Dairy Farming and Christmas

There's no doubt that Christmas is a busy time.  Family gatherings, parties, church services, shopping for presents, and all the other things we do make it a little chaotic around the house.  For dairy farmers there is one constant thing and that is milking time.

Everything, including Christmas, in some way revolves around the cows.  What we do and when we do it has to be before or after milking and feeding.  That's just part of dairy farming. So if we arrive a little late to something it is only because we wanted the "girls" to be well fed and taken care of.

But the big question most folks want to know is do cows celebrate Christmas? I'll let you judge for yourself, but I will add that they did decorate with some lights again this year.
