I took my husband to his temp job yesterday. While we were there for a short moment. We got to see a whole bunch of cows and how they were being milked. It was exciting to see expecially for my 4 year old Nate. This was the first time for me as well. I still have it in back of my head that they milk cows by hand. Have you've ever been on a farm and if so what was your first time experience like?

In my religion right before Yom Kippur. Everyone gathers to a place and takes a chicken and twirls them over there heads. Then they are given over for slaughter.

Yes I have been on a farm before. I have seen it done by hand and by machine myself. Most of the cows nowadays that are milked for exporting of milk do it by machine. I knew a family once that had a cow and the cow wouldn't give milk to anyone but their mother. I guess some cows can be very finicky.

I've visited farms when I was younger, for field trips. Don't know if they still do that or not. The most memorable experience for me at a farm was when I was dating my husband and I got to milk an animal. It wasn't a cow though, so I'm not totally sure what it was. It was weird, but interesting. That's what I remember the most.
