I am the daughter that surprised my parents with a date night! I'm helping them answer any questions you have about local dairy farming! AMA! :)
My short bio: After showing my parents just how many people requested that I have them do an AMA, they were just as excited as I was! We didn't realize how little people knew about local farming and we are really hoping for a lot of questions!
I'm here with my mom and dad helping them with this AMA! My dad has been a dairy farmer for 32 years, and my mom started working with him more than 15 years ago! We own a farm that spans across 115 acres. We milk 125 cows twice a day, and when we're not milking we're fixing equipment, feeding the animals, and preparing for the next milking!
I'm so thankful for all of the questions I've received on my other post, but I'm sure it can be difficult to find them! Post here and we will be more than happy to answer your questions :D
My Proof: Here's my dad on the farm! This is called "scraping the lot" which means scraping all the manure into the manure pit so we can spread it all over the crops later on!
And here they are getting ready for your questions! I'll answer as soon as I get back from picking up medicine from the vet!
Thank you guys! Ask us anything! :)
I'll try to answer more questions tomorrow, but my mom has to teach Sunday School in the morning so we're headed to bed for the night! Thank you all for the sincere comments and questions! We've really enjoyed doing this AMA :) g'night!
