The Not So Glamour Part of Farming

While we have the most beautiful sunsets, and we have these wide open spaces and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, farming definitely has its ugly side.

Breeding cattle is like anything, it’s awesome while everything flows, cattle have feed, calving easily, calves are healthy but then…..BOOM…. crap happens and you have a dying calf, mother with no milk, and humans trying ever so desperately to save it. In the end it’s kinder to the calf to euthanise it and end the suffering of its tiny body. It used to affect me terribly, and even though I still hate it, I can look past myself and do what’s best for the calf.

So yes farming has a huge amounts of positives but it’s hard work and sometimes heart wrenching but I would never go back to doing anything else.
