Last Friday, I took my niece to the Iowa State University Dairy Barns for their June Dairy Month Celebration. We learned some neat things about dairy cows. Especially that on a nice day they don't stink very much and that lactating cows get feed that smells very sweet. So sweet that it's all you smell in their barn. Of course, the curtains were up and the fans were on. Maybe that was for all the city folk!
Below is a photo from the previous weekend when we went to a dairy farm west of town. They are all being cows in this shot. The ladies in the background were all about to calve.
Mrs. Whackadoodle next door is up to something. This line appeared along the property divide and it is capped off with...
This stick by our gate. You can't see it very well, but at the bottom there's a festive ribbon attached to the stick. And it isn't even my birthday! Aw, shucks!
I'll let you know if the meaning of the stick is ever revealed. Maybe there's been a police report filed.
