Living on a farm is a busy lifestyle. Typical days begin before sun-up and end shortly after sun-down. Summer offers flexibility in this 24-7 schedule for dairy farm families. Days are still lengthy, but families enjoy more time for outdoor activities, working together to care for their animals, and family dinners at dinnertime (at least, more often). When August rolls around though, farmers begin preparing their family for a new routine and going back to school.
