following is taken from the
FARMER Magazine a column written by Editor Jack Odle.
After reading it, I was convinced more than ever, that farm life is
"quite simply-the best." I think you will agree.
REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW, I LEARNED GROWING UP ON A FARM
I learned it is better to point out that lame heifer to a buyer
rather than wait for the buyer to find her in the herd-or worse,
not find her.
I learned the importance of giving to those in their hour of
need. It could be taking a casserole to someone's home
after a funeral or combing the wheat field of a farmer who has
Death. I've seen calves, lambs, pigs, puppies, and kittens
born, often right before my eyes. But I also witnessed
death and the harshness of nature before I was three years old.
I've seen my Dad get off his tractor to move a bird's nest out
of the way so he could cultivate the field.
I've watched the planting of tiny seed and had the assurance
that they would sprout and make a good crop. I've
watched a newborn calf struggle to its feet and understood this
fragile animal would grow into a productive cow.
Ethic. I remember looking out at a field full of hay bales
and wondering if we would ever get them unloaded and hauled into
the barn. I came to realize that if you work steadily and
stick to it those bales will slowly disappear from the field.
I know everything happens according to nature's schedule.
We can't speed it up or slow it down; we can only work within
