Harvest 2017: Midwest Dairy Farm Round-Up

by | Nov 2, 2017 | Farm | 0 comments

After I asked you to join me October 12 and observe National Farmers Day, it occurred to me you may not be familiar with the reasons why dairy farmers deserve the spotlight on Farmers Day, and quite honestly any other day throughout the year. Do animals ever not need care? Do we stop eating? No and no. The hidden talents of farmers – weather predictor, equipment fixer, heavy machinery driver, never-sit-down eater-on-the-go… confirms what I see every day. Agriculture is year-round, which means farmers keep the same schedule.

If you or someone you know is part of the 2 percent of the U.S. population involved in agriculture, you know these talents are real, and then some. To help show what’s been happening on dairy farmers across the Midwest during harvest, I’ve collected pictures and videos from farmers. Take a look at #Harvest17 through dairy farmers’ social media posts. Looking back at Harvest 2016 is pretty cool too.
