Motherhood: In all its shapes and forms.


I thought this was most appropriate to post on today of all days. I first saw this sign when my teacher pulled up a slide in my dairy production class. I’m a word geek, alright? There are a zillion and one quotes I’ve fallen in love with, but I thought this was one of the most beautiful pieces I’ve heard on the human-animal relationship; the relationship between the farmer and the farmed. It paints the appreciation of how our animals give to us even in their most intimate, natural, and beautiful of life’s processes.

Here’s a very special shoutout to all our mothers working in agriculture (on two legs or four for that matter) who balance two of life’s most sacred callings at the same time. Happy Mother’s Day!
