Kris is on the MSU Extension Advisory Board and after their meeting yesterday everyone came for a farm tour. Farmers love seeing other farms. It's just the way it is! It was nice seeing everyone and talking - and nice doing a tour with Kris. Questions from farmers are so different than questions from preschoolers ... for example, "What is your philosophy on cow size?"
We had another visit from Lindsey Sanchez, our vet. (You may remember the surgery post.) Josh noticed something was wrong with a cow. We use a stethoscope on cows to listen to their insides - like their rumen. Kris let me listen to it - it was my first time - and it sounded like far off thunder.
Lindsey wasn't sure why this put her 'off feed' (that's the term for her not eating enough and not feeling well), but she suggested feeding her a special mix that we have for cows and giving her some medicine.
Again, Lindsey had to do all this with three boys, team members, and me watching. I should have asked her her philosophy on people watching you at work, taking your picture, and asking a hundred questions the entire time!
