Moosworthy Information Straight from the Dairy!

Wow Wow Wubbzy Goes to the County Fair

In previous posts, I mentioned that every year our family takes a few cows to the local county fair. The fair, while fun, takes a lot of preparation. It’s essentially a beauty pageant for the cows, and they are judged according to how they look. The kids showing have a direct influence on how the cows look, so if you want to win with your cow, you must work hard to help clean her up.

Washing, clipping hair, scrubbing toenails, and fluffing the tail is just some of the work that needs to be done. Fair time definitely means a time of excessive luxury for the cows.

Wow Wow Wubbzy Wubbzy Wubbzy Wow Wow went to the fair this year. Wubbzy’s growth was stunted when he was just a small calf, so he never grew very big. Usually the bigger the calf is the higher chance of winning the show so we urged my sister not to take him. But how could you not want to take Wubbzy!

Wubbzy was probably one of the smallest calves at the fair. But even though he was small in stature, Wubbzy was enormous in personality. You couldn’t find a more popular calf with the ladies.

Wubbzy had loads of fun at the fair, and my little brother couldn’t help but show Wubbzy around all over the fairgrounds. My little bro took Wubbzy around showing him off.

When it came time for the show, Wubbzy was the calmest calf there. Unfortunately Wubbzy didn’t win, he lost like we all expected. But Wubbzy didn’t care. I think he just likes to think he was a winner from the other end!

Here are some of the pictures from the fair!

No extra time!

time-management-clock

Many people may think that I have given up on my blog since there have been no new posts for awhile. I would like to say that that is not the case; I’ve just been busy doing other things, and haven’t been able to find time to do any writing. I’ve been busy doing a variety of things which I will share in my blog, so keep reading my blog.

Work never ceases on the family farm. Most people don’t realize that the dairy operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Worst of all, there is no holidays. In fact, all the problems seem to happen around those times. 🙂

The craziness has settled down a bit, so I’ll be writing regularly again. My next posting should be posted in a little bit, about Wow Wow Wubbzy going to the local county fair!

About Crazy Moos

Welcome to the Crazy Moos blog! Crazy Moos is a play on words, basically trying to create a fun environment (crazy) for dairy news (moos). The overall goal of this blog is to communicate “moosworthy information” (newsworthy information) about the dairy industry and important happening on the dairy farm. Hopefully this blog will help people learn about various aspects of the dairy industry and what happens on the dairy farm. Visit regularly for new blog postings!

About Me

I am a 3rd generation dairyman in California, and our dairy farm really is a reflection of the American dream. My grandfather came to America from Europe after World War II in search of greater opportunities, and a safer place to raise a family. He came to America with hardly anything except his exceptional appreciation for hard work. My grandpa after a few years was able to start his own dairy farm and start producing high quality, nutritious milk. In the 70’s, he moved the operation to a more remote area (our current location), and started growing the herd.

Today, I am actively taking part in the farms daily responsibilities. I’m well qualified to be in the dairy industry, and consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the dairy industry having just graduating college with a degrees in dairy science, and dairy processing.

Many people today believe that the dairy industry has been taken over by large corporate farms, but a recent study done shows that most dairies are family owned. In fact, 99% of dairy farms in California are family owned and operated. My whole family is involved on the dairy. My sisters are caretakers of the baby calves, and we guys take care of the cows. There are eight kids in our family, so the dairy is definitely a family affair!

Milk is one of the world’s most nutritious natural products. So many people today are forgetting that milk is filled with many different nutrients, all combined to work in synergy together to maximize the body’s absorption of these nutrients. It’s the perfect blend of nutrients, in nature’s most natural product.

Milk, it’s a natural product, that’s naturally good for you!
