joined her in running the dairy at their home, but the dairy was her idea and she is the one in charge!

It's always lovely when you can count a trip to your relative's house as a field trip :).  We had a really fun time getting to see all the goings on at a small home dairy.





I think the kids had more fun playing with the dog and cat.   





These little ones were soooo cute!!!  I would have taken one home if they didn't get any bigger...which of course they do!



The pet sheep!  They had names, I think they were Boris and Delores.  They were so funny!




Milking!



It was a really neat experience to see all the cows lined up for milking.  DH's cousin and his wife are the only two working there and they work very hard!  I don't think it would be something I would want to do, but they truly enjoy doing it and it was fun to watch!

Be sure to check out what other bloggers wrote about for the letter D at Ben and Me.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!
