To Alam In Indonesia



Alam and thank you for visiting and commenting in my blog. I found your comment very interesting. I'm sure our way of raising cattle is very different then the way there. Most winters here we don't even wear a coat so you can see how the cattle would not need a barn so it would be a waste of time and money to build them. The cattle like to be out grazing or just laying around chewing their cuds. Our ranches are mostly large and have fences to keep the cattle in. They do get out on occasion but are rounded up and put back in as soon as possible as it is a danger to motorist and to the cows themselves. Building fences or repairing them is a lot of hot hard work. Last summer we had 59 days of over 100 temps. but it isn't always that hot. It was an unusual summer as this cold and wet winter is unusual. As for the thieves you mentioned, people who steal cattle are called cattle rustlers. If caught they serve prison time. You seem to understand English well and write well so please come back again. I'm sorry I don't understand your language. Paula from south Texas

My first husband and his Father had a small dairy of maybe 48/53 Jerseys. They were high cream tested and we contracted with an outfit here by the name of Foster Farms. I have so many great memories of that time in my life. Never mind the 4:00 am milking time, and the fact that I one morning while calling in the cows, I stepped off of the cement platform and sank up to my hips in cow dookey and mud, sinking & screaming, sinking faster! Screaming LOUDER!...GOOD TIMES...GOOD TIMES! I was 19 then, I'm 56 now, and it's STILL the topic of family conversations...and it's still funny :-}...Thought I'd share...Kittie
