I started working on this post well over a week ago, with plans for posting it on Father's Day. And here I am finishing it up now. That's kind of how everything feels right now — about a week behind.
But, just because Father's Day has passed, doesn't mean I can't celebrate the great farm dads in my life. I think these photos are too great to not share. And, if you want to read the column I wrote about farm dads, you can find it on the main Dairy Star site.
|Glen and Dan milking Dinah. Dinah was Dan's first favorite cow.|
|Glen and Dan taking a break together.|
|Glen and Monika unloading TMR for the cows.|
|The moment which inspired Glen to say,|
"I think we're going to need a skidloader for each kid someday.
|Break time in the barn. Ice cream is always better when it's shared.|
|Dan and Papa Dad going out to check the|
beef cows on one of our trips up north.
|Dan helping Papa Vern fill the hoppers on the corn planter.|
|Dan telling my Grandpa Erwin about the fly swatter.|
Happy belated Father's Day!
