It might be driving a truck and trailer to haul hay to Farm life farm. Whatever is going on, everybody helps out. Weather is a big deal to farmers. Long days are normal on the farm. To get that job done, John is up before the sun. All the calves are born?
No matter how big your farm or your farm family, it takes a village to manage it all. It might be picking up corn from the feed mill to feed the cows.
Farming is about the same… there are a lot of early mornings and late nights, usually on the same day! When that creek floods, it also covers our driveway! Even our son gets involved — every vehicle can be used to haul something!
No matter what the job, everybody has a way to pitch in. Friends and family pitch in on almost every job — from loaning equipment, to helping vaccinate cattle, to picking up hay out of the fields, to making dinner for everyone, to helping with the kids so the bigger jobs can get done.
