Striped Cows and Other Nonsense

So I work at a dairy farm with many lovely ladies, and figured I should start sharing about it. It’s called Echo Farm, and you can find it on facebook at Echo Farm Puddings. Echo Farm is a certified humane dairy farm, the only one in the country. I milk cows there and take care of them, making sure that they’re happy and have plenty of TLC. There’s about 200 of them and each one has a name and a personality to go with. I’ll have more pictures throughout, hopefully creating an image of the dairy industry that everyone can learn about and relate to.

Did you know: cows have best friends. True story. My one cow, Alli-Oop is her name, had a friend at the farm she used to live at. From the moment that she stepped onto the farm as a wee lass, this cow named Princess came over and checked her out and from that moment on they became inseparable.

I jut realized that there is a huge difference between being told to lose weight and to eat healthier. I know someone who got really offended when she was told to eat healthier so I’d like to point out how they mean different things. Being told to lose weight is in fact offensive and sometimes IS…

This is actually a really good point I never thought about. I’ll have to keep this in mind.

So I built myself a blanket fort but have no one to share it with. ‘Tis a travesty.

So this is actually really relevant to me.

So I hear a lot about protests for things that are good. Well another thing that is good is food. It also happens to be important. But I haven’t heard of many or any protests about the food/agriculture system. Maybe I should change that.

Or at least take a survey with questions asking people where they think food comes from and how it becomes what it is in the end. That would be something interesting.

The possibilities are endless.

When did agriculture become a right to fight for instead of a necessity?
