Some farmers hate doing chores and are a lot of the time disappointed about how much work they have to do without always seeming to get anything out of it. Maybe it’s just cause I’m young still and I don’t do everything on the farm yet, but either way I haven’t felt this disappointment yet.
Even just the other day I was standing in the middle of the barn during milking time and I felt a random sense of pride at what I was doing and what I was able to do. Milking is a very interesting job, and there’s no shortage of bruises or close calls involved. There’s also the fact that the milkers are relatively heavy, even though you get used to it after a while, and sometimes the milkers don’t work.
Another thing I do at the farm is feeding the heifers, other wise known as the cows that haven’t had calves yet and aren’t milking yet. And having limited and rather small space in between the heifers that one has to walk through this isn’t as easy as it sounds. It’s kind of hard to describe it, but sometimes (most of the time) it’s a bit of a struggle. It’s always worth it too. It might not seem like it, but it is.
