Farmer Johns, A Cow Man

Today was my monthly Cattlewomens meeting and 
I was proud to announce that JS and I are
 officially in the cow business.

Our friend and neighbor is selling all of his cows and calve.
He's retiring for the second time.  He's in his 80s....
so we bought his calves, all four of them.
One bull  and three heifers.  Theses are the two older
heifers, the bull calf and the other heifer are not 
quite old enough to be weaned yet.

JS is just as proud as he can be.  I on the other hand,
am not to sure how profitable this first year is going to be.

We're already into one fence post 

and two new tires.  

There's more to this story, 
but I can't seem to tell it without cussing.

Congratulations! You have the dog to help.

It is a hard business and it may not be profitable for a few years but there is no taste like the taste of your own beef on the table.
